ORR’s Harry Smith breaks touchdown record in Cranberry Bowl
By Matthew Bernat | Sep 08, 2017
Old Rochester Regional High School walked away with a thrilling 40-41 win in Friday night’s Cranberry Bowl versus Wareham on its rival’s home turf.
And senior running back Harry Smith left the field after setting a new school record. Smith scored six touchdowns, earning a career total of 34 and beating the previous record of 30. That record was set by Frank Oliva when he played from 1974 to 1976.
“There was a lot of hard work that paid off tonight,” said Smith. “I’m happy to get the record, and I have to give credit to my team, my linemen and my coach.”
Smith and the rest of the Bulldogs celebrated on the field, hoisting the Cranberry Bowl trophy high after a hard fought game that remained close through four quarters.
“That was the best high school football game I’ve been a part of as a player or as a coach,” said Head Coach Justin Kogler.
Kogler said Smith’s athleticism and positive attitude makes him one of the best, if not the best, running backs in the South Coast Conference.
“He’s the hardest working kid I’ve ever coached,” said Kogler.
Friday marked the first game of the season for the Bulldogs. Up next, the team will face Apponequet at Apponequet Regional High School on Sept. 15 at 7 p.m.
