The first Westborough High School varsity football home game under the lights in two years left fans beaming.
The Rangers ended Westborough High's Week of Lights with a 21-20 win over visiting Wachusett Regional on Friday night.
The Week of Lights featured Westborough High's teams playing under portable lights funded through donations. The event is alternating years with the school’s Hall of Fame inductions due to the lights’ cost.
Fans were asked to bring non-perishable food donations to the Westborough Food Pantry. Cash donations were accepted as well. The school will use the cash donations to support an organization in the community.
The Mountaineers scored first, in a flash: seconds into the game, for a 7-0 lead.
Wachusett led 14-7 at halftime.
The Rangers tied the score at 14-14 with 7:12 left in the third quarter. Westborough then took the lead with 3:46 left in that quarter.
The Mountaineers cut the lead to 1 with a touchdown run with 1:22 left in the game, 21-20.
However, the Rangers stopped Wachusett's two-point conversion attempt.
