In similar fashion to week one, week three carries with it a bevy of high-profile matchups as teams either finish off their non-league schedules in style or head into league play with plenty on the line
For the second week in a row, No. 1 Everett is playing in our top game to watch when they host No. 6 St. John's Prep. A Patriot League Keenan battle, two big non-league contests, and a Hockomock Kelley-Rex showdown highlight our other four games to keep an eye on.

Here are our five MIAA Football games to watch in week three:

1. No. 6 St. John's Prep at No. 1 Everett, Saturday 130pm

High School Football Notes: Dillon Looks to Lead L-S Back; McElroy a Standout Performer, and other notes

James Dillon (pictured) is looking to pound Lincoln-Sudbury back to Gillette Stadium.

By Matt Feld (@Mattyfeld612)

Boston, Mass. -- James Dillon still remembers the late evening hours of December 2nd, 2017. 

Walking off the Gillette Stadium field, sitting in the locker room, and meagerly walking to the bus in disbelief Dillon can recreate the shock that encompassed Lincoln-Sudbury in the wake of its 10-7 loss to King Philip in the Div. 2 Super Bowl.

“I, we really, still think about it every day,” said Dillon. “We haven’t gotten over it, just because of how close the game was.”

MIAA Football: Top 25 Poll Week Two

By Matt Feld (@Mattyfeld612)

The two first weeks of the MIAA Football regular season are now in the books, and SuiteSports is ready to release its second regular season MIAA Football Top 25 Poll as selected by its panel of writers, correspondents and editors.

There is a shakeup in our top five, with North Andover grabbing the No. 5 spot following a win over Lowell on Saturday afternoon. Elsewhere, Needham (No. 14) and Brockton (No. 15) have firmly supplant themselves in our top 15 while Braintree (No. 17) makes its season debut. 

We will have more high school football coverage throughout the week, including our first high school football notebook out tomorrow, but for now here is our updated MIAA Football Top 25 Poll.

1. Everett (2-0; Last Week: 1) Forget catching Everett, it's going to be interesting to see whether anyone can simply slowdown Mike Sainristil.
