North: Five games to watch

St. John’s Prep (8-1) at Xaverian (4-6), 10:15 a.m.

Can Prep’s one-two backfield punch of Johnathan Thomas and Alex Moore carve up a Hawk defense boasting 6-foot-2, 285-pound University of Michigan recruit Maurice Hurst and 6-2, 305-pound Ray Gobbi? Xaverian has won its last three games after a 1-6 start. Prep has not lost since Week 3 against Everett.
