Milford Football Wraps Up Season on Thanksgiving Day

The Milford High football team will play its final game of the season next Thursday morning, November 28, as the Scarlet Hawks welcome Holy Name of Worcester for a Thanksgiving Day match-up.
Milford enters the game with a 2-8 record under first-year head coach Joe Todd. The Hawks dropped their first three games of the season before earning a thrilling week four win over Canton 38-35. Milford kicked a field goal in the closing seconds to seal its first victory.
After a 1-6 run through the regular season, MHS did not qualify for a spot in the playoffs and, under the new post-season format, moved into the non-playoff bracket. Milford picked up its first home win of the season with a 7-0 shutout of Norwood back on November 1. Sophomore Zach Lanzetta connected with Pete Schuler on a 55-yard touchdown pass for the game's only score. Senior captain Mike Branch blocked a field goal try in the second half to preserve the shutout.
In the last two games, Milford has put up two of its better offensive outputs, both in losing efforts. The Hawks were on the wrong end of a 42-34 shootout against North Quincy and, despite a strong comeback effort, fell 34-22 against Bishop Feehan.
Holy Name comes into Thursday's game, the first every meeting between the two schools on Thanksgiving, with a 5-5 record. The Naps are riding a three-game winning streak, having beaten Wachusett, Algonquin, and Worcester North over the past three weeks. They are led by senior Jeff Holland, who has rushed for more than 850 yards on the year. A dual threat, Holland is also among the Central Mass leaders in tackles with 74 headed into Thursday's game.
Kick-off for the Turkey Day showdown is set for 10:15 a.m. at Milford High.
