Colonels, Terriers on road in Week 3
BRATTLEBORO — The only Week 3 matchup pitting two undefeated teams against each other will take place in Manchester on Saturday at 1 p.m., when Bellows Falls (2-0) faces Burr and Burton (2-0).
The Terriers took on the Bulldogs in the state championship game in both 2015 and 2016, losing 28-7 and then turning the tables with a 20-14 victory.
Burr and Burton had five touchdown runs and a couple of TD strikes through the air from Joey McCoy during a 51-14 rout of North Country in their opener. Last weekend, Jake Baker and John Morgantini each entered the house twice in a 62-16 win over U-32.
Running back Jed Lober has racked up 188 total rushing yards and four scores to lead Bellows Falls in easy victories over Spaulding and Lyndon. BF quarterback Griffin Waryas is 8-of-19 passing for 151 yards this season.
Also on Saturday, Brattleboro (0-2) will be seeking its first win when playing at Mount Mansfield (1-1) at 3 p.m.
After getting annihilated by Rutland in their opener, the Colonels gave Colchester all it wanted in a heartbreaking 27-19 loss in Week 2.
BUHS quarterback Tyler Millerick has completed 17 of 34 passes for 247 yards and a couple of picks. The junior has also run the ball 28 times for 131 yards.
Brattleboro's defense will be asked to slow down Mount Mansfield ball carrier Jehric Hackney, who went off for 213 yards on the ground when the Cougars outscored Saint Albans 30-21 in their latest contest.
