Island Cup
Vineyard football coach Don Herman will be hosting the 25th edition of his football instructional clinic on July 26 to July 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. each day.
Football season is around the corner and the time to start getting ready is now.


Junior Ben Clark notched two touchdowns and rushed for 141 yards to lead the Vineyard football team’s offensive effort Friday night as they defeated visiting Bellingham 28-0. The team now holds a 5-5 record as they head into the final game of the season, the annual Island Cup clash against Nantucket.


The Island Cup rivalry between Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket includes blowout wins and hard-fought losses. On Saturday the Vineyarders made history by defeating Nantucket 14-0 on Whaler home turf at the Island Cup.

The coveted silver trophy is back on Martha's Vineyard, with the Vineyard football team defeating Nantucket 14-0 in the annual Island Cup Saturday. Sophomore Jacob Cardoza carried the day with two touchdowns.

Ken Goldberg has called Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School football games for 33 years, and will be in the booth again on Nantucket Saturday for the Island Cup game. His prediction: “When you get to the Nantucket-Vineyard game, forget what the season records are.”
For one day every year, the Island Cup trophy sits on the sidelines of a football field, where its home for the next year will be determined. For the other 364 days, the trophy sits in a case.

In the final home game of the season, the regional high school team fell 22-8 to Norwell on Friday night. The team is now 3-5 for the season, and with a 10th ranking in the division will not move on to the playoffs.

On Friday Norwell drove in the first touchdown midway through the second quarter, but the Vineyard answered on the next drive with a score of their own. Senior Joe Turney took the handoff from quarterback Tony Breth, rushing six yards for the touchdown. Turney and Breth then teamed up for the two-point conversion, tying the game at 8-8.
