Burlington High School football

I've never really cared much about high school football, which is not as big here as it is in other parts of the country. Also, when I went to high school, our team was perpetually bad, as they pretty much always are. However, it has been amusing to follow (from a distance, thanks to the Boston Globe) them this season as they are unbeaten and perfect with two games to go.
On Friday night, a win at home against Woburn, a traditionally tough opponent, will give them the Middlesex League title and a berth in a Division 2 Super Bowl. Of course, the annual Thanksgiving Day game (at Lexington this year) is no gimmee, either. Even with a loss on Friday night, they still would have a chance at the league title.

And yes, that's the Lexington of American Revolutionary War fame, for those of you not from this area.

So here's their schedule and results so far this season:

  • Sept. 8 Billerica W, 28-7

  • Sept. 15 at Arlington W, 27-0

  • Sept. 21 Wakefield W, 23-13

  • Sept. 30 at Winchester W, 42-14

  • Oct. 6 Watertown W, 33-0

  • Oct. 13 Melrose W, 48-7

  • Oct. 21 at Reading W, 19-14

  • Oct. 27 Stoneham W, 57-13

  • Nov. 3 Belmont W, 57-29

  • Nov. 10 Woburn W, 29-21 (OT)

  • 11/11 UPDATE: Burlington High School 2006 Middlesex League Champions!!!!

  • Nov. 23 at Lexington W, 20-7

  • Division 2 Playoff Nov. 28 vs. Natick @ Acton-Boxboro, 7 PM

  • NOTE: Lexington result and playoff schedule updated 11/24
