BY THE NUMBERS

GAMES TO WATCH

Revere (5-3) vs. Masconomet (7-2), tonight at Walt Roberts Field (7): The Chieftains can clinch their spot in the playoffs with a win tonight. Masco comes in having won three straight while the Patriots have lost two in a row. Revere has good speed in Tom Portrait but the Chieftains have speed to match in Dylan Mann and company. Masco is looking for its first playoff berth since 2009.

---

Swampscott (4-5) at Gloucester (2-7), tomorrow at Hyland Field (7): The Fishermen are looking for their first winning streak since 2010 and enter the game fresh off the heels of a 28-19 win over Salem. Swampscott runs a balanced offense out of the spread and is not as explosive as it has been in years past. Quarterback Brian Santry can both run and throw. Gloucester will look to use its physicality to grind out a win.

---

Salem (4-5) at Danvers (4-5), tonight at Dr. Deering Stadium (7): If the last two weeks are any indication, plan on staying until the final snap when these teams hook up. Danvers is coming off a tough last-second loss to Marblehead while Salem watched Gloucester come from behind to beat them in the second half. Both teams want to spit out that bad taste and go to Thanksgiving on a winning note and both are playing pretty good football. The Falcons won 42-28 a year ago but haven’t beat Salem in back-to-back years since ‘04-05.
