GAMES TO WATCH

Peabody (2-3) at Revere (0-5) tonight at Della Russo Stadium, 7 p.m.: The visiting Tanners will be looking to put together back-to-back wins for the first time in 23 months while also bettering their chances of earning a coveted Division 1 North playoff berth.

---

Salem (1-4) at Danvers (4-1) tonight at Deering Stadium, 7 p.m. There’s a lot riding on this contest for both teams; an upset victory by the Witches would do wonders toward qualifying for the postseason, while the hosts can clinch a playoff berth and a tie for the NEC South crown with a triumph of their own.

---

Bishop Fenwick (5-0) at St. Mary’s Lynn (3-2) tomorrow at Manning Field, 7 p.m.: A Fenwick win clinches the Catholic Central League Large championship against the team that dashed their title hopes in the final minute of last year’s game. Is that enough incentive for you?
