Old Colony Football
The Cougars finally got one in the win column in their April 23 match against Upper Cape, and they did so in dramatic fashion. With the clock winding down in the fourth quarter and the ball on the Rams’ 1-yard line, Old Colony asked Ryan McGuiggan to do what he does best: ground and pound. The senior running back stepped up and crossed the goal line for the third time on the day to deliver the Cougars a 20-18 win. All told, McGuiggan amassed 135 yards.
Old Colony will play its final game of the Fall II season on Friday at home against Diman Voke. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 pm.

Old Colony Golf
Through Monday, the Tri-Town area was home to two undefeated high school fall sports teams. Coming off a 9-0 shutout of Norfolk Aggie, Old Colony golf earned win No. 8 against South Shore to kick off their three consecutive days of play. South Shore put up more of a fight than the Cougars’ previous opponents, but the Cougars still won comfortably, 7-2.
Luke Butler shot a 38 to lead the way, with Brad Weglowski shooting a 40 to capture three points as a pair against South Shore. Michael Niemi won his match, and Will Harrop and Derek Fortunato secured three points together.
Following a Tuesday, April 27, match vs. Tri-County, Old Colony faces South Shore again, this time on the road at 2:45 pm on April 28.
