Dartmouth 35, Fairhaven 20
When it's your day, it's your day. Dartmouth's Justin Mello already had three rushing touchdowns when the Indians lined up on second and 4 from the Fairhaven 29 with about two minutes left in the first half. He went on a slant route over the middle, but Sean Sylvia's throw was a little behind him.
Duxbury 28, Marshfield 0
After accomplishing its main goal of getting into the Division 2A playoffs, Duxbury had one more task to complete.
Walpole 20, Weymouth 6
In Walpole's final tuneup before the Division 2 playoffs, Sonny Mastromatteo and Ryan Izzo ensured that the Rebels would go into the postseason on a winning note.
Apponequet 35, Old Rochester 14
Some teams like to take it one game at a time. Not Apponequet. The Lakers took a long view.

Swampscott and Marblehead have a history of using Thanksgiving to end each other's playoff hopes.
South Boston 34, East Boston 6
