High School: What We Learned: BB&N 34 Belmont Hill 0

CAMBRIDGE — Usually when Belmont Hill and BB&N get together, you see a back-and-forth type of game with lead changes.

The 2000 game in which Foxboro snapped North Attleboro’s 38 game winning streak immediately comes to mind. Friday night’s game at Community Field wasn’t as big as that but it was was another classic.

The penalties It’s simple, has just about a weekly spot here and might be the most cliche answer in all of sports, but after the 10-penalty performance totaling 60 yards against Clemson, it’s still an issue for this team.

Harvard Preview: LaFayette Leopards (2-4) at Harvard Crimson (4-0)

After a slow start last week against Cornell, the Crimson will look to bounce back against a LaFayette team that has been inconsistent this season. The game is a good opportunity to get the offense back on track after they struggled in the first half last week. Harvard has been pretty balanced this season so. They have played well in all three phases. They need to get back to that…

Patriots: Another big test early in his career looms for Mac Jones on Sunday

PHOTO: AP/Frank Franklin II Despite the loss, I think just about everyone agrees that Mac Jones passed the Tampa Bay test in terms of being able to handle the bright lights and everything else that came with the game during that wild week. Now, Jones is facing a similar yet completely different type of test when the Cowboys visit for another national TV game and a 4:25 kick off on…
