It was a tough day on the gridiron for the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School football team. The Somerset-Berkley Raiders scored a touchdown on an 80 yard return on our first kickoff. And though they didn’t make good on the 2-point conversion, things just went downhill from there.

Despite an interception by Andrew Jacobs Walsh and a second quarter fumble recovery by Kyle Stobie, Vineyarders were down 20-0 at the half. The third quarter didn’t get any better; the Raiders scored again, and once again missed the conversion to make it 26-0.

With 8:49 left in the fourth quarter, Somerset made it 32-0 and the game ended on that score.
