Turkey and football.
Name two things that are more synonymous.
Good luck, especially if you’re from the towns of Whitman, Hanson or Abington.
That’s right. Those three towns are set to see their local high schools clash for the 111th time this Thursday at 10 a.m. at Abington.
The Panthers are 5-5 on the season.
They’re coming off of a 21-14 non-playoff victory over Westwood in which senior Ben Pace racked up three interceptions from his safety position.
W-H also owns wins against Pembroke, Foxboro, Silver Lake and Plymouth North.
Abington sits at 4-6, fresh off a 28-0 loss to Rockland in the state quarterfinals.
W-H leads the all-time series 60-47-3.
Elsewhere around W-H:
The Massachusetts All-State Championships were held on Saturday, Mov. 19, at Devens, Massachusetts. Whitman-Hanson had one runner entered in the meet. Junior Sky Bucci-Anderson finished 101st among 189 of the state Div. 1 cross country runners, covering the 5K course in a time of 20:30.
On the mat, W-H cheer placed fourth at states on Sunday, Nov. 20.
