Thursday Pickorama – Boston Herald


Here we go, state semifinal football time.
The contenders have separated themselves from the rest of the field. We are hoping that we can predict which one of those contenders will take the final steps toward a road trip to Gillette Stadium in two weeks. For good measure, we’ve added a few NEPSAC Bowl games to spice things up.
Good luck to all and please have fun with the picks, pro or con.


Springfield Central over Methuen: Until someone proves otherwise, we’re not jumping off the Watson Wagon.

St. John’s Prep over Central Catholic: Tough to beat the Eagles twice in the same season.

King Philip over Bishop Feehan: I get a sense the Warriors will find a way to slow down the potent Shamrock running game.

Catholic Memorial over Milford: Much like Springfield Central, we’re not leaving the Knights juggernaut just yet.

Milton over Hanover: Could very well be a case of the first team to get to 40 wins.

North Attleboro over Wakefield: Red Rocketeers are battled tested in November and that could be the difference here.

Duxbury over Holliston: As many close to the scene have said, the Dragons are on a mission.

North Reading over Bishop Fenwick: Hornets are motivated to return to Gillette after losing a heartbreaker there last year.

Rockland over St. Mary’s: Just think the Bulldogs have plenty of players back from a Div. 6 state championship squad and that will be the difference.

Stoneham over Cardinal Spellman: Spartans put an end to Cardinal Spellman’s Cinderella-like postseason run.

Hull over Old Colony: Pirates are another team looking to return to Gillette to finish the job.

Lawrence Academy over Dexter Southfield: Sensing the visiting Spartans want to get back on then field ASAP to erase the feeling of last week’s loss.

St. Sebastian’s over Brooks: Arrows end a surprisingly strong season with a bowl victory.

St. Paul’s over BB&N: Like the home cooking in this matchup.

LAST WEEK: 7-3 (.700)

SEASON TO DATE: 69-31 (.690)
