Red Raiders Put Clamp Down on Flutie, Natick Red Hawks

They didn’t know what hit them.

Undefeated and touting who some folks thought was the best offensive football player in the state, Natick found out just what the Barnstable High Red Raiders are made of Friday night as the Red Raiders eliminated the visiting Red Hawks from postseason contention, 27-13.

Enter senior co-captain Hayden Murphy.

Murphy, who carried the ball 21 times for 159 yards and scored three touchdowns on the night – including a 55-yarder in the 4th quarter to seal the win – eclipsed the 1,000-yards rushing mark for the second straight season to lead the Red & White to victory. Murphy now has 1,047 yards rushing on the season and Barnstable (8-1) advances next Friday night to play Mansfield (9-0) in the MIAA Division 2 South Sectional Championship. If the Red Raiders defeat Mansfield they will go to the Division 2 Super Bowl the week after Turkey Day.

But Murphy was not nearly alone in this cumulative, Herculean effort by the Red Raiders. Not by a long shot.

Struggling on offense – slightly – and tied at 6-6 with time running out in the second quarter, it was BHS senior outside linebacker Nathan Yingling who snared a Troy Flutie offering at the 50-yard line, broke a tackle and then took it all the way into the end zone to give the home team a 12-6 lead. Dereck Pacheco’s PAT kick was good and the Red Raiders led at halftime 13-6.

But Natick and the Flutie road show wanted none of that as the Red Hawks came out in the second half and scored (including the PAT) to tie it at 13-13.

But that was all she wrote for the visitors.

While Barnstable fizzled on offense and was forced to punt twice to open the second half, it was Murphy on a linebacker blitz who sacked Flutie for a 14-yard loss to set up his Red & White in prime field position. Senior quarterback Kristian Lucashensky – who eclipsed the 1,000-yards passing mark with a brilliant 14-15/113-yard performance on the night – took off running for gains of 7 and 4 yards, then found Murphy at the 1-yard line for a 20-yard gain. Murphy then barreled into the end zone for his second score of the night and a lead the Red Raiders simply refused to relinquish.

In addition to Yingling’s game-changing interception touchdown, Derek Estes and Colby Blaze also turned in interceptions. Blaze’s acrobatic pick-off on Natick’s last gasp to come back with time almost out was nothing short of amazing. The Red Raiders also posted four quarterback sacks on the night.

Lucashensky now has 1,047 yards passing on the season, matching Murphy’s output for rushing yards.

Red Raiders Steamroll Marshfield

Hayden Murphy saved the best overall game of his four-year high school career for Friday night.

Murphy’s 195 yards on 20 carries and four touchdowns made for the most yards gained by him in his high school career in a single game and his four TDs were also a personal best.

Fellow senior running back Justus Chaffee was equally impressive. Chaffee carried the ball 10 times for 147 yards rushing and two touchdowns on runs of 50 and 48 yards. Chaffee’s 147 yards were a career high.

Senior QB Kristian Lucashensky scored as well. Clyde Perry Jr., a junior linebacker, notched his first career interception while playing for Barnstable High. Senior defensive end Conor Walsh notched his first career fumble recovery.

Murphy’s 195 yards makes his tally the 20th best all-time game for a running back in Barnstable High’s 121 years of varsity football. It was also a career-best performance for the senior co-captain. Barnstable’s 48 points also set a new school record for most points scored in a postseason game by the Red Raiders.

Red Raiders Set to Tackle Marshfield: Again

It’s playoff time, baby.

In one of the toughest match-ups in the state, Barnstable (6-1) will face the Marshfield High Rams (4-3) for the second time this season on Friday night (November 1) at 6:00 pm at W. Leo Shields Memorial Field in Hyannis.

The Red Raiders need to win two playoff games to reach the Division 2 Super Bowl in December at Gillette Stadium. Down 20-7 at halftime on October 11, Barnstable scored three touchdowns in the second half and in turn shut the visiting Rams down on offense to take a 29-20 victory. Mike Bilodeau, Derek Estes and Hayden Murphy each scored in the second half, with Murphy scoring earlier in the first half, a 58-yard bomb from quarterback Kristian Lucashensky. Justus Chaffee also scored and all totalled, Murphy had three touchdowns on the night !

Marshfield fell to the D-Y Dolphins in a thriller Friday night (Oct. 25), 40-36, while the Red Raiders captured their third straight Old Colony League Championship title, devouring Dartmouth, 41-6.

Nathan Yingling, a senior outside linebacker, was named Maxpreps Defensive Player of the Game for his 11 tackles on the evening ! Kudos also go out to Johnny Hardy for his fumble recovery and Max Lambert for his blocked PAT kick…a tip of the hat to junior defensive lineman Henry O’Shaughnessy for his first-ever varsity sack !
