Leicester 35, Uxbridge 22

Friday, Oct. 18, 2013, at Leicester

After last week’s thrashing at West Boylston, Leicester coach Tim Griffiths said his team had a rough week of practice. Senior quarterback Drew Mazzeo made sure the Wolverines won’t have another one next week. Mazzeo’s 20-yard touchdown run with under three minutes left in the fourth quarter snapped a a tie and helped lift Leicester to a 35-22 victory over previously unbeaten Uxbridge. Both teams are 5-1, with Leicester improving to 3-0 in SWCL C, and Uxbridge dropping to 4-1 in the league. “We didn’t really regroup this week,” said Griffiths, whose team trailed, 14-0, after the first quarter. “It took us awhile to get adjusted. I think we learned a lesson. It was gut-check time. I think this will help us out in the long run.”
