School picks

Saugus over Ipswich — I’d like to apologize for the disappearance of the Hilltop cows. My crew thought it would be funny to leave a fiberglass bovine in the sports editor’s office. It didn’t go over very well.

Reading over Cambridge — I don’t know about everyone else in town, but I handed out acorns last night. Where did those things come from?


Malden over Everett — I meant this week. That’s it, I had the wrong week.

Brighton over Manchester Essex — Forget Walsh and Connolly. Write in Ricardo Edwards for mayor. The kid’s a winner.

Pope John Paul II over Southeastern — You guys need a better accountant.

Winchester over Concord-Carlisle — Maybe PJPII should hire the Sachems’ accountant. A 2-5 record and in the tournament. How does that add up?

Dexter over New Hampton — Bet you didn’t know this was the game of the week.


Leominster over Westboro — The Division 2 South lovefest is probably warranted, but remember, “statewide” means the Blue Devils will be waiting.

Staff picks by Bob Holmes. Last week 3-3 (season 25-23).
