BRANDON — In a rain-soaked Saturday afternoon game, visiting Mill River upset the Otter Valley football team, 7-0. The Minutemen improved to 4-4 and are the No. 5 seed in the Division III playoffs, which begin this weekend.

The Otters dropped to 6-2 and missed out on a chance to grab the No. 2 seed in Division III. They did earn the No. 3 seed and will host No. 6 Poultney (2-5)  at 1 p.m. on Saturday. The Otters did not face Poultney this fall. 

Next up if the Otters prevail this weekend would almost certainly be a semifinal date the following weekend with No. 2 Windsor (6-1). OV and Windsor also did not square off this fall.

For Mill River this past Saturday, Mason Boudreau capped a 98-yard Minuteman drive with a 47-yard scoring run in the first quarter for the game’s only points. 

OV had promising drives end with an interception, a fumble and a bad snap in the difficult conditions. Isaac Whitney rushed for 100 yards for the Otters.
