In Week 3, we have the ISL opening up its season and lots of games to watch, despite the downpour of rain in the region. So I'm going to split from my normal "10 games to watch" and instead give you five to choose from. I'll come back with another five tomorrow morning.
1. Belmont Hill at BB&N, 4 p.m. Its the season opener for ISL games and we get a chance to see powerhouse BB&N go to work right away. Chris Coady, who played running back for the Knights last year, will be the teams QB. Add in a couple of stud linemen in Eric Olson and Dan Connaughton, and theyve got a great team to watch.
My pick: BB&N
2. Lawrence (2-0) at Lowell (1-1), 7 p.m. Two great athletes in this matchup, with Lawrences Kelvin Severino and Lowells R.J. Noel.
My pick: Lawrence
3. BC High (1-1) at Chelmsford (2-0), 7 p.m. BC High lost last week against New Jersey power DePaul Catholic, but that doesnt mean they lack for power. Seniors Preston Cooper and Gordon McLeod provide the scoring punch. For Chelmsford, quarterback Colby Emanouil keeps the Lions offensive engine running smooth and Tim Joy anchors one of the states top defenses.
My pick: BC High
4. Weymouth (2-0) at Gloucester (0-2), 7 p.m. Gloucesters on a new streak already, having lost two games in a row after reeling of 26 straight. Weymouth features one of the top receivers in the state in Khary Bailey-Smith.
My pick: Weymouth
5. Beverly (1-1) at Lynn English (2-0), 7 p.m. Dom Abate and Brendan Flaherty are the scoring options for Beverly while Lynn English will rely upon deep threat receiver Malcolm Brown-Simpson and running back P.J. Dorsey. Jermaine Kelley orchestrates Lynn Englishs offense at QB.
My pick: Lynn English
