Games to watch -- Week 7
The Week 7 schedule is loaded with big league games, including three in Division 3A pitting six of the top seven teams in the division against one another.
Rockland (6-0, 3-0 SSL) at Abington (6-0, 3-0 SSL) Friday 7 p.m. -- The Bulldogs are coming off a huge 9-8 win at previously unbeaten Cohasset, while the Green Wave handed Mashpee just itís second loss of the season. The logjam atop the South Shore League is beginning to break up, and the winner of this game will put itself in prime position to nab a league title and a spot in the D-3A playoffs.
Holliston (5-1, 5-1 TVL) at Norton (6-0, 6-0 TVL) Friday 7 p.m. -- Quarterback Sean Mayo and the Panthers were heavy favorites in the Tri-Valley League until a week four loss to Medway. Meanwhile, the Lancerís 6-0 start is backed by big wins over Medway and Westwood, who are both 5-1 and figure to be the other two teams joining Holliston and Norton in the inaugural TVL playoffs in four weeks.
Cardinal Spellman (6-0, 0-0 CCL) at St. Maryís (6-0, 1-0 CCL) Saturday 7 p.m. -- The Cardinalsí first-team defense is yet to allow a point this season, but the Spartansí come in averaging 40.2 points per game, meaning something has to give. St. Maryís topped 0-6 Arlington Catholic in the first Catholic Central (Large) game of the year last week, and with a full slate of CCL games set to start this weekend, this game means a lot to both teamís playoff aspirations.
