Central Catholic at Andover, 10 a.m.
A win by either team means a playoff spot representing the Merrimack Valley Conference Division 1, despite the possibility of a three-way tie in the league.

Central Catholic (3-0, 9-1) has held opponents to 16. 2 points per game. Central's Santino Brancato and D'Andre Drummond-Mayrie have rushed for 11 touchdowns apiece while Andover quarterback CJ Scarpa has thrown for 30 touchdowns. Central leads the series 19-18-1.
