SHREWSBURY – The Shrewsbury High School football team notched its first win of the season, Sept. 25, with a 18-7 victory over Acton Boxborough at home.

Acton Boxborough opened the scoring in the first quarter. But Shrewsbury quickly answered with Thomas Welch rushing in a touchdown from 34 yards out. The Colonials then tacked on two more touchdowns before halftime with Brady Soldo snagging a 46-yard touchdown reception and Owen Keeley darting in for a 6-yard rushing score. 

Concluding their September schedule with a Saturday evening game, the Colonials managed to get into the win column with their victory, moving to a win-loss record of 1-2 after losses to Andover and St. John’s to start the season.
