The Manchester city Turkey Bowl — A relatively recent addition to the Thanksgiving Day lineup, the Manchester city Turkey Bowl is a yearly contest for bragging rights in New Hampshire’s largest city. It’s also the only Thanksgiving Day game in the Granite State. The game has been contested between Central and Trinity more than any other teams, with Central earning the most Turkey Day berths (31 of the 38 contests heading into Thursday’s game between Central and Manchester Memorial).

Central engineered a 48-8 blowout of Trinity in 2016 and a 47-22 rout in 2017. The Little Green were favorites again in 2018 and came through, topping West 34-22.
