Barnstable vs. Falmouth

The "Game"

Since 1895, Barnstable High School and Falmouth High School have been part of one of Massachusetts's longest football rivalries. The annual Thanksgiving Day Game ranks fifth oldest in the state behind Leominster-Fitchburg, Boston English-Boston Latin, Needham-Wellesley and Malden-Medford. Barnstable High School has also engaged Provincetown, Yarmouth, Bourne, Middleboro and Chatham High Schools on Thanksgiving Day. The last time Barnstable played a team other than Falmouth on Thanksgiving Day was in 1943 versus Yarmouth.

"Anybody can win this game." — W. Leo Shields, 1948
