Bedford coach Jack Belcher is used to preparing for Concord-Carlisle.
In years past it’s been during the month of November, with more than a week to prepare for the annual Thanksgiving morning game.
This year things are a little different.
The two sides meet under the lights Friday night, in the middle of the regular season, a byproduct of the MIAA’s new playoff system, as the Buccaneers host Concord-Carlisle on their brand new turf field in a battle of unbeaten Dual County League rivals.
The pair will also meet on Thanksgiving, but the outcome of that matchup will have no effect on the playoffs.
