Although Dartmouth made the first scores, they were the only points they made, with FHS scoring 24 unanswered points for a final score of 24-7.
Both teams played hard, with at least six injuries.
The two teams are not in the same division, but meet up every year on Thanksgiving Day, alternating venues. This year Dartmouth hosted, losing on their home turf.
