H-W defended it well the first two times before defensive lineman Nathan Rawlins batted down a fourth-down pass to seal the game. Lyons and Vogus each had a tackle for a loss while Lyons added an interception.

you ought to know "I've been playing with these people for five years. They are great and I couldn't ask for anything better. You can look at any other team and I guarantee you will see no other team that keeps its head up and plays like a team like we do," Ipswich senior captain John Elnagger said about his team's camaraderie. H-W ran 31 first half plays on offense to Ipswich's 13. The second half told a different story as Ipswich grinded out first downs and held a 25-19 advantage in offensive plays ran. Freshman Cam Macri had four kickoff returns for 75 yards for Hamilton-Wenham, which finished 3 for 4 on fourth down in the game. H-W head coach Andrew Morency on Lyons, who leaves H-W with the single season passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns records after just two seasons under center: "Trevor left his mark for sure. It's pretty amazing. I said at the rotary (club) banquet (earlier this week), Trevor is one of, if not the greatest players to ever play (at HW). Trevor put everything on the line today. He deserves it." Needing stops in the second half, the Ipswich defense stepped up huge, allowing just 15 H-W rushing yards on 11 attempts.
