Marshfield High football hosts Duxbury Thanksgiving morning

MARSHFIELD – Want to add some spice to your Thanksgiving turkey? Just add in a storyline where the winning team takes home the league championship and BAM … instant added fuel to the already great gridiron rivalry between the Marshfield High and Duxbury High football programs. 

Marshfield (7-3) and Duxbury (10-0) have matching 4-0 records in Patriot League games this season, so the annual Thanksgiving morning battle will be for the Keenan Division championship. The game is set for a 10 a.m. start at Marshfield High this season.

Marshfield hasn’t hosted the annual holiday football game since 2019. 

The edge in the overall Thanksgiving rivalry stands with the Rams right now, who lead 18-16-2 coming in. Marshfield dominated with wins from 2013-2017, but Duxbury ended the streak in 2018 with a 44-22 win. The Rams jumped back on top in 2019 with a 41-0 shutout. Covid canceled the game in 2020, but it was back in full force last year when Duxbury raced out to a 38-28 win.
