Milton’s varsity football team capped off the storied Milton-Nobles rivalry weekend with a 24–13 win, finishing the season with a record of 6–2. That success earned the team the number two spot in the Independent School League and a NEPSAC Bowl bid. Solid defense and an excellent ground game were key components in the Mustangs’ victory over the Bulldogs.
The bowl game invitation was also enabled by a come-from-behind victory over perennial powerhouse Governor’s a week earlier. Trailing 14–13, with time running out, Milton drove the ball down the field to earn the 20–14 victory.
The Mustangs will travel to Avon Old Farms on Saturday, November 21, to face Brunswick in a NEPSAC Bowl game at 1 p.m. The winner will be crowned New England Prep Champions.
