Nashoba 28, Marlborough 14

Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, at Bolton

Eli Williams scored on a 29-yard run, while John Ojukwu added a 21-yard score in the fourth quarter as top-ranked Nashoba rallied for the final 14 points in the second half to get past visiting Marlboro. Mike Yates scored twice for the Panthers (1-4, 1-1 Mid-Wach B). Andrew Cross had a 15-yard score and Ojukwu also added a 65-yard score as the teams were tied, 7-7, at halftime and 14-14 in the third quarter. "We made some adjustments at halftime - we haven't been in a close game all year," Nashoba coach Ken Tucker said. "Last week (Holy Name) was a tough battle but we haven't been in a game this close. We haven't had adversity come our way. But we did in this game and it will help us. Down the line, I think it will do us a lot of good."
