Sal LoBrutto, Wakefield: After Melrose failed to convert a 25-yard field goal attempt on the first possession of overtime, the Warrior senior drilled a 22-yard boot to lift Wakefield to a 17-14 win over its traditional Thanksgiving Day rival.

Michael Shay, Newburyport: In the first half, the quarterback rushed for one score and launched two touchdown passes, each covering more than 55 yards, as the Clippers sailed to a 35-7 win over North Reading.

John Spears, Pingree: The senior tailback from Haverhill was a nightmare for Tilton in every phase of the game. He started with a 66-yard punt return for a touchdown, took a 45-yard run to the house, and hauled in a pair of receptions for scores in a 52-14 win.

Alex Valles, Danvers: With the game deadlocked at 14 in the final minute, Peabody went to the run to set up a field goal attempt. But the Falcon senior corner stripped the ball free and returned the fumble 85 yards for the 20-14 win as time expired.
