Elwell Trophy at stake in Week 7

BRATTLEBORO — Third-year Brattleboro Union High School varsity football coach Chad Pacheco is a perfect 2-for-2 against rival MAU, winning the Elwell Trophy game 42-33 in his first season and then 45-7 last year.

He'll be going for the hat trick on Friday night at Natowich Field.

The 3-3 Patriots won't be dealing with Cheick Diakite pounding the ball between the tackles this time. Instead, they will be trying to defend BUHS quarterback Tyler Millerick and his receiving core of Kris Carroll, Chris Frost, Kyle Derosia, Jeremy Rounds and Brenden Gilbeau.

Millerick completed 16 passes for 224 yards and three scores last week versus undefeated Saint Johnsbury. Frost (4 catches, 113 yards) and Carroll (9 catches, 86 yards) were T's main targets.

MAU is coming off of a 40-7 rout of Otter Valley on Homecoming Weekend. Signal-caller Will Fischer ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns to lead the way. Shane Wood and Mickey Bernard also scored on the ground, while Cole Bushee added a pick six and back-up QB Caleb Hay pitched in with a TD strike.

Also on Friday night at 7, Bellows Falls (5-1) will play at Fair Haven (5-1).

The Purple Gang just shut out Mount Abe 54-0. Reno Tuttle and Logan Cota finished with seven tackles each, McGregor Vancor picked off a pass, and Hunter Smith recovered a fumble to lead the BF defense.

Bellows Falls will now be trying to stop standout quarterback Cam Coloutti, who scored on a keeper and also hooked up with Aubrey Ramey for a 21-yard TD pass during Fair Haven's 38-15 rout of U-32 last week.
