The Medford Mustang football team has finished its regular season and is competing in a couple of additional games before facing Malden for the 130th time on Thanksgiving.
The Mustangs host former Greater Boston League rival Cambridge at Hormel Stadium on Friday, November 3. Kickoff is one hour earlier than normal at 6 pm.
Medford might have one more game to go before preparing for its historic match-up with Malden. The game won’t be announced until early next week.
On Wednesday, November 8 the Medford Historical Society is hosting “High School Pigskin Rivalry: Medford & Malden 130th Thanksgiving.” The coaches (Jason Nascimento from Medford and Bill Manchester from Malden), along with players and alumni from both teams, will explain why this game is the most important one of the season— for the players, the coaches, the alumni and fans. Christopher Hurley, sports editor for the Medford Transcript, and David Fedo, Vice President of the Medford Historical Society & Museum, will co-lead the panel. Malden currently leads the series by 64-55-10. Come to hear the pre-game strategies, as both sides in the competition discuss the historical tradition which has made this athletic contest so special!
The annual Thanksgiving game is taking place this year at Hormel Stadium in Medford at 10 am.
