A chill is in the air, the hot chocolate and lattes will be flowing, the leaves are starting to turn, and Week 5 of the high school football season is an absolute autumn treat.
Dual County League unbeatens Wayland and Lincoln-Sudbury clash in Sudbury tonight. In Milford, undefeated Marlborough and host Milford (unbeaten in IA) lock horns. Here's a look at five games to watch this weekend:
Lincoln-Sudbury at Wayland (7 p.m. Friday): Defending the run will be the story here. L-S junior Mark Hogan is coming off a school-record 313-yard, 4-touchdown performance. Wayland is averaging 34.5 points per game behind the ground work of QB Ben Sherry and tailback Tony Torres.
Marlborough at Milford (7 p.m. Friday): Get there early and expect to stay until the final horn sounds in this CMass 1A clash. Milford is averaging 30 points per game and Marlborough is at 26.
Framingham at Wellesley (10 a.m. Saturday): The host Raiders are just one game back in the Bay State Conference's Herget race, but Framingham is showing plenty of resiliency this fall.
