The Marian High football team grounded visiting Pope John in Saturday's Catholic Central Small showdown at Bowditch Field. With Andrew Supple (16 carries, 146 yards) and C.J. Oquendo (12-105) running wild, the Mustangs (9-0) captured the league title and clinched their first playoff spot since 2002 with a 34-13 victory.
Here's a wrap on our four other must-watch games this weekend.

St. John's at Wachusett: Pioneers locked up CMass Division 1 runner-up spot with 9-6 win over Wachusett.
Assabet at Worcester South: South denied Assabet back-to-back trips to the Division 3A Bowl with 25-0 win, avenging last year's loss to Aztecs.
