Division 3-4 roundup: Bedford nips Concord-Carlisle

For the second time this season, a PAT by Stephane Todeschini was a game-winner for Bedford, which beat visiting Concord-Carlisle, 35-34, in overtime Thursday.

On Oct. 5 against Somerville, a kick by the French exchange student was the difference in a 42-41 overtime win.

The Patriots got the ball in the first overtime and Shane McCloskey ran for a 6-yard TD. The 2-point rush failed, leaving the door open for Bedford (8-3, 3-1 Dual County Small). Christian Boivin ran it in from 2 yards to tie it and Todeschini’s kick gave the Buccaneers a win.


McCloskey had all five TDs for the Patriots (4-7, 2-2).
