Roger Brown's First & 10: Division I's top seed likely on the line Friday
Not only will it be a meeting between the top two teams in this week's Power Poll, it likely will determine the top seed for the Division I North championship game. It also could determine the No. 1 overall seed for the Division I playoffs, since Concord, Bedford and No. 3 Nashua South are the only unbeaten teams remaining in Division I.
"They like to throw it around," Brown said. "We've worked hard at getting better at pass defense, and hopefully that will show (on Friday)."
THE NEWS isn't good at Milford, where quarterback/defensive back Harrison Urda suffered an ankle injury in the first half of his team's 42-7 triumph over John Stark of Weare on Saturday. Urda will miss the rest of the season.
Urda, a senior, is likely to miss the entire varsity basketball season, but Jones said he may be able to play lacrosse in the spring.
Sophomore Max Urda, Harrison's younger brother, will take over as Milford's starting quarterback. The Spartans (4-2) are still in the mix for a playoff spot in Division II South.
PELHAM (5-0) remained the only unbeaten team in Division III, with a 21-7 triumph against Epping-Newmarket on Saturday. Pelham's Chris Medeiros rushed for a game-high 83 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.
MONADNOCK of Swanzey (6-0) and Plymouth (6-0) each secured the No. 1 seed for their respective conference championship games by winning last weekend. Monadnock will be at home for the Division II West title game, and Plymouth will play host to the Division II North championship game.
