In a turn-around from last year's Thanksgiving Day home loss to St. John's Prep, the Xaverian Hawks pulled away a 28-21 victory on the road in Danvers on Thursday, according to Boston.com's scoreboard. Thursday's victory is a welcome treat for Xaverian, which fell to the Eagles last year, 21-12, on the Hawks' home turf. The victory brings the Hawks' season to 6-5.
The Wolverines finished up the regular season Thursday with the loss on the road.
Looking to come back from last year's Thanksgiving Day loss against Tri-Valley League rivals Holliston, the Westwood Wolverines fell in the annual battle on Thursday with a scoreless effort. In the end, the Panthers pulled away with a 27-0 victory over the Wolverines. Last year on Thanksgiving, the Panthers defeated the Wolverines 34-13 in Westwood. Thursday's defeat comes just two weeks after a hard loss to Hopkinton, which took place on Westwood's turf on Nov. 11.

Therefore, I can’t help you on how long to thaw a frozen turkey, what temperature it should cook or how to make the perfect gravy. And, thank God for that. If you’re a guest this year like me, this column may help. I’m a master at cranberry bread and butternut squash and I’m famous for my stuffed mushrooms, a perfect starter to a day of feasting. You can make the mushrooms ahead of time and just pop them in the oven to reheat before serving. Once again, I’ve relied on my old friend Ina Garten to get me through the important holidays and special occasions. Below…
