Game of the Week

Lincoln-Sudbury Regional at Framingham, 7 p.m. Friday: The Warriors (3-0) have started out on a tear even without two-way star Brian Carroll, but they'll face a strong test in Framingham (2-1) and coach Gary Doherty’s high-powered offense. From the Something’s Gotta Give Department: Framingham is averaging 36 points per game after three weeks, while Lincoln-Sudbury is giving up just 6.3. Will Flyers senior quarterback Chris Bloomingdale be able to solve a defense led by senior linebackers Paul Sorbo and Chris Giorgio that has given opponents fits?
