In today's title game for the Central Mass. Division 1 high school football championship Leominster gained the early momentum with a goal-line stand on defense. They were able to hold St. John's on two consecutive downs from the five-yard line and later took a 6-0 lead. The first quarter ended with Leominster leading 6-0.

They scored on a play action rollout with six seconds remaining in the half, and converted the two-point conversion to enter half leading 14-0.
Leominster scored again late in the third to make it 21-0. St. John's finally got on the board with a touchdown in the fourth, but couldn't amount much more against a stout Leominster defense. The final score of the game was 21-6. The now 10-3 Leominster Blue Devils are Central Mass. DI champs.
