Player of the Game: Barnstable's Nick Peabody


HYANNIS, Mass. -- For most teams, putting up 55 points in any particular game is a noteworthy performance.

Through two weeks of the MIAA football season, No. 4 Barnstable has made it commonplace with a pair of identical 55-point scores.

Their latest victim? Backyard rival Dennis-Yarmouth in a 55-14 thumping Friday night at Barnstable High, which was our first Massachusetts Army National Guard Game of the Week.

A capacity crowd watching Red Raiders quarterback Nick Peabody dazzle, going 15 of 18 for 350 yards and four touchdowns, including a 98-yard bomb to Dylan Morris in the first quarter.

For his efforts, Peabody was named our Player of the Game.
