By Tom Nappi - Nipmuc comes into the Thanksgiving game with a record of 3 and 7. After the Nipmuc Warriors failed to make the playoffs they wrapped up non-playoff games with a 28-0 win over Burncoat and finished on a high note.
8 and 2 Blackstone Valley Tech advanced to the Central Division 7 Sectional Finals where they fell to Leicester at Grafton High School, live on MyFm 101.3 by a final of 28 to 19. BVT’s only 2 losses both came against Leicester. One all the way back in September and one in the Sectional finals game.
The Pleasant Street of Upton Thanksgiving match-up started back in 2008 and it was Nipmuc taking the first turkey day meeting with BVT 8 to 0. BVT went on to take the next 6 Thanksgiving meetings with Nipmuc until the Warriors broke the BVT streak in 2015 with a 22-20 win and the Nipmuc Warriors also took the 2 games after that.
Last year, the Thanksgiving meeting did not happen because of poor weather and the fact that BVT was heading to the D7 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium which they won 18 to 0 over St. Mary’s of Lynn. Overall since the 2 teams started meeting up for the Turkey Day Battle in 2008, BVT has the upper-hand with 6 wins and 4 losses versus Nipmuc.
Kickoff is scheduled for 10am Thanksgiving Morning, hear the game live on MyFm 101.3!
