Colonels aiming for 2-0 start
BRATTLEBORO — After defeating Division 2 powerhouse Bellows Falls in its season opener, the Brattleboro varsity football team will now face a Windsor squad that has won two of the last three Division 3 state championships.
The Colonels looked unstoppable for three quarters in Westminster. Electric quarterback Tyler Millerick, whose team was shut out in the first 13:24, racked up 151 rushing yards and 239 more through the air. Aaron Petrie (155 receiving yards), Chris Frost (2 interceptions) and Ruchan Karagoz (1 sack) also had huge games for BUHS.
Things did not go as smoothly for Windsor in Week 1. Caleb Meagher had a 50-yard touchdown run and Max Clifford connected with Jordan Place for a 20-yard TD strike as the Yellowjackets fell to BFA-Fairfax 38-14.
The Terriers will host Mount Anthony Union in another 1 p.m. matchup on Saturday.
"MAU is a big, physical team. We will have our hands full. They have a good QB, dangerous receivers and tough linebackers," said Bellows Falls coach Bob Lockerby. "We need to play better assignment football on defense and hold onto the ball on offense. We need a complete 'team first' attitude."
BF quarterback Griff Waryas threw for 176 yards and a pair of scores versus Brattleboro in the opener. Dylan Clark chipped in with 63 receiving yards and an interception.
Caleb Hay had 170 yards passing and two touchdowns as MAU blanked Spaulding 38-0 last week. Gavin Johnson (135 receiving yards) and Hayden Gaudette (72 rushing yards) also burned the Crimson Tide.
