Abbi Bamgbose returned a fumbled pitch 56 yards for a score with just over seven minutes left in the game to rally the host Red Raiders to their first win of the season. Fitchburg senior quarterback Connor Lemieux, playing in just his second game since returning from an injury suffered in the preseason, extended a Fitchburg drive with an 11-yard gain on third-and-long to bring the ball to the Milford 5-yard line. Lemieux scored on a 1-yard keeper two plays later to tie the game, 14-14. Lemieux connected with Elijak Kukta on a 15-yard score to give the Red Raiders an early 7-0 lead. Milford’s Mike Tarolli caught a 19-yard touchdown pass from Eric Overdahl and Thomas Hytholt rushed for a 42-yard touchdown for the Scarlet Hawks.
