Football Friday head:Games to Watch

Football Friday key 4:

Salem (0-0) at Gloucester (1-0) tonight at Newell Stadium, 7: The Fishermen are looking to start 2-0 on the new turf at New Balance Track and Field at Newell Stadium. The Witches, who will be playing their season opener, and Fishermen enter tonight’s matchup with contrasting styles offensively. The athletic Witches operate out of the spread while the Fishermen will keep it on the ground in the wing-t.

Beverly (0-1) at Danvers (0-1) tonight at Deering Stadium, 7: You don’t want to start a shortened regular season 0-2 — and both of these teams certainly have something to prove after Week 1 setbacks. Can the host Falcons rebound from a home blowout with an upset victory tomorrow, or will the heavily favored Panthers right their ship instead?

Bishop Fenwick (0-0) at Hamilton-Wenham (0-0) Saturday at Hamilton-Wenham Regional field, 1: In what’s developed into a terrific local rivalry over the last five years, this one promises to be another doozy. Can the hosts stop a bigger (and likely faster) Fenwick team? Or can the Crusaders handle the myriad of options that H-W is likely to throw at them?

Football Friday head:They Said It

“Coming off that high of last week’s win we are trying to keep that same intensity this week while at the same time not being satisfied and looking to improve. This week at practice the team has done that. They are looking at it like this week’s game is always the most important game of the season.”

-Gloucester head coach Tony Zerilli
