The memory of Hingham fans chanting â€œover-ratedâ€, as the #13-ranked Dragons left the field last year following their 17-12 loss to the Harbormen, was still echoing in the minds of fans and players before Friday nightâ€™s game with the defending Patriot League champs.
It wasnâ€™t one of Duxburyâ€™s better performances of the season, but they still dominated an opponent, as they shutout Quincy, 18-0, on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Veteranâ€™s Memorial Stadium in Quincy.
