The Maine High School Football website is ready for the 2022 high school football season. The site has posted every team’s schedule that you can see at the link below.
The regular season opens on September 2. This year’s schedule looks a little different because the state’s biggest teams can now officially play games against opponents from New Hampshire.
Earlier this month, In attempt to help the eight largest high school football programs avoid bye weeks, the Maine Principals’ Association approved a plan that allows countable cross-border games against New Hampshire high school football teams. The eight teams — Bangor, Bonny Eagle, Edward Little, Lewiston, Oxford Hills, Sanford, Scarborough and Thornton Academy — are members of Class A, the state’s largest classification.
Five of those eight teams will play interstate games. Below is a list of those matchups:
- Bonny Eagle vs. Merrimack (New Hampshire)
- Edward Little vs. Spaulding (New Hamsphire)
- Oxford Hills vs. Portsmouth (New Hampshire)
- Sanford vs. Dover (New Hampshire)
- Thornton Academy vs. Bedford (New Hampshire)
