NHFR Team of the Week: Souhegan

Souhegan Sabers


Needing a win to extend its season, Souhegan ralled from a one-point halftime deficit to defeat Bow,  39-21, and earn a spot in the Division II playoffs. A loss would have eliminated the Sabers from playoff contention.

Souhegan scored the first two touchdowns in the third quarter to take a 28-15 lead. After Bow trimmed its deficit to 28-21 on an 8-yard touchdown run by Matt Nichols (his second TD run of the game), Souhegan regained control by returning an interception for a touchdown.

The victory extended Souehgan’s winning streak to four games and improved the team’s record to 6-3. It was Bow’s first loss since the season’s opening weekend.

The outcome likely sets up a rematch between the same teams in Saturday’s Division II semifinals. That game will be played in Bow.
