The pick: Amesbury 22, Winthrop 7
Bedford at Pentucket, 1:30
It just feels like Pentucket’s year, with four wins by 10 points or less. D.J. Engelke and Andrew Noyes have stepped up in the last month to lead the team’s rushing attack. It seems crazy that Jeff Porter had only 17 total yards last week, and the Sachems still won a playoff game. Porter was a lock for 100-plus yards in the opening month of the season.
The pick: Pentucket 20, Bedford 14
Georgetown at Greater Lawrence Tech, 2
Georgetown quarterback Pat Bjork accounted for over 300 total yards and three touchdowns last week. The Royals, winners of two straight, are making their case that they could have success with a Division 5 schedule.
The pick: Georgetown 27, Greater Lawrence Tech 20
Hamden Hill vs. Governor’s Academy, 1
This is the reward the Govs get after claiming at least a share of the Independent School League title for three years in a row.
The pick: Govs 30, Hamden Hill 10
Last week’s record: 3-2
Overall record: 29-14
