Lawrence (2-7) at Peabody (3-6) tonight at Coley Lee Field, 7 p.m.: Don’t let the Lancers’ record fool you, or the fact that they’re giving up better than 30 points a game. Playing out of the rugged Merrimack Valley Conference, they’ve cut their teeth against some of the big boys in EMass. football circles and would love to leave the Tanner City with a W. Peabody will want to grab an early lead tonight and play with confidence once they get it in order to emerge with the victory.
Danvers (7-2) at Beverly (5-4) tomorrow at Hurd Stadium, 1 p.m.: Beverly’s first rematch with an opponent who had already defeated them this season didn’t fare so well — as their playoff loss in Gloucester two weeks ago attests — but they’re no doubt relishing a return matchup with the Falcons, who knocked them off, 33-28, in Week 2. Danvers, which had great success last week in Wilmington going to a spread offense, wants to complete their season sweep over the Orange-and-Black — on enemy turf, no less.
