NEFJ 25 DAYS OF THANKSGIVING RIVALRIES – Rockland vs. East Bridgewater

Series Record: This one hasn’t been around long but it’s already been quite competitive, with East Bridgewater leading the series 7-5.

Look at the Rivalry: Rockland took home a 48-14 victory last season. Last year’s game may have been, and most likely will be one of the most significant in rivalry history for the foreseeable future with quarterback Dante Vasquez becoming the all-time leading rusher in Rockland history with a 235-yard, five touchdown performance, three of them on the ground (33 carries).

The win was the fourth in a row for the Dogs’, and the rushing record of 3,468 yards had stood for 23 years. While it’s still one of the newer rivalries and has (at least one) century to go before it’s established as a Thanksgiving Classic, the tight record in the early stages indicates an exciting game every Turkey Day morning for years to come.
