Fitchburg to Host Wachusett in GoLocal High School Football Game of the Week

Friday, September 21, 2012

 

Wachusett at Fitchburg: Kickoff at 7 pm Friday

Why is it a must-see game?

Both of these teams are hungry for wins after facing brutal early-season schedules. Wachusett (1-1) comes in riding high after a 35-0 beat down of Algonquin, but the Mountaineers suffered a season-opening 44-14 defeat at the hands of defending Division II Central Mass Champion Nashoba.

Fitchburg also fell to Nashoba, but suffered an even greater blow when senior cornerback Trey Mahone broke his neck in the game against the Chieftains. Mahone is, thankfully, expected to make a full recovery.

With a combined 1-3 record between them, each of these teams needs a win badly to get their seasons back on track.

Wachusett Offense vs Fitchburg Defense

Running back Trevor MacNeil powers Wachusett's Wing-T attack, and leads the Mountaineers with 130 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. It will be interesting to see if the Wachusett offensive line can move back the physical Fitchburg front, led by star defensive tackle Kelvin Rivera.

Fitchburg Offense vs Wachusett Defense

The Red Raiders like the spread the ball around through the air, but lost last season's receiving leader Quinton Perkins. It has clearly hurt the Fitchburg offense, which has only scored a single touchdown in its first two games. But, this week does bring them a young Wachusett defense that returns only three starters from a season ago. Can the Red Raiders right the ship this week?

Be sure to check back after the game for full highlights in the sports section.
