The Woburn High School football team came storming out of the gates. On Friday night, the Tanners hope to keep that streak going.
Here are five things to know about Friday's game as Woburn hits the turf in hopes of improving to 4-0.
1. Who, What, When and Where: The Tanners welcome Lexington to town on Friday night on the home turf of Woburn High School. Kick off comes at 7 p.m. under the lights in the team's final scheduled home game of the year.
2. Scouting the Opponent: Lexington has had some early season struggles, though the Minutemen are coming off a 42-27 win over Belmont. Before that game, Lexington fell to Wakefield, 46-25, to start the year and followed that up with a 35-18 defeat at Concord-Carlisle.
3. Unbeaten Start: Woburn head coach Rocky Nelson said his team preached getting off to a fast start throughout the offseason. They've done just that. The Tanners came back to beat Billerica, 19-12, to open the year, thumped Burlington, 27-7, in their second game and won 27-21 over Winchester when the Sachems fumbled the ball at the goal line as time expired.
4. Numbers Game: So far this season, the Tanners are scoring an average of 24 points per game while allowing 13 per game. Lexington, meanwhile, has put up 28 points per game while allowing its opponent to score 36 points per contest.
5. What's Next: Following Friday's game, Woburn has no more home contests remaining. The team will close out on the road against Belmont, Arlington, Reading and Winchester before they hope to be qualified for postseason play. They would take a big step towards that goal with another win Friday night.
