High School: Week 4 games to watch

Cole Finney and the Hingham Harborman have a chance to earn a program defining win tonight.

Week 4 doesn’t feature the sheer number of heavyweight match ups like last week did but there are still some quality match ups.

Here are our top match ups for the weekend.

Brockton Boxers (1-2) at #3 Everett Crimson Tide (2-1): Since losing to Springfield Central in their opener, Everett has got their groove back with wins over Xaverian and SJS. Now they entertain a Brockton team that is limping in off back to back loses to Lynn Classical and Natick. The Boxers are talented but there is still something missing with this team. I think this will be a good game but I don’t see Brockton beating Everett on the road.

Duxbury Dragons (1-2) at Hingham Harborman (3-0): If there was ever a year Hingham would beat Duxbury, this would be the year right? Well, to quote Lee Corso. Not so fast my friend! The Dragons have rediscovered their mojo offensively after moving wide receiver Will Prouty to quarterback. Prouty is a terrific athlete and he does it all for the Dragons. Hingham is well coached and with the return of Duke commit tight end Cole Finney, should be tough to beat.

Newton North Tigers (2-0) at Wellesley Raiders (1-0): Both teams get overshadowed by Natick in the Bay State Conference but both are talented and could make a run in their respective divisions. Newton North quarterback Andrew Landry is the real deal and a lot to handle both as a runner and as a passer Wellesley is undersized but well coached. I think this game will be close and in many ways it will come down to whether or not Wellesley can get consistent pressure on Landry.

#6 King Philip Warriors (2-0) at #11 Franklin Panthers (2-0): King Philip has dominated this rivalry having beaten Franklin ten straight years. That wear on the minds of the Panthers. Franklin is good enough to win this game but they must get off to a fast start and their defense must keep Warriors running back Ryan Halliday in check. That won’t be easy. Despite that, expect this to be a tight game again like two years ago when KP squeaked by on a last second field 17-14.

#18 Boston College H.S Eagles (1-1) at #22 Tewksbury Redmen (1-1): B.C High will look to avenge last year’s loss to Tewksbury at home. It won’t be as Shane Aylward and the Redmen play tough st home. Tewksbury is small while B.C High boasts one of the biggest lines they have ever had. That could spell trouble for them as they try to turn things around after last week’s loss to Methuen.

North Andover Scarlet Knight (1-1) at #4 Central Catholic Red Raiders (1-1): I don’t think Central has forgotten last season’s 14-7 loss to North Andover. It is fresh in their minds and will serve as a motivating factor. Especially because Central lost to the Prep last week.
