BY THE NUMBERS

2,124 — Total offense produced by Hamilton-Wenham’s Ian Coffey (passing yards plus receiving yards plus rushing yards), by far the most of any North Shore player. Coffey needs only 200 more passing yards to set a new single season Generals school record and four more TD passes to break the mark in that category.

His favorite target, Ryan Monahan, can set a school record for receiving yardage with another 60 and could also break Cam Peach’s record of 10 receiving TD’s with one more.

GAMES TO WATCH

Andover (6-2) vs. St. John’s Prep (7-1) Friday at Glatz Field, 7 p.m.: Lest anyone get caught looking ahead to the Division 1 North final, rememebr that last time Andover came to Danvers for a D1 North semi the Eagles were knocked out of the postseason by QB E.J. Perry, now at Brown. The Warriors have won three straight since a 41-10 drubbing at the hands of Central Catholic and are looking to spoil the Prep’s title defense. The ever-impressive SJP defense could be the difference in this one.

¢¢¢

Masconomet (6-2) at Lincoln-Sudbury (6-2) Friday at 7 p.m.: The Chieftains last two playoff runs ended at Lincoln-Sudbury, 42-28 last year and 52-21 in 2017. This year’s Warrior team isn’t as imposing as the ‘17 juggernaut but the Chieftains know they’ll have to play their best football to have a shot at the program’s first North finals appearance in D2 and first overall since 2014. Both teams are run-first so look for a quick game that may be closer than many expect.

¢¢¢

Manchester Essex (6-1) vs. Latin Academy (6-2) Saturday at Hyland Field, Noon.: The Hornets have yet to reach a sectional final in the current MIAA playoff format and all that stands in their way is a home game against No. 5 Latin Academy. The top-seeded Hornets, who reached the sectional semifinals for the first time since 2013, are looking to ride their tough defense and balanced offense to another victory. Latin Academy is certainly no slouch and the two teams stack up pretty well on paper.

¢¢¢

Swamspcott (6-2) vs. Pentucket (7-1) Satruday at Trinity Stadium, Haverhill, 1 p.m.: Folks in Sachem-town aren’t happy this game is being played on turf at Haverhill rather than on their natural grass high school field by an MIAA decree, so the Green-and-White will be plenty motivated to try and slow down the Big Blue’s high octance offense. Still, as the defending D5 North champs the Big Blue play with confidence and aren’t likely to get sucked into an emotional trap. The Swampscott D is also criminally underrated.
