They make it special in football. The schedule makers did not do that. It was a simple split, basically of big and small.
Honestly, with the playoffs changing, the league should think about an east-west football split, not big and small. Do you think the folks in Tewksbury are happy that they don’t play Lowell? Sorry. Time to go MVC East: CC, Lawrence, Andover, NA, Haverhill and Methuen. MVC West: Lowell, Tewksbury, Dracut, Chelmsford and Billerica. Let the playoffs decide the rest. This should have been done already.
AND DON’T FORGET
The 60th annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl, featuring the top graduating senior football players from New Hampshire playing against Vermont, will be held Saturday at Dartmouth College in Hanover.
Kickoff at Memorial Field is set for 5:30 p.m.
The 60th Annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl itself is scheduled to be played this coming Saturday at 5:30 p.m. on Dartmouth College’s Memorial Field.
