Brandon Gallagher , Bridgewater-Raynham: The junior back quickly put last week’s defeat in the rear-view mirror, tearing through New Bedford for 232 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries in a 32-0 win.
Bobby Maimaron , Duxbury: After starting QB Sean McCarthy was sidelined four minutes into Saturday’s game against Silver Lake with an ankle injury, the freshman stepped in and threw two touchdown passes (22 and 7 yards) in the Dragons’ 29-0 road shutout.
Connor Moriarty , Walpole: Following a one-sided defeat to Needham last week, the Rebels bounced back on the shoulders of their senior running back, who ran for two touchdowns (19 and 4 yards), in addition to hauling in a 32-yard scoring pass in a 49-20 win over Dedham.
Dylan Oxsen , Plymouth South: The senior back went to the sidelines twice with an injury (ankle) during his team’s 21-14 win Plymouth North. But he finished the night with 150 yards on 20 carries, including a touchdown and an 88-yard pick-six.
Kyle Wisnieski , Mansfield: Connecting on 11 of his 16 passes, the quarterback fired a pair of touchdown passes to fellow senior Michael Hershman, a 28-yarder in the second quarter and a 23-yarder in the fourth — on a third-and-19 call — as the Hornets crushed North Attleborough, 35-14.
