Central Catholic over Xaverian: The difference in this one is one team got lucky on Thanksgiving, one team didn’t. I don’t know how you tell seniors they can’t play on Thanksgiving against their rival, but I’m wondering how guys like junior Joe Gaziano will feel next fall. Have opinions changed?
St. John’s (S) over Mansfield: See above.
Plymouth South over Tewksbury: Still can’t believe that you guys had your famed Thanksgiving parade with a float for every person on the planet — except Dylan Oxsen and Scott Fry. No float for these two? The best runner and the smartest coach in the state? No float?
Dennis-Yarmouth over Doherty: The key here is the lighthouse and bridge in the North end zone that makes the Dolphins feel like they’ve never left the Cape.
Bishop Fenwick over Northbridge: As a public service to my friends in Whitinsville, a word of warning. Fenwick has this back named Rufus. You may have heard of him. He’s bigger than most of your linemen, faster than most of your backs. If gang-tackling means including your fans, you may slow him down.
Cohasset over Littleton: Too bad this one starts so early, because it could be the best game of the day. I like Cohasset’s defense and the fact the Skippers’ only loss was to Abington. And I’m a huge Kate Bosworth fan.
Last week: 5-13. Season: 42-52.
