BC High vs. Everett
Brockton vs. Dartmouth
Turkey day tidbit: Everett slammed Cambridge, 42-6, to wrap up the Greater Boston League title.
Chelmsford vs. Wayland
Weymouth vs. Marshfield
Turkey day tidbit: Wayland finished in a three-way tie atop the Dual County League with Lincoln-Sudbury and Acton-Boxboro, but gets the chance to defend its Super Bowl crown by winning the league's three-way tie-breaker based on first-half point differential against league opponents... Thanks to Plymouth South's 17-7 upset of Plymouth North, Marshfield and Dennis-Yarmouth finished tied atop the Atlantic Coast League and the Rams advance back to the postseason on the strength of a head-to-head win in Week 10.
Melrose vs. Walpole
Bishop Feehan vs. Mansfield
Turkey day tidbit: Melrose ended a decade-plus hex against Wakefield by gutting out a 15-14 triumph that allowed them to, at worst, share the Middlesex League crown with Woburn, and advance on the strength of the Raiders' head-to-head triumph this season.
Masconomet vs. Gloucester
Seekonk vs. Hingham
Turkey day tidbit: Masconomet emphatically stamped its postseason pass by topping North Andover, 42-14.
Arlington Catholic vs. Swampscott
Abington vs. Medfield

Greater Lawrence vs. Amesbury
East Boston vs. Blue Hills
Turkey day tidbit: Amesbury prevailed in the winner-take-all battle against Newburyport, 17-12, and captured both the Cape Ann Small title and postseason ticket...

West Bridgewater vs. Pope John
Turkey day tidbit: Manchester Essex topped Georgetown, 27-7, to earn a share of the Commonwealth Small title and advances to the postseason based on the head-to-head triumph... West Bridgewater defeated Holbrook, 26-14, to wear the Mayflower Small crown and advance back to the playoffs.
