It started on Sept. 20, 1981, in a 13-7 win over Cohasset, and now 199 wins later, Marshfield football head coach Lou Silva sits on career win No. 200, following the Rams' 35-7 win over Falmouth Friday night.
Quarterback Mark Pomella set the tone for the win, setting the Marshfield school record for a passing yardage in a single season, breaking a 25-year-old mark (1,274 yards). Pomella completed four of five pass attempts for 88 yards and two touchdowns, bringing his yardage total for the season to 1,286 yards with one game to play. The previous record was held by Sean Finucane.
The Rams ran out to a 35-0 lead by halftime, but the shutout bid was dashed in the third quarter. Brian Mey returned the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown. Sean Camire hauled in both of Pomella's touchdown passes.
Silva's career record now stands at 200-121-12.
