Globe South: players of the Week; top 10 football teams

HIGH 5

Brandon Gallagher , Bridgewater-Raynham: The senior back churned out 124 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries as the Trojans turned back heavily favored St. John’s Prep, 20-14.

Dan Guarente , Quincy: The senior middle linebacker set the tone for a stellar defensive effort from the Presidents in a 33-6 nonleague romp over Malden Catholic. His sack, on a blitz up the middle, served as an energizer in the second quarter. He also deflected a short pass that was on target for a touchdown pass in the first half and led his team in tackles.

Drew Hadley , Duxbury: On defense, the 5-foot-10, 170-pound senior snagged a momentum-shifting interception with under three minutes on the clock of a 20-13 win over visiting Abington. He also hauled in a pair of touchdown catches — 60 and 29 yards — and snared a two-point conversion.

Conor Moriarty , Walpole: The senior back provided most of the Rebels’ offense with four rushing touchdowns in a 37-15 conquest of Foxborough — including a 49-yard gallop on the Rebels’ first offensive play.

Kyle Wisniewski , Mansfield: In a thrilling 29-26 comeback win over Dunbar (Md.), the senior QB (20 of 32, 255 yards) was 4 for 5 on a go-ahead drive in the fourth quarter, connecting with Michael Hershman on a 40-yard score. He also tossed another TD pass (to Brendan Hill) and rushed for a score.
