Wildcats sputter in loss to Hoosac

LEE — In the run-and-gun spread offense era of football which has permeated all levels of the game, teams Western Massachusetts have been slow to adapt. Two shining examples of sticking to the basics are the Lee Wildcats and Hoosac Valley Hurricanes, who met up Friday night in a rematch of last season’s Division VIII sectional title game.

Just like the game in 2018, the Wildcats fell to the Hurricanes, this time by the score of 12-7, dropping the team under .500 for the first time since the beginning of the 2016 season.

Despite the loss, Lee coach Keith Thomson was exhilarated.

“What you saw tonight was a good old-fashioned Berkshire County slugfest,” Thomson said. “This was a physical, physical football game. I’m proud of our guys and even though we were on the wrong side of the score, that was fun to watch for me because that’s what Berkshire County is known for, physical smash mouth football.”

The matchup was a defensive struggle, a game that harkened back to the days before the forward pass was popular and football was just 22 bodies moving at each other and seeing which side would give out first.

In this game, the Wildcats were the first to blink.
