Hopkinton over Newton South - Hey Keegan, remember when you came in for your All-Scholastic picture? You signed a release giving 10 percent of your future earnings to the Globe’s school sports staff. You must have forgotten because we haven’t seen the check.
Wytopitlock over Mattawamkeag - The death of the great Jack Daly last month won’t stop us from singing the praises of mighty Wytopitlock.
Everett over Leominster - How many Crimson fans know the team won’t be playing at Gillette this year? What does the MIAA have against Everett?
Haverhill over Malden - Not only will Haverhill win tonight but the Hillies will be 3-0 heading into the Andover.
Coventry Academy over Dracut - The Middies will find out quickly that Coventry is more than just a lacrosse power.
Gloucester over Lynn English - Come on Gorton’s, you can do better than $50,000. Isn’t Gorton’s Fishermen Field at Newell Stadium the obvious name? We’re dying to cover a game there and call it “The Stick.’’ Get it? Fish stick. Hello? Anyone listening?
Monomy Regional over Nantucket - OK, so it’s a little early to predict a win for the 2014 combo of Chatham and Harwich. But it’s never too early to plea for having “The Sharks’’ as the school mascot. “Great Whites’’ works too, but that doesn’t sound right.
Dighton-Rehoboth over Somerset - Note to players: don’t let your coach’s chase for 200 wins become like the Sox and Tim Wakefield. Get it done tonight.
