Methuen came into their this week averaging 32.5 points per game, but Methuen fell well short of that average, and it cost them. They have to be aching after a bruising 6-28 defeat to Central Catholic on Friday. The state rankings had actually given Methuen a slight edge heading into the game, making this hurt that much more.
Both teams are staying within the conference for their upcoming matches. Next week Methuen take on Lawrence at 7:00 PM. Methuen have seen their point totals decreasing over the past three games, a vulnerability Lawrence are surely hoping to exploit. Central Catholic will be staying on the road, facing off against Haverhill. Since neither squad is a stranger to landslide victories this season, you'd better bet it will be hard-fought showdown.
