One interesting possibility is that with league play starting at the beginning of the season, Thanksgiving Day rivals may now meet twice in the season, instead of only once.
Currently in the middle of a 6-2 season is Newburyport’s Thanksgiving rival, Amesbury, whose coach Thom Connors says that he would rather focus on this year, and let the chips fall where they may after that.
“I’m at a point, give me my schedule and tell me where to go,” says Connors. “I’ll prepare my team and be ready to play. We’ll see what happens. I’m more concerned with who we play this week. I’ll worry about that a year from now.”
