CMass roundup: Leominster prevails over Fitchburg

From a record and talent standpoint, Fitchburg had no business being in the game. But the Red Raiders were like a fighter backed into a corner and forced to come out swinging.

The final outcome before 5,000-plus at Doyle Field will show Leominster prevailed, 38-22. But credit Fitchburg for putting up a battle few thought they would in Thursday’s 130th meeting of this historic rivalry, which began in 1894. The Blue Devils have won the last five meetings and lead the overall series, 62-58-10.
