Massachusetts High School To Play 900th Football Game This Friday – First Game Was In 1927!
The Chelmsford Lions played their first high school football game in 1927. 95 years later, this Friday night, they play their 900th game. Unfortunately the game will not be held at home but surely the town will make the trip to Lowell to cheer their program on during this momentous game.
Chelmsford’s 900th game will be played this Friday night at 7 p.m. at Cawley Stadium versus Lowell High School.
In 1927, when Chelmsford played their first football game, a loaf of bread was 12 cents. Now it’ll set you back $42.12. I kid… inflation joke. Ugg.
Anyway, to summarize: Congratulations Chelmsford High School!! Here’s to 900 more!
