Mill River Hosts Woodstock in D-3 Showdown

Posted: Updated:
NORTH CLARENDON, Vt. -

Week 5 of the Friday Football Frenzy is about to kick off, and the biggest game of the night will be in Division Three. 

 A pair of unbeatens are set to do battle in North Clarendon when Mill River faces Woodstock. The Wasps are one of the traditional powers in the division, and this year has been no different. Woodstock is 4-0 and sits number one in the QPR points on the strength of victories over tough teams like U-32 and Otter Valley.  But given the recent history between the two programs, the Wasps know not to take the Minutemen likely.

"They have a good line and they have a good quarterback," said Woodstock running back Bill Wood. "He knows how to read a defense pretty well and if he gets outside of us he'll have a pretty good chance of scoring.  We just can't let guys get outside of our D-line."

Mill River is also 4-0 and ranks third, but this will unquestionably be their biggest test to date. The key to this one will be whether Mill River's passing game can keep up with Woodstock's strong ground attack.

"We just have to worry about stopping the run," said Mill River quarterback Michael Morgan. "They don't pass the ball as much as we do or as much as other teams do.  They like to run the ball, so we just have to worry about that."

"We respect them as a team," said Woodstock quarterback Luc Issa. "They have a really great quarterback, so we're just going to try our best to stop him and do what we do best, which is running the ball, as usual."

That game kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday night at Mill River.
