After rushing for five touchdowns in the first half last week in a win over Grafton, senior tailback Dan Flink was even better against Northbridge — rushing 33 times for 245 yards and six touchdowns for Auburn (8-1, 3-1 SWCL A). Northbridge junior quarterback Matt Phelan completed 15 of his 32 passes for 241 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for another score. Northbridge had two chances to win the game in the final moments, but Phelan was picked off by Tim Bryan to end one drive on a play the Rams wanted a pass interference call. Northbridge got the ball back for a final push, but Phelan's pass to Jake Ryan fell incomplete to end the threat.
