Minnechaug won Thanksgiving game on the road, defeating Amherst

Falcons defeated Hurricanes 39-16

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – The Minnechaug Falcons traveled to Hampshire County this Thanksgiving Day, to take on the Hurricanes of Amherst Regional High School.

The Falcons returned to Hampden County with a solid win under their belts, beating Amherst 49-16.

One Minnechaug fan told 22News that it was important to come and cheer on his grandson.

“We’ve supported Maxwell all four years he’s been with the football team. Go to all of his games,” Larry Moriarty of Wilbraham said. “It really makes them happy, when he looks up and he sees us and he smiles we smile to him, wave.”

It is now in the history books: on Thanksgiving Day 2016, it was Minnechaug Regional-49 Amherst Regional-16.
