High School: Week 7 High School Round Up

The regular season is quickly winding down and the playoffs are a week away in some states and two weeks away in others. Here are some thoughts on the weekend that was and what’s on tap for this weekend.


Greenwich beat St. Joe’s 36-26 and in the process proved that they are one of the top three public school programs in the state. The Cardinals are primed to make a playoff run.

David Dojilidko powered Shelton past Norwich Free Academy, 49-28. The next three games will determine where Shelton will finish in L.

Trumbull’s Hunter Agosti was 13-27 for 185 yards, 3 touchdowns and a pick, but Rowan Johnston carried the offensive load—he ran 23 times for 172 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles 42-14 win over Stamford.

Loomis Chaffee continued to roll with a 41-7 win over Deerfield (Ma). Next up for the Pels is Trinity Pawling out of New York.

Brunswick School moved to 4-1 with an impressive 28-0 win over Wyoming Seminary Prep. Wayne McGillicuddy has done a tremendous job with this program and turned them into a legitimate threat in the prep ranks.


Leavitt will look to finish 9-0 in the regular season when they visit Fryeburg this week. The Hornets have scored 326 points this season. They’ve only given up 96. Talk about dominance.

Cape Elizabeth has been dominant in their last five games. Aside from their heartbreaking 21-20 loss to Leavitt, they have rolled every other team.

Thornton Academy has been on a roll the past three weeks but they’ve got a big game on Friday night Bonny Eagle. The game will have major regional playoff implications.

Skowhegan suffered a tough loss to Thornton Academy last week but the River Hawks are still first in B North and a favorite heading into the playoffs. A visit to fourth place Windham is next.

Foxcroft Academy beat MCI 63-7 but remain in fourth place in D. They will need to win this week Freeport who is in second place in D. Another game with a lot at stake.


Catholic Memorial had to hold on to beat a very good St. John’s Prep team led by Georgia committ Joenel Aguero. Aguero was a one man wrecking crew scoring on a touchdown catch, punt return and he had a pick that led to a Prep field goal.

King Philip is now in the drivers seat in the Kelley-Rex Divsion of the Hockomock League after beat Milford 19-7. The Warriors have a bye this week before taking on North Attleboro next week.

Hanover had an impressive 36-8 win over Scituate. The Hawks made a statement that they are one of the top teams in the Patriot League.

Middleboro stunned Rockland 20-19 in one of the best games of the year. Pat Kingman’s team is always good. They are a contender year in and year out.

People are sleeping on Westwood but the Wolverines improved to 5-1 with a win over a good Ashland team.

New Hampshire

Pinkerton put in a show on Saturday when they visited Brockton (Ma). They lost 59-44 but Brian O’Reilly’s team acquitted themselves well.

Bishop Guertin won a gritty game against Bedford to move to 6-1. The Cardinals needed a win a win like that. They have a big one this weekend against undefeated Nashua North. The Titans beat Merrimack 49-7.

Souhegan moved to 7-0 after a 49-0 win over Hollis-Brookline. The Sabers are establishing themselves as the team to beat in DII.

Pelham beat Milford 35-13 to stay in the hunt in DII West with Souhegan. The Pythons travel to Souhegan this week for a huge divisional showdown with major ramifications.

Trinity is 7-0 and appears to be the class of Division III. The Pioneers are at Fall Mountain this week.

Rhode Island

Bishop Hendricken and LaSalle played another classic with Hendricken hanging on to win 10-9. Both teams have big games this week. Hendricken travels to Central while the Rams host South Kingstown.

St. Ray’s has back to back wins over Cumberland and Mt. Pleasant. At 4-2, the Saints have hit their stride and playing their best football of the season. East Greenwich is up next.

West Warwick and Moses Brown are both undefeated and meeting Friday in Providence in what should be an unreal game between two programs that have been a great story this season.

Lincoln lost a tough one to Chariho last week but they will look to bounce back against a good Middletown team this weekend.

North Kingstown is currently 4th in the State Championship bracket despite being 4-2. They play a Cumberland team that has lost two in a row but still one of the best teams in the state this week.


Burr & Burton host Middlebury in what should be a good game. Bulldogs are primed to be a top two seed in D1.

Champlain Valley is pretty much locked in as the number one sees in D1. They play 1-6 Bellows Free Academy this week. With a win, they lock it up.

Bellows Falls should be the top seed in D2 with a win this week over Mount Mansfield. The Terriers offense has been good this season but the D needs to tight up.

Windsor will look to wrap up a dominant season with a game against a tough Woodstock team at home this week.

There is a lot at stake this week when Mt. Anthony and Brattleboro meet in the season finally. Both teams are 5-2. The winner moves into second place in D2.
