The pick: Pentucket 21, Triton 16
Georgetown (2-8) at Manchester Essex (5-5)
The key for Georgetown will be stopping Manchester Essex running back Chris Dumont, who has 964 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on the season. The Royals certainly enjoyed their Division 5 non-playoff schedule, but the hungry Hornets are coming off two straight losses in the Division 5 playoffs. True story: The first Thanksgiving game I ever covered was a Manchester Essex vs. Georgetown showdown in 2005.
The pick: Manchester Essex 28, Georgetown 10
Last week’s record: 2-3
Overall record: 31-17
