Dover at Merrimack (6:30 p.m.)

It’ll be a surprise if Merrimack isn’t 2-0 when this game is over. Merrimack, 20-14.

Exeter at Keene (6:30 p.m.)

It’s been a long time since the Blackbirds beat the Blue Hawks. Exeter, 35-7.

Portsmouth at Winnacunnet (6:30 p.m.)

One of these teams will have to climb out of an 0-2 hole. Portsmouth, 20-13

Spaulding at Nashua North (6:30 p.m.)

The Red Raiders are headed in the right direction, but beating the Titans on the road may be asking too much. North, 34-20.

Manchester Central at Timberlane (6:30 p.m.)

Timberlane falls to 0-2 against Manchester schools. Central, 21-7.

Pembroke at Kennett (7 p.m.)

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Kennett program. Kennett, 34-0.

ConVal at Souhegan (7 p.m.)

ConVal opened with a victory over a rebuilding Kingswood program, but the task is tougher this week. Souhegan, 28-6.

Bedford at Concord (7 p.m.)

Here’s some bad news for the rest of Division I: Bedford is still really good. Bedford, 42-7.

Memorial at Pinkerton (7 p.m.)

For those wondering, Memorial’s last 2-0 start came in 2010. Pinkerton, 35-14.

Bow at Kingswood (7 p.m.)

Tip of the hat to Bow coach Paul Cohen for his decision to go for two with the game on the line last week. Bow, 28-6.

Milford at Manchester West (7 p.m.)

It’s going to be interesting to see what Gavin Urda’s statistics look like when the season is over. Milford, 35-14.

Sanborn at Pelham (7 p.m.)

The Pelham offense sputtered in last week’s loss to Alvirne, but there’s nothing wrong with how the Pythons are playing defense. Pelham, 21-7.

Kearsarge-Mount Royal at Laconia (7 p.m.)

The Sachems enter the win column. Laconia, 26-6.

Newport at Stevens (7 p.m.)

Hopefully, John Proper will provide the Newport program with some coaching stability. Stevens, 34-14.

Monadnock at Somersworth (7 p.m.)

Don’t say we didn’t warn you about Monadnock. Monadnock, 28-6.

Trinity at Lebanon (7 p.m.)

Note to Manchester folks: This game might be worth the drive. Lebanon, 21-20.


Londonderry at Salem (10 a.m.)

This may not be the last time these teams face one another this season. Salem, 21-20.

Goffstown at Windham (10 a.m.)

Windham will have to do more on offense than it did a week ago to give itself a chance. Goffstown, 14-12.

Inter-Lakes/Moultonborough at Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton (1 p.m.)

The Over/Under for Colby Quiet touchdowns is 2.5. H-D/H, 42-7.

Fall Mountain at Winnisquam (1 p.m.)

This is the first of three straight road games for the Wildcats. Winnisquam, 39-14.

Raymond at Newfound (1 p.m.)

The Rams raised some eyebrows with their lopsided road victory against Fall Mountain last weekend. Raymond, 26-20

Merrimack Valley at Gilford-Belmont (1:30 p.m.)

Gilford-Belmont needs a victory here, because road games against Plymouth and Bow are up next. Gilford-Belmont, 26-14.

Hanover at Hollis/Brookline (2 p.m.)

With Division II South being so tough, winning these crossover matchups against teams from the North has added importance. Hollis/Brookline, 26-7.

Alvirne at St. Thomas (2 p.m.)

Have we mentioned how tough Division II South is going to be this season? Alvirne, 28-14.

Plymouth at John Stark (2 p.m.)

Anyone want to bet that the Bobcats don’t lose two in a row? Plymouth, 26-13.

Campbell at Epping-Newmarket (2 p.m.)

The Cougars should be unbeaten entering their Oct. 5 game at Trinity. Campbell, 36-6.

Farmington-Nute at Franklin (2 p.m.)

These two teams allowed 102 points in Week 1. Franklin, 35-12.

Bishop Brady at Mascoma Valley (2 p.m.)

Full disclosure: Three of last week’s four incorrect picks involved Division IV teams. Bishop Brady, 28-26.

Nashua South at Bishop Guertin (6:30 p.m.)

There was some bad blood between these programs back in the day. So bad that even the parents disliked each other. South, 21-12.

Last week: 25-4; 2019 record: 25-4.
