In the Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021, edition of Bill Murphy’s column, “Sitting Here Wondering,” it was reported that the football teams of Bellows Falls and Springfield will take to the field for the 105th time in the regular season, when in reality it will be the 106th meeting between the two Vermont rivals. Furthermore, Bellows Falls holds a 57-45-3 advantage in the old storied rivalry which is the second longest in Vermont history. The Terriers will be looking for their 11th straight win in the series. Under two coaches — Bis Bisbee and Bob Lockerby — the Terriers have defeated the Cosmos 30 times in the 41 games since and including the 1978 season. Before that stretch Springfield was in control of the series 34-27-3. Prior to the recent 10 consecutive victories by Bellows Falls, the Terriers held a slim 47-45-3 advantage.
