at Holliston (8-1), 10 a.m.
With a win, Holliston High seniors Dan Barone, Jake Frechette, and the host Panthers can clinch their third straight Tri-Valley League title and first Large Division crown. A Holliston loss creates a three-way tie, and the champion will be determined by the team that allowed the fewest first-half points against league foes.
►King Philip Regional (8-1)
at Franklin (4-6), 10 a.m.
A win would guarantee the visiting Warriors at least a share of the Hockomock League’s Kelly-Rex Division title. And if North Attleborough beats Attleboro today, it would result in another first for King Philip - a playoff game. But coach Brian Lee says, fittingly, that a postseason berth would be “gravy’’ after a win on Thanksgiving. He just doesn’t want to fall to Franklin for the fifth time in seven years, and have to experience what he calls “tears in your turkey’’ yet again.
at Concord-Carlisle (10-0), 10 a.m.
Concord-Carlisle’s senior running back George Craan and the Patriots continue their quest for the perfect season against Bedford, but there’s even more on the line: the Dual County League’s Small Division crown. A win over Bedford (also 3-0 in the division) would give coach Mike Robichaud’s squad a playoff game against the TVL’s Large Division champs. The Patriots have been an offensive juggernaut, putting up 35.2 points per game, but the defense has also been dominant, including back-to-back shutouts.
►St. John’s High (6-4)
at St. Peter-Marian (7-3), 10:30 a.m.
A three-game losing streak in last month temporarily threw St. John’s, but the Pioneers responded with two straight wins and still have a chance to capture the three-team Central Mass. Conference with a win today in Worcester. Senior Efrain Montalvo is always a threat to break a big play, and freshman receiver Taquar Stewart scored three touchdowns in the team’s last two games. St. Peter-Marian has won three of its last four.
►North Middlesex (2-8)
at Nashoba Regional (10-0), 10 a.m.
Coach Ken Tucker has been involved with the Nashoba program since 1977, but has never had an unbeaten team. Behind the linebacking corps of junior Zack Hume, senior Sam Ashline, and junior Jack Sarnoski, the Chieftains allowed fewer than 7 points per game over their last five games.
