"Game of the Week" Video by Jeremy Weiner for Mass Prep Stars
DANVERS, Mass. -- Saturday's "Game of the Week" featured two perennial Division 1 state powers in Central Catholic and St. John's Prep. Both teams entered Saturday's contest with matching 2-0 records and both programs were riding the highs of strong week 2 performances.
It would be the Eagles of St. John's Prep who would emerge victorious, as they would force five turnovers on defense and employ a balanced passing and running attack to defeat Central Catholic, 27-12.
The road does not get any easier for either team, as St. John's Prep (3-0) travels to Everett next Saturday to take on a hungry Crimson Tide (2-1) team, who narrowly defeated Tewksbury (1-1) 21-20 on Friday night.
Central gets back to work on Friday night against fellow Merrimack Valley Conference rival Andover (2-1).
