The MDI Trojans defeated the Waterville Purple Panthers Friday, October 18th 42-35 in a thrilling game. With the back to back wins over Waterville and Foxcroft Academy, MDI has the two biggest consecutive wins in the program's history since 2008 when MDI went to the Eastern Maine finals!

I spoke with MDI Head Football Coach Mark Shields this morning, and he reflected on the game, how MDI was able to defeat Waterville, the keys to victory, and the need for fans to travel to Old Town for the final game of the season against the Coyotes this Friday, October 25th.
