6th Thanksgiving meeting

10 a.m., Alumni Field, Barre

Radio: None.

Last year: West Boylston, 20-13.

Series: West Boylston, 3-2.

The Lions have proven to be a strong team in the ultra-competitive Division 3 West. "We are looking forward to a big game versus Quabbin," West Boylston coach Dave Tinglof said. "The last time we played up there two years ago, they really took it to us. We have not beaten them up there in six years in this young rivalry, so we need to get a win in Quabbin to stop that Thanksgiving Day curse." In last year's game, running back Paul Lindberg busted a 76-yard touchdown, which proved to be go-ahead score in a 20-13 win. He carried 15 times for 123 yards. Lindberg teams with senior quarterback Shane Sampson to lead a solid offensive unit. For Quabbin, junior quarterback Tyler Przypek has put together a fine season. His main threat in the passing game is sure-handed senior wide receiver Matt Jurczyk. "(Jurczyk's) been pretty steady, kind of our go-to guy," Quabbin coach Tim Griffiths said. Defensively, senior cornerback Garrett Reilly and senior linebackers Alec Goodale and Sam Frost have led the Panthers.

Jim's take: West Boylston caps another strong year with a win.
