MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School football team reached Saturday’s Division I final vs. South Burlington by winning 10 straight games, all by margins of at least 22 points.

Game by game, the Tigers’ results in the 2013 campaign were:

•  Aug. 30: At MUHS 35, Essex 7.

•  Sept. 6: At MUHS 23, Hartford 0.

•  Sept. 13: MUHS 28, at Colchester 6.

•  Sept. 20: MUHS 35, at Rutland 0.

•  Sept. 27. At MUHS 42, Champlain Valley 7.

•  Oct. 4: MUHS 48, at Mt. Anthony 6.

•  Oct. 18: MUHS 41, at Burlington 6.

•  Oct. 25: Quarterfinal: MUHS 48, St. J. 6.

The Tiger's victory Nov. 9 was its ninth state title since 1970 and the 13th in program history. The Tigers had previously won three Division I championships in the past two decades, and before then won five D-II crowns in a six-year span between 1975 and 1980.

Before 1970, the year when the Vermont Principals’ Association starts tracking championship and scores of finals, the Tiger program won at least another four titles, according to Friends of Middlebury Football official Leonard Barrett and MUHS activities director Sean Farrell. They confirmed that in 1961 the Tigers won the Class I title, and also won three straight D-II championships from 1967 to 1969.

Since 1970, in the D-I title game the Tigers:

• Defeated Hartford in 2002, 3-0.

• Defeated Hartford in 1995, 14-13.

• Defeated Essex in 1993, 10-0.
