BY THE NUMBERS

2 — Danvers High will be playing in only its second-ever playoff game tonight when it hosts Masconomet in a Division 3 Northeast quarterfinal game. The Falcons’ only other playoff foray came in 2004 when they lost to Walpole, 19-14, at Endicott College in Beverly. Marblehead and Hamilton-Wenham, which like Danvers will also be taking part in the playoffs this weekend, are tied with Salem for the next fewest playoff games in local football history (3).

GAMES TO WATCH

Beverly (4-3) at Gloucester (5-2) tonight at Newell Stadium, 7 p.m.: They won’t come out and say it, but this has to be a rematch that the visiting Panthers were hoping for. Their last loss came in Gloucester against the Fishermen five weeks ago, and they’d love nothing better than to reverse those fortunes tonight. Two teams with power backs that and a penchant for hard-nosed physical football will get after it tonight.

---

St. Mary’s Lynn (4-3) at Bishop Fenwick (7-0) tonight at Donaldson Field, 7 p.m.: Bad news for St. Mary’s: their 6 points scored in their last meeting with Fenwick two weeks ago was their lowest offensive output of the season. More bad news: Fenwick’s 34 points that night were also its lowest points scored this fall; the Crusaders are averaging 44 a game.
