COLCHESTER — The top-seeded, undefeated Colchester High School football team scored on two of its first three possessions Friday and held on for a 12-7 victory over visiting No. 4 Middlebury in a Division II semifinal marked by tough defense.
The 10-0 Lakers moved on to this weekend’s D-II final vs. No. 3 Champlain Valley, which defeated No. 2 Mount Mansfield, 21-14, also on Friday.
The Tigers, a team with just nine seniors and featuring many sophomores in key roles, finished the season at 7-3. They lost twice to the Lakers, and once to CVU.
