Cheverus (2-3) at Lewiston (3-2)

Friday, 7 p.m.

A big game for both teams, but for much different reasons. 

Thornton Academy (4-1) at Oxford Hills (3-2)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Vikings have vocally welcomed their tough schedule, but not sure if they were expecting the Golden Trojans to be coming off a blowout loss.

Westbrook (2-3) at Mt. Blue (1-4)

Friday, 7 p.m.

A win would fortify the Cougars’ playoff hopes significantly, but the defense needs to step up for that to happen.

Cape Elizabeth (4-1) at Leavitt (5-0)

Friday, 7 p.m.

First meeting since 2014 regular-season opener, which Cape Elizabeth won in overtime to avenge a loss the previous fall in the state championship game.

Medomak Valley (1-4) at Gray-New Gloucester (0-5)

Friday, 7 p.m.

The Patriots’ only crossover with a North opponent.

Lisbon (5-0) at Spruce Mtn. (4-1)

Greyhounds’ first visit to Griffin Field since 2008, when it was the Livermore Falls Andies marching down the hill.

Poland (0-5) at Winthrop/Monmouth (2-3)

Friday, 7 p.m.

After a 1-3 start, Ramblers’ schedule give them a chance to build a lot of momentum into the playoffs.

Orono (0-5) at Dirigo (1-4)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Good chance for Cougars to snap four-game losing streak and begin solidfying their playoff hopes.

Mtn. Valley (3-2) at Old Orchard Beach (3-2)

Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

Important game for both teams’ prospects of hosting a playoff game.

Madison (4-1) at Oak Hill (2-3)

Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

Raiders’ reward for hanging in with Wells for a half is trying to contain the Bulldogs’ highest-scoring offense outside of Class A (44.4 ppg).

Sun Journal Top 10

1. Bonny Eagle (5-0)

Scots passed first test of season with flying colors, 49-14 over Thornton.

2. Thornton Academy (4-1)

Golden Trojans follow up loss to Bonny Eagle with a road game at Oxford Hills, which is coming off its best game of the season.

3. Scarborough (4-1)

Red Storm prepare for season finale at Bonny Eagle with back-to-back crossovers with Windham and Oxford Hills.

4. Edward Little (5-0)

The defense earned its second shutout, but if the offense can consistently replicate how it played at Massabesic, Red Eddies will be tough to beat.

5. Marshwood (5-0)

Hawks haven’t been scored upon in the last two games.

6. Kennebunk (5-0)

Rams travel to Mt. Ararat to gear up for next week’s showdown with Marshwood.

7. Falmouth (4-1)

Yachtsmen’s lowest scoring output this year is 37. They’ll probably need at least that much to keep pace with Marshwood Friday night.

8. Leavitt (5-0)

With A and B South so top-heavy and North so schizophrenic, it’s time to recognize the Hornets’ consistency.

9. Oxford Hills (3-2)

It’s still too close to call among Vikings, Windham and Lewiston. But the team that dominated the second half against the Eagles last week looked very good.

10. Windham (3-2)

Mid-season injuries have stymied the Eagles’ pursuit of EL, but they remain dangerous.
