Interscholastic Sports ~ Championship Quest Continues for BHS Volleyball and Football

The Bedford Buccaneer

The championship quest continues this week for two Bedford High School interscholastic sports teams.

Volleyball entertains North Middlesex Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in the Bedford High School gymnasium. The Buccaneers dispatched Bishop Stang last week, 3-0, and expect a tougher challenge in the second round. The winner moves to the Division 3 state quarterfinals.

Football, which is already in the Division 4 quarterfinals because only 16 teams qualified, travels to Grafton Friday at 7 p.m.

Bedford, 8-1, opened a lot of eyes last Friday with a 28-21 victory at Tewksbury. The team held the Merrimack Valley Conference power to 230 total yards. Grafton, 9-0, crushed every opponent this season except one.  The Gators needed overtime to defeat Northbridge, 28-20. Northbridge happens to be the hometown of legendary former BHS Coach Armand Sabourin.

The BHS soccer team was eliminated from post-season play Saturday, losing 1-0 at Reading Memorial on a penalty kick with 12 minutes to play in regulation.

The field hockey team had a Cinderella season that ended in disappointment last Thursday with a 3-1 loss to western Massachusetts powerhouse Longmeadow, 3-1.
