Saturday’s Division II championship game between top-seeded Timberlane (11-0) and third-seeded Milford (8-2) will be the second time the teams have met this season. Timberlane earned a 21-14 victory in Plaistow on Oct. 29.
The key play in that game came with just over five minutes remaining in the third quarter and Milford leading 14-7. The Spartans elected to keep the offense on the field for a fourth-and-one play at the Timberlane 40, but were stopped short of the first down.
Timberlane tied the game on its ensuing possession when senior running back Dominic Pallaria scored on a fourth-down play from the Milford 2 and Harrison Bloom added the PAT.
Following an interception, Timberlane scored the go-ahead TD when Pallaria found the end zone from 17 yards away with 7:12 to play.
“The head coach called a bad play,” Milford coach Keith Jones said. “If we go down and score we make it 21-7. Instead, they stopped us, momentum swung and they went down and scored.
“We scored on the final play of the first half so we had the momentum going in and we got the ball to start the second half. We just didn’t play very well after halftime and after that fourth down the onslaught was on.”
