Quarterback Jake Taparausky rushed to the left for a 10-yard touchdown on the first play of overtime to give the undefeated Spartans (5-0, 4-0 SWCLC) a thrilling road win over the Woolies (1-4, 1-4). Taparausky rushed for a team-high 87 yards on 12 carries including a 1-yard TD in the first quarter - Taparausky also completed 13 of 22 passes for 100 yards with a 9-yard TD pass to Joshua Callinan in the fourth quarter and a two-point conversion pass to Callinan in the second quarter. Taparausky spread the ball around, completing passes to six receivers, with Mitchell Page hauling in a team-high 5 passes for 55 yards. Ross Sudar carried the load for the Millbury offense, scoring four touchdowns and adding a pair of conversion runs. His final TD run pulled the Woolies within two points, 28-26, in the fourth quarter and his conversion run forced overtime. Trailing by a point after one quarter, Uxbridge put together a 15-play, 66-yard drive that ate up almost six minutes and culminated with a 1-yard touchdown run by Jared Stewart. Jon Sylvia punched it in from 3 yards out in the second quarter, with Cam Stewart's second extra points giving the Spartans a 22-8 lead. Sudar had touchdown runs of 8 and 35 yards to pull Millbury within two points, 22-20, in the third quarter. Uxbridge had a chance to go up two scores when Taparausky found Callinan in the end zone late in the third quarter, but the Woolies blocked the extra point. The Spartans defense stepped up when it mattered, with Page, Tom Flagg, Stewart and Taparausky each recording a tackle as Uxbridge did not allow a yard on Millbury's overtime possession.
