September 15, 2023 • The Rockets light up the gridiron for a Week 2 matchup against Lincoln Sudbury. On a rare, Thursday night game, the Needham High School Varsity Football team may have been looking for a way to keep things light.

They would not stay there for long, however, as they led the game with a few strong possessions that paid off. The Warriors would fight their way back, but would it be enough? Kristen Connors has the highlights.
