The New Milford High football team will try on Thanksgiving Day to close the books on a bright note on the 2009 gridiron campaign.

Coach Chuck Lynch's Green Wave will host New Fairfield next Thursday at 10 a.,m. at NMHS in their traditional Turkey Day contest.

New Milford started its season with promise, beating perennial power Brookfield, 20-16, and later added a 20-17 Homecomign win over Immaculate.

The road to November has been otherwise harrowing, however, as the Green Wave has permitted 40 or more points in four if its six most recent game en route to a 2-7 ledger.
