BY THE NUMBERS

.354 and .218. The first number is Scott Wlasuk’s winning percentage in his 4 1/2 seasons as head coach at Peabody High. The second number is the Tanners’ winning percentage in the three years prior to his hiring. Wlasuk, who resigned as Peabody’s head coach this week, may not have brought the Peabody program back to the high perch it once sat on, but he did bring a level of respectability back.

GAMES TO WATCH

Revere (3-1) at Peabody (0-5), tonight at 7 p.m.: Based simply on season results, there would be no reason for this game to qualify here. The Patriots are off to a solid start and have the benefit of a bye week to prepare for a Peabody team that has been outscored 224-41. On paper, it’s a mismatch, but this became a spotlight game when Scott Wlasuk resigned earlier this week. Wearing the interim tag, Matt O’Brien gets his first crack as the Tanners’ head coach.

---

Hamilton-Wenham (2-2) at Bishop Fenwick (5-0), tonight at 7 p.m.: This is the fourth straight year these two North Shore teams have met and the Generals still owe Fenwick a bit of payback. Hamilton-Wenham pounded the Crusaders, 46-13, last fall, but Fenwick owns a 2-1 advantage over Hamilton-Wenham during this stretch, including a 25-7 victory in 2010 that knocked the Generals from the unbeaten ranks.

---

Salem (3-2) vs. Lynn English (3-2), at Manning Field tonight at 7 p.m.: The Witches return to Manning Field with the hope of erasing the memory of last week’s loss to Lynn Classical, but the rejuvenated Bulldogs present a major challenge. English has handily won its last two games since switching to a run-heavy, I-formation offensive attack.
