High school football: Week 8 picks by Bob Holmes

This week’s picks from the Globe’s High School editor:

Walpole over Natick — Four Advils. That’s how many it took to get rid of the headache after reading Bay State Conference tiebreakers.

Lincoln-Sudbury over Westford — The Grey Ghosts say they have a chance here? Come on guys, no lying. We can see right through you.


Reading over Woburn — One team gets to dress up as a bridesmaid next Thursday. Which reminds me of the time my mother dressed me up as a Ritz Cracker box. Don’t ask.

Salem over Peabody — What’s the most important subject a Witch learns in school? Spelling . . . as in w-i-n.

Malden over Everett — Why the surprise? Both teams are 1-1 against Catholic Conference opponents this fall.

Milton Academy over Governor’s Academy — I can feel it coming. This is the week Justin Yoon kicks a 50-yard field goal.

Staff picks by Bob Holmes. Last week 3-3 (season, 22-20).
