It was not the outcome Bob Davis was hoping for in his final game as a high school football coach, but Davis said the South's 35-8 victory over his North team in the 11th Annual Senior Bowl was a memorable experience nonetheless.

Vermont“It was a great experience,” Davis said. “These games are what they are: an exhibition to get the kids out there for [college coaches] to see. But more importantly it's about having fun, and the kids did.”

Davis, who announced that he wouldn't return as North Country's coach next season after the Falcons lost in this year's Division II semifinals, watched the South score on each of its first four second-half possessions to build a 28-0 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Hartford running back Troy Bell rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. Bell scored on runs of 20 and 62 yards.

Mill River’s Adam Mackey opened the scoring with a 1-yard run 5:04 into the third quarter.

Bell’s 20-yard TD run made it 13-0, and then Fair Haven quarterback Robert Coloutti hooked up with Levi Ellis, one of his Fair Haven teammates, for an 18-yard touchdown pass with 2:39 left in the third quarter. Hartford quarterback Tucker Stone connected with Middlebury’s Marshall Hastings for the two-point conversion and a 21-0 lead.

Bell’s 67-yard TD run extended the South's lead to 28-0 34 seconds into the fourth quarter.

The North got on the scoreboard on a 2-yard touchdown run by North Country quarterback Tre Sanville early in the fourth quarter. Sanville hooked up with Winooski’s Devon Rollins for the two-point conversion.

The South capped the scoring on an 18-yard touchdown sprint by Windsor’s Matt Rafus.

“Our offense never found a rhythm,” Davis said. “You have different players coming in on every series so it's not like the regular season.

“I've been running on adrenaline since August. Now the reality [of retirement] is going to settle in.”

Woodstock Union High School football coach Jim McLaughlin won the 200th game of his coaching career Saturday, and it couldn't have come at a better time.

VermontMcLaughlin guided top-seeded Woodstock to a 27-7 victory over third-seeded Windsor in the Division III championship game at Castleton State College. It was the eighth state title McLaughlin's teams have won in his 30 years as a head coach.

Junior fullback Ed Doton did most of the damage for Woodstock, which began the season with back-to-back losses before winning nine in a row. Doton rushed for 255 yards and three touchdowns.

“If you look at it as a puzzle, the pieces really came together for us as the season went along,” McLaughlin said.

Woodstock, which led 14-0 at halftime, held Windsor running back Matt Rafus to 40 yards on 14 carries. Rafus finished the season with 1,881 yards rushing and 27 touchdowns.

Windsor's only touchdown came on a blocked field goal attempt that Ethan Hill returned 75 yards. Windsor completed its season with a 7-4 record.

In Saturday's other championship games top-seeded Hartford beat third-seeded Middlebury 42-6 to win the Division I title; and third-seeded Fair Haven outscored fourth-seeded Burr and Burton 57-34 to win the Division II title.

Hartford 42, Middlebury 6
Hartford dominated on both sides of the ball and won its fourth championship in the last five years.

Miles Latham rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns, and Troy Bell ran for 109 yards to help the Hurricanes completed an unbeaten season (11-0). Hartford scored four second-half touchdowns.

Middlebury (9-2) played without quarterback Dillon Robinson, who was injured in the team's semifinal victory over BFA-St. Albans. Middlebury's only touchdown came when Marshall Hastings returned a kickoff 79 yards for a score.

Hartford, which had a 444-88 edge in net offense, outscored its opponents 508-112 this season.

Many coaches and media members identified North Country as the high school football team to beat in Division II this season. So far, the Falcons have done nothing to prove those people wrong.

VermontNorth Country passed its toughest test of the season and raised its record to 3-0 by defeating Fair Haven 28-26 Saturday.

North Country trailed 26-16 at halftime, but took its first lead when fullback Adam Pothier scored on a 6-yard run with 4:48 to play. The loss dropped Fair Haven's record to 2-1.

“Our expectation were high,” North Country coach Bob Davis said. “We felt this was going to be a very good season. We start mostly seniors, and for a Vermont high school team we are pretty big.”

North Country finished with a 5-4 record and missed the playoffs last season. Tailback Nick LeClair and quarterback Tre Sanville are among the 22 seniors on this year's roster. LeClair and Sanville are both three-year starters. LeClair rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season, and Sanville missed half of his junior season with a knee injury.

The team's first two games ended in lopsided victories: 50-0 over Spaulding and 73-6 over U-32.

“We play option football,” Davis said. “When it gets rolling you can really tear up the yardage.”

LeClair, Sanville and Pothier operate behind a veteran offensive line that includes Adam Fortin, Cody Collins, Riley Simoneau, Ben Bonneau, Jason Webster and Lance Buffi.

North Country hasn't won a state championship since 1997, when it captured the third of three-consecutive titles. North Country hasn't played in a championship game since 2004, when it lost to South Burlington.

Davis will likely know even more about his team following Saturday's game at Rice (2-1), which won last year's Division II championship.

“Things are still evolving [in Division II], but I think Rice is definitely a contender,” Davis said. “They're a spread team and our defense is still evolving so the key will be our ability to establish the run.

“I've heard people mention Fair Haven, Milton and Burr and Burton as contenders. I think at the beginning of the year we we viewed as a strong contender as well. Hopefully they'll keep thinking that way.”
