    Craig Larson’s Week 4 high school football picks

    Belmont Hill over BB&N — What a dazzling opener for the Mike Piazza/Jake Bobo aerial show for the Hill. Knights can not match that firepower.

    Central Catholic over Billerica — Bret Edwards and second-ranked Raiders survived a scare from Methuen thanks to a 20-point flurry in fourth quarter. Central D will not need a bailout this week.

    King Philip over Mansfield — Brendan Lydon’s fourth-quarter keeper was the difference for KP a year ago. With home field, Brian Lee’s Warriors are the pick again.


    Medfield over Hopkinton — Mitchell Gonser-piloted attack averaging 44.0 points per game will score enough against a stout Hiller D.

    St. Mary’s over Cardinal Spellman — The 50.7 points per game is eye-popping. So too is the elusive Calvin Johnson, as a passer (5 TDs), rusher (7 TDs), and return whiz.

    Swampscott over Salem — No team in EMass has a better scoring differential (39.3) than the Big Blue. And that number will play well on the road in NEC South showdown.

    Tech Boston over Brighton — Passionate, determined Tweet received loud and clear, Bears! And no doubt, that 24-point first quarter from last fall still stings.

    Governor’s over Milton Academy — Michael Silva (31 carries, 395 yards, 5 TDs) punished the Govs last November. He’s now at Harvard. QB Jared Dupere and the hosts prevail in Byfield.


    Last week: 6-2; Season: 18-8.
