It was all about bending but not breaking for the Sanborn High of Kingston on Saturday in its 14-13 victory over host Milford. Brian McGough intercepted a Milford pass with 22 seconds left to help Sanborn (3-3) escape after Milford (2-5) rallied from a 14-0 deficit in the second half.

McGough's pick was part of a strong effort by the defense to save Sanborn's stalling offense down the stretch. The key stop proved to be a blocked extra point following Maverick Dodier's touchdown for Milford with five minutes to play, keeping Sanborn ahead. The Indians also turned the Spartans back on fourth down following a 76-yard drive down to Sanborn's 6-yard line with 9:37 to play and later forced a turnover on downs with 2:19 left.

The Indians got their first-half offense on rushing TDs from McGough and Chris Hanna. Milford's other touchdown came on a botched Sanborn lateral that was returned 15 yards by the Spartans.

Windham 45, Gilford/Belmont 8: In Gilford, Cody Potter needed just five completions to amass 171 yards and three touchdowns while leading Windham to the rout. Potter threw touchdowns of 60 and 19 yards to Tommy Emrick and hit Jake Aleksa for a 60-yard TD. Emrick also added 107 yards and a touchdown on the ground while taking just six carries. Aleksa also had a rushing touchdown as did Royce Belsky. The Jaguars led 28-0 at halftime. Gilford is 1-6.

Bedford 42, Dover 7: In Bedford, a 28-point first half helped leave no doubt for Bedford against Dover. The Bulldogs shared the scoring duties as Cole Glennon, Noah Chaberek, Ryan Tosacano and Tom Norfleet all scored within Bedford's offense. Lucien Mumpini ran back an interception for a touchdown for Bedford. The victory sets the Bulldogs (5-3) up for a wiiner-take-all battle with Manchester Central next week for the final playoff spot in the Division I North/East bracket.

Campbell 51, Winnisquam 0: In Tilton, it took just two quarters for the Cougars (7-0) to score all their points as they entered halftime with the 51-0 lead. Keegan Mills (119 yards) and Ryan Yanuszewski (81 yards) each ran for a pair of touchdowns.

Also scoring on the ground were Nick Boucher (103 yards), Connor Sweeney and Garrett Walker. Winnisquam fell to 1-6.
