Saturday

Division I

Nashua South at Exeter (1 p.m.)

Exeter beat South 30-14 last Friday, and if the Blue Hawks beat you in the first meeting, they usually beat you the second time around as well. Exeter, 21-13.

Merrimack at Nashua North (1 p.m.)

The Titans won’t have injured quarterback Curtis Harris, but the North defense will be the difference. North, 14-6.

Salem at Goffstown (2 p.m/Saint Anselm College)

The Grizzlies won the first matchup between these teams, but the Blue Devils will win Round 2. Salem, 27-14.

Pinkerton at Londonderry (2 p.m.)

The Astros are capable of trading punches with the Lancers for a while, but not for a full four quarters. Londonderry, 28-14.

Division II

Souhegan at Bow (1 p.m.)

Souhegan isn’t your typical No. 8 seed, but the Falcons advance. Bow, 27-20.

Alvirne at Milford (1 p.m.)

If you want to be entertained Saturday afternoon, find your way to Milford High School. Milford, 27-26.

Plymouth at Pelham (1 p.m.)

The Pythons have as good a chance as any team to win the Division II title. Pelham, 13-7.

Hollis/Brookline at Kennett (1 p.m.)

How deep is the Division II playoff field? The Cavaliers have scored at least 48 points in six of their nine games and they’re a No. 5 seed. Hollis/Brookline, 42-14.

Division III

Laconia at Lebanon (1 p.m.)

You have to play defense to win in the postseason, and the Raiders allowed 81 points in their eight victories. Lebanon, 28-6.

Newport at Trinity (1 p.m.)

John Thibault’s former school faces John Thibault’s current school. Trinity, 28-12.

Stevens at Campbell (1 p.m.)

It’s been nearly a month since Stevens won a football game. Campbell, 26-13.
