RUTLAND — A couple of speeding fire trucks could be seen from the bleachers late in the first half of Saturday’s Division 2 state championship football game at Alumni Field.

Bellows Falls’ offense was en fuego.

MAU Patriots played the Bellows Falls Terriers in the Division 2 state Football Championships on Saturday, November 13, 2021 in Rutland.

The top-ranked Terriers racked up 511 rushing yards and capped off a perfect season with a 57-35 victory over second-seeded Mount Anthony Union. The BF program has now captured 12 total crowns.

“I’m so excited,” said senior BF offensive lineman Patrick Barbour, who is considering playing at the next level. “I can’t wait to see what’s next for myself and also this team.”

Jake Moore, Peter Kamel, Dillan Perry, Kevin Patterson and Barbour controlled the line of scrimmage from start to finish as the champs scored touchdowns on eight of their 10 total possessions.

“This line just got better and better as the season went along. We worked so hard in the offseason,” noted Barbour.
