Merrimack at Bedford (1 p.m.)
If the Bulldogs lose a game this season, it’ll come against a team on the other half of the bracket. Bedford, 31-14.
Pinkerton at Salem (1 p.m.)
Look pretty with a fancy spread offense? Not these teams, which would rather pound you into submission running the Wing-T. Salem, 14-13.
Souhegan at Plymouth (1 p.m.)
The Sabers were in the tougher half of Division II (South Conference) and are playing their best football (five-game winning streak) at the right time, so the Bobcats may be in for a fight. Plymouth, 28-20.
Alvirne at St. Thomas (3:30 p.m., Portsmouth High School)
A two-point conversion could be the difference, and no team is better when it goes for two than the Broncos. Alvirne, 28-27.
Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton at Monadnock (1 p.m.)
The Redhawks are better than most teams in Division III, but the Huskies are a different kind of critter. Monadnock, 36-6.
Stevens at Campbell (1 p.m.)
Scary matchup for the Cougars, since the Cardinals have a history of pulling off postseason surprises. Campbell, 21-14.
Winnisquam vs. Franklin (7 p.m., Laconia High School).
Neighboring schools going at it with a championship on the line. What’s better than that? Winnisquam, 20-12.
Last week: 9-4
2018 record: 213-53
