Teams split on the gridiron

Addison County is the home of two high school football teams and their 2007 seasons are at both ends of the extreme. Coming into this weekend one was undefeated, the other winless. They were both in action last Friday night and both involved in games that wound up 28 - 0. The Middlebury Tigers remained unbeaten by shutting out the Brattleboro Colonels 28 - 0 at home. Sean Harrison scored on runs of six and one yards, while Ben Almquist carried the ball a dozen times for 72 yards and a touchdown for the 6 - 0 Tigers. Zach Robinson had Middleburys other touchdown, a 41 yard run from scrimmage. Brattleboro tailback Colby Kerylow led the Colonels ground efforts, carrying the ball seven times for 67 yards. This game was all Tigers. Their defense registered five forced fumbles and three sacks en-route to the shutout, while their offense racked up 264 yards. They will look to go to 7 - 0 this Friday evening in Burlington. In Bristol the Mount Abraham Eagles are suffering an exact opposite kind of weekend and those woes continued last Friday in Manchester. Quarterback Sam Marvin passed for one touchdown and ran for two more to lead the Burr and Burton Bulldogs to a 28-0 victory over Mount Abraham. The win improves the Bulldogs to 2-4, (2-2 Division III) on the season. Mount Abraham will try for their first win of the year again this Saturday when they host BFA-Fairfax.
