HW’s Keys to Victory: Hamilton-Wenham has plenty of motivation in the tank; namely, a 36-0 loss at home in last year’s Turkey Day clash. In order to grab just their second Thanksgiving win in five years, the Generals will need to lean on their dynamic duo of Coffey and Monahan to produce points, while their defense must stifle Ipswich’s ground-and-pound rushing attack while not allowing the hosts to eat up the clock.

Ipswich’s Keys to Victory: In a battle between HW’s high-flying passing attack and Ipswich’s tough-nosed running game, the Tigers will need to control the pace of the contest and win the time of possession battle. If Ipswich’s four-headed backfield of James, Terry, Huntley and Longren can grind out first downs and keep Ian Coffey and Co. off of the field, then it’ll be another good holiday for the Tigers.

Potential Unsung Heroes: With Hamilton-Wenham’s passing attack likely to be the focus of Ipswich’s game plan, Colby Cala could have an impactful day on the ground for the Generals. For Ipswich, Chase Huntley is a big play waiting to happen, averaging over 6 yards per carry and 32 yards per reception along with 5 TDs. A well-timed scoring play from Huntley could be a huge momentum swing for the Tigers.
