Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, as it was a beautiful day and as always this morning a packed house over at Hunnewell Field was treated to the 130th installment of Wellesley vs. Needham. Having won last year and holding a 61-59-9 lead all time, the Raiders were not only looking to end the season above 500 but also get a win in the first Thanksgiving game played on the turfed Hunnewell Field. The capacity crowd certainly got their money’s worth as it vintage Wellesley-Needham fashion it was a back and forth game that literally came down to the final play. Could the Raiders pull it off, let’s find out!
Result for 11-23-17
Football: Wellesley 23 Needham 20
Team finishes season 6-5. Congratulations on your second straight victory of the Rockets, and to the seniors best of luck in your future endeavors!
