Marlborough – The bleachers and sidelines were packed for Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School’s first game on their new football field, as they defeated Hudson High School 42-14 to open the season, in a game played Sept. 7.
The $2.4 million renovation included a new synthetic turf field, track, and bleachers, and replaced a grass field and cinder track that was built in the early 1970s.
Assabet’s Justin Phillips threw two touchdown passes, one to Marc Juarez and one to Ryan Taylor, and ran in a third in the victory. Juarez had a 71-yard touchdown run in the first quarter as well. D.J. Doucette and William Soto also rushed for touchdowns.
Hudson’s touchdowns were scored by Andrew DiBattista and Tony Francolini.
