Terriers, Colonels on road in Week 6
BRATTLEBORO — The Bellows Falls varsity football team will be seeking its 10th straight victory over the Cosmos when the rivals face off in Springfield on Friday night at 7.
The Terriers now hold a 57-42 lead in the Trophy Game series that began in 1914.
BF's senior defensive end Dylan Clark was a force to be reckoned with in last year's meeting. He had a sack, a hurry, a pass defense, a tackle for loss, and a pick six as the Purple Gang cruised to a 46-8 win.
Springfield (4-1) isn't exactly taking on Bellows Falls (3-2) at the right time, either. The Terriers are expected to be hungry after giving up 141 rushing yards and 188 passing yards to quarterback Nathan LaRosa during last week's 42-29 home loss to Union-32.
On Saturday night at 6, Brattleboro (5-0) will attempt to remain undefeated when playing at Spaulding (1-4).
The turnover chain will likely travel with the Colonels to Barre after giving the team plenty of incentive in its debut last week. Henry Thurber, Aaron Petrie, Alex Kendall, Conrad Auerbach, Timmy Velazquez and Ruchan Karagoz all had a takeaway as the purple and white zipped Mount Abraham 56-0 during their Homecoming Game on Natowich Field.
But let's face it, everyone is talking about this Brattleboro offense, which scored 49 points against Bellows Falls, hung 61 on Windsor, put up 34 versus Union-32, dropped 56 on North Country, and then did the same to Mount Abe. Dual threat quarterback Tyler Millerick is looking like the Division 2 MVP, with 10 rushing touchdowns and 14 scoring strikes through five games.
