In week number 14 on Saturday November 20th, the Mogadore Wildcats (10-4) played their recent playoff nemesis New Middletown Springfield at Sebo Stadium in Salem and came away 43-27 losers. The loss marked the third straight year that Springfield (13-1) has knocked Mogadore out of the playoffs. The loss also ended the high school playoff season for schools that have Suffield students. Field did not make the playoffs and ended with a 2-8 record. Springfield also didn't get to the playoffs and ended the year with a 1-9 season. Lake made a one-game appearance in the playoffs and lost, finishing 5-5. Mogadore carried the Suffield flag to the Regional finals but lost to finish 10-4 for the year. Win or lose, all the boys played hard all season and provided great times on Friday nights. The cheerleaders, the Royal Guardsmen Marching Band and all others who contributed to the football program deserve a round of applause from the Suffield community. Go Falcons!!
