For those who can't make it on Thanksgiving morning, one of the oldest rivalries in the history of US high school football will be available to watch live online thanks to a first-ever webcast of the game.

The 125th Malden-Medford game will be played at Macdonald Stadium in Malden at 10 a.m.

Made in Medford, the local segment of Comcast’s Project Open Voice, will be streaming the game live on Medford High School’s channel, www.madeinmedford.com/medfordhs.

Part of Comcast’s Project Open Voice, Made in Medford is dedicated to exploring new and innovative ways that local programming – including public, educational, and government media – can be made available in a community.  The Made in Medford website and video-on-demand component are designed to support the interaction between residents and visitors, help connect them with what’s going on around Medford, and show them where to find additional content on a given subject. 

The website will also archive the game on the channel for future viewing and feature videotaped highlights of several of Medford High School’s traditional pre-game events, including:

•Tuesday Nov. 20:  Annual pre-game lunch with Medford and Malden football coaches, captains, athletic directors, principals, and all seniors from both teams.  The event – which started in 2008 – will be larger than usual this year and held at John Brewer’s Tavern in Medford, which also features a mural commemorating the historic rivalry.

•Wednesday, Nov. 21: Annual Pep rally in the Medford High gym

The Annual Headmaster's Dinner with the Medford football team, cheerleaders, coaches, and parent boosters also will be held on Wednesday but won’t be videotaped.

Over the years, Medford has won the matchup 54 times, with Malden capturing 60 victories, and 10 games ended as ties.  Medford last won in 2006.

For more information, contact David Lubell, Online Community Coordinator for Made in Medford, at 617-794-7274 or david@madeinmedford.com.
