With Littleton High defeating Maynard for the Mid-Wach C football championship, now is not the time for a let down by Maynard, which must travel to Clinton before the start of postseason.

Maynard (5-2, 4-1 Mid-Wach C) faces a Clinton (3-4, 2-3) team that would love to throw a monkey wrench into the tournament seeding. The Gaels are coming off of a 42-14 loss to St. Peter-Marian.

Kickoff is Friday at 7 p.m.

Littleton secured the league championship with a 30-6 victory over Maynard.

"We couldn’t get anything cooking on offense," Maynard coach Harold Oglivie said. "On defense, we had a lot of missed tackles. They’re things we can fix.

"Littleton played well and they had a good game plan. We just didn’t execute well. We’re going to have to face them again in the playoffs."

Littleton held a 22-6 lead at the half, with quarterback Will Scott (7-for-9, 153 yards) tossing two touchdown passes. On Littleton’s first possession, he completed a 31-yard pass to Brad Klock. Mitch Beaudoin rushed for the conversion.

Scott’s second touchdown pass was a 34-yard pass to Evan Lyons in the right corner of the end zone with 1:38 left in the first half. Lyons was closely covered on the play but jumped up to make the catch. On the conversion, Scott passed to Mitch Crory.

Maynard responded after Littleton’s first touchdown with an eight-play drive that began at its own 42. After Peter Jordan and Johnny Sforza had carries of 14 and 18 yards, respectively, to move the ball inside the 10, Sforza scored from the 1-yard line with 1:48 left in the first quarter.

Littleton added to its lead with 5:27 left in the first half when Luke Elliot drove his way through the middle of the line for a 1-yard touchdown plunge. On the conversion, Bryan Lawton stopped Beaudoin, leaving the score at 14-6.

On the opening series of the second half, Beaudoin scored on a 19-yard run. Austin Lynn rushed for the conversion.

Littleton threatened to add to its lead after Ross Cotnam picked off a pass at the Littleton 30. Littleton reached the Maynard 16 after Scott connected with Lyons on the right sideline for a 38-yard gain. On the next play, however, Maynard’s Sforza recovered a fumble and returned it to the Littleton 21.

Maynard drove to the Littleton 4, with quarterback Tommy Smith carrying the ball for gains of six and seven yards and completing a 7-yard pass to Sam Primiano. On fourth-and-goal, however, Smith’s bid for a touchdown pass fell incomplete.
