Game to watch

Wakefield (6-0) at Burlington (5-1), 7 p.m. Friday: This game may end up determining the winner of Middlesex League’s Freedom Division unless Stoneham (6-0) goes undefeated. After allowing just 7 points against Belmont three weeks ago, Wakefield’s defense did not give up a point in its next two games. But the Warriors will certainly be tested when they take on Burlington and its dangerous backfield duo of Marcus Odiah (12 touchdowns) and Anthony Cruz (11 touchdowns). That said, Burlington has allowed a lofty 20.8 points per game, and Wakefield junior quarterback Mike Miller (10 touchdowns) has the ability to make this game close.
