The Hiller Golf Team ran their season record to 7 - 0 with a 245 -272 victory over the Ashland Clockers today at Glen Ellen C.C. in Millis. The Clockers fell to 1-6 on their season. Leading the way once again for the Hillers was Sr. Capt. Jimmy Hervol who shot a 4 UNDER PAR 32. I was checking back in the Hiller Golf Team history and that's the BEST score for nine holes by any Hiller golfer ever at Glen Ellen C.C. Congrats Captain and how to lead the team today.

The Hopkinton Fire Department is warning town residents about a possible home carbon monoxide inspection scam.

A town resident has reported to us that they’re receiving phone calls from a Chimney Cleaning Company trying to inspect their home carbon monoxide detectors. The company is telling residenst they are representing the Hopkinton Fire Department. The Hopkinton Fire Department only inspects carbon monoxide detectors by request of a homeowner.

Hillers Football and Week 1 Recap

Led once again by Head Coach Jim Girard, the Hillers Football squad returned many of the same names who played big roles last year including QB Pat Ryan RB Drew Donohue, OL/DL Chris Liberta, WR’s Matt Decina and Chase Lampert as well as returning CB Hayden Pareira. Despite many of the offensive weapons returning from last year, the defense did graduate 10 starters after the 2013 season but OL/DL Captain Chris Liberta has faith that the young line can get the job done.

A lot of big names returning for the Hillers from a 2013 team that finished the regular season 6 and 5. Last season the Hillers played 2 playoff games defeating Millis in round 1 and losing to a stacked Stoughton team in game 2. Last year was a very young team and now many of the key starters on the Hillers have some playoff experience under their belt and are hungry once again to fight for a trip to Super Saturday.
