Tigers Shut Out Brattleboro 28-0
By Mike Cameron
Early in the season the Colonels were highly touted. One reason for that was their 1,045 pound offensive line truss consisting of 4 players who checked in at 250, 245, 250, and 300 respectively.
Big numbers indeed but not enough to stop a Hartford High defensive unit that allowed the Colonels just one touchdown while ringing up three of their own a couple of weeks ago.
Funny game, high school football.
On Friday night October 5th, the Colonels were in town to take on the Middlebury Tigers at Doc Collins Field in a 7 p.m. show down.
The Tigers also made a statement the week before at Essex by outplaying the Hornets after trailing early and at the half.
