Friday the 13th and Friday Night football. What a strange mix. Favorites beware.
But the matchup of the weekend is at Wellesley's Hunnewell Field tomorrow afternoon at 2 p.m., when Natick puts its state-best 20-game winning streak on the line against the host Raiders.
It's an SAT Saturday. By 2 p.m., the focus will be on X's and O's and not filling the circles with a No. 2 pencil. Here's four matchups to watch tonight:
Norton at Medfield (Friday 7 p.m.): Will the Warriors take the Fast (Michael) Lane to victory against unbeaten Norton?
Wayland at Concord-Carlisle (Friday 7 p.m.): One week after stopping Lincoln-Sudbury, the unbeaten Warriors need to avoid a letdown against a tough Concord-Carlisle squad.
Waltham at Peabody (Friday 7 p.m.): After a bye week, Hawks plays the first of three Greater Boston League games on the road.
Franklin at Mansfield (Saturday 5 p.m.): Panthers face a monumental task against a Mansfield outfit averaging 35 points per game.
