Who Plays Where And So Forth
First off... big ups to Barnstable Girls Volleyball. They took the L last night, but let's get it online somewhere that they last lost in 2010. Their 41 match winning streak can't be faded. We want to give a fat mother-lovin' shot-out to an amazing team and program.
Now... onto Football.
Dennis-Yarmouth at Plymouth South, 7 PM
PS has won their last 3 games 120-33. D-Y (ranked 81st in the state rankings) seeks to balance that out.
Falmouth at Nauset, 7 PM
Falmouth cost me some loot last week when they won their first game, but I was happy to lose it if it meant that a great bunch of kids got the W they deserved. Nauset is undefeated, and ranked 31st in the state.
Marshfield at Plymouth North, 7 PM
I hate betting against North, because I taught there once. However.... Marsh Vegas is long overdue for Win #1, and North is ripe for the picking.
Marsh Vegas, 10-9
Hingham at #3 Duxbury, 7 PM
Both teams are undefeated (Hingham has a forfeit loss from using an ineligible player), and the winner owns the Patriot League.
Whitman-Hanson at Silver Lake, 7 PM
It's been a tough year for Silver Lake, but the fishing in Monponsett has been superb.
Apponequet at Fairhaven, 7 PM
Appy has a 4 game winning streak on the line, but I'm feeling Fairhaven.
Old Rochester at Bourne, 7 PM
Bourne has worked in 3 game winning/losing streaks this season, and they've lost 3 straight.
Seekonk at Wareham, 7 PM
How's Yo Hammy?? Wareham will run all over a game Seekonk team.
Carver at Mashpee, 7 PM
Mashpee has a 315 pound player, Nathan Chrzanowski (pronounced "Chrzanowski"), which already makes me love them.
Cohasset at Sandwich, 7 PM
Wealthier towns on the South Shore like Cohasset and Duxbury tend to get it up for Cape teams the way poor South Shore towns like Rockland or Randolph do for Duxbury and Cohasset.
Lowell Catholic at Pope John Paul II, 6 PM
Lowell Catholic is 7-0 and has a point differential of 292-52. PJP2 isn't and, uhm, doesn't.
Martha's Vineyard at Bishop Feehan, 1 PM
Feehan is 4-2, with each win being a shutout. Considering the incoming weather, the Vineyarders may want to make friends with the mainland team and maybe stay onshore with them.
Old Colony at Upper Cape, 2 PM
I'm happy to see UCT ranked 79th in the state, but methinks that the rankings people should come more correcter than that.
South Shore Voke Tech at Nantucket, 5 PM
Should be a fun ferry ride. We always bet seasickness in this column, it's what makes us unique.
Pembroke at Middleboro, 1 PM
Pemby can handle any town that thought they were getting a casino but aren't. That bylaw they have there about No Cursing should be tested severely Saturday.
Billerica at #1 Barnstable, 2:30 PM
People from Billerica refer to themselves as "Billericaites." I'd have gone with "Billericans" or maybe "Billy Ricans," but I don't have to live there.
Hull at Cape Cod Tech, 1 PM
Cape Cod Tech has one opponent this season (Upper Cape Tech) who actually shares Cape Cod with them. They were playing Lowell last week.
