The Falcons clinched their third straight league title with a 41-22 romp over Hull.

MASHPEE — The Mashpee football team pounced on Hull right from the start and made one thing clear: The South Shore League still goes through the Falcons.

Senior captain Devaun Ford zigzagged his way 66 yards for a touchdown on the opening kickoff and returned another one to paydirt in the fourth quarter, helping the Falcons clinch their third straight league title with a 41-22 romp over Hull on a rainy Saturday afternoon at Michael S. Horne Stadium.

“It was good to come out hot,” said Ford, who also finished with two rushing touchdowns and an interception. “I knew I had to get the guys going.”

Mashpee (6-0), which now has three kick return TDs in its last two games, extended its state-best active win streak to 26, breaking the mark set by King Philip that ended in Week 1 this season. The Falcons are exactly halfway to tying Acton-Boxboro’s state record 52 straight wins from 2001-05.

“It’s surprising as much as anything else,” Mashpee head coach Matt Triveri said of the win streak. “You never think you’re going to go on a run like this. I’m proud of what the program has done.”

Special teams allowed Mashpee to be more efficient on offense. Even without two starting offensive linemen, the Falcons ran just 14 plays in the first half, yet they took a 27-0 lead into the locker room.

“We didn’t have to grind it out with backups, which is helpful,” Triveri said.

Nick Bartolomei finished with 11 tackles to lead the defense, which allowed just one first down in the opening 20 minutes.

Mashpee could have done even more damage as Ford and fellow senior captain Xavier Gonsalves both returned punts called back by penalties.

Ford set up the second score with a huge downfield block that sprung Cam Kergo’s 70-yard jet sweep run down the left sideline. Ford ran in from five yards out on the next play, and with just three offensive plays in over three minutes, Mashpee had a 14-0 lead.

“Our skill guys have done a great job on the edge,” Treviri said. “We have plays where we get to the edge, those guys get into people. There’s no selfishness.”

Mashpee started its next three drives in Hull territory. Jack Vinitsky, a junior, had a 6-yard TD run, and junior quarterback Ian Miller hit Gonsalves on an 18-yard TD pass. Besides the two-point conversion fade to Gonsalves that was Miller’s only completed pass.

Miller was intercepted in between those two scores, and the Falcons also lost a fumble in the first half.

Just like the first half, though, special teams made an impact to open the second half as first-year player Ben Nadzeika (3 tackles) lay a thundering hit on the kick returner, and Mashpee recovered the fumble at the 11.

Ford then scored on a pitch to the left, and the Falcons cycled in their second stringers to finish off a 26th straight win.

The Falcons go for 27 straight when they finish off the regular season against Division 7 North powerhouse St. Mary’s next weekend in Lynn in a rematch of last year’s D7 state semifinal.

They then begin the South Sectional playoffs at home, where the three-time defending state champs haven’t lost since losing to neighboring Falmouth on Sept. 18, 2015.

“It’s just part of the culture now,” Ford said. “We look forward to winning. We look forward to going far and making a long run. We don’t want to be done yet.”
