Barnstable set a new program/school record on Thanksgiving for most points scored by a BHS football team in one season (376), eclipsing the previous mark set in 2010 (372).
Barnstable’s defense has allowed 147 points or 14.7 points per game this season, while averaging 37.6 on the offensive side of the line of scrimmage. Lincoln-Sudbury has scored 272 points this season (24.73 ppg.) and allowed just 89 points on defense (8.09 ppg.). Barnstable boasts 10 Old Colony League All-Stars this year in the depleted, three-team OCL, but BHS put the finishing touches on an unbeaten regular season on Turkey Day – just the 5th all-time in the school’s 120-year-old football program – and quarterback Nick Peabody has thus far staged the second-best individual season in school history at that position with 2,340 yds. passing and 30 touchdown passes to date.
