HARWICH – It just wasn't Monomoy's night. First the Sharks lost captain and key player Kyle Charlot to injury in the opening drive. Then the visiting West Bridgewater Wildcats unleashed a scoring fury on the home team en route to a 36-6 victory that left the Sharks feeling more than a little deflated.

The majority of West Bridgewater's touchdowns came in the second quarter, during which they scored 24 points in the Mayflower Athletic Conference game. Meanwhile, Monomoy's lone touchdown came after a quick-thinking Chris Hall, one of Monomoy's five team captains, recovered a Wildcat fumble and sprinted with it to the West Bridgewater 10-yard line, paving the way for Mark Pawlina to score from four yards out.

That would be the only touchdown Monomoy could muster in the outing. Elijah Beasley got them close, but an interception in the end zone gave possession, and control of the game, back to the Wildcats.

Post-season consolation games pending, the game marked Monomoy's last home game until Thanksgiving Day when they host the St. John Paul II Lions at 10 a.m. The Sharks travel to Framingham to face Keefe Tech tomorrow at 7 p.m., no doubt hoping to eke out a win.
