MIAA football Top 25 poll: Week 9

It's crunch time for Massachusetts high school football teams as the countdown to Thanksgiving Day winds down. With plenty of league title and playoffs berths up for grabs, there was a plenty jockeying for position in this week's MIAA football Top 25 poll.

There was one new team to the poll with Old Colony League champion Barnstable moving to No. 18 following their victory over Bridgewater-Raynham. Meanwhile, Billerica falls out of this week's poll following their 44-28 loss to Andover.

The big mover of the week is Catholic Memorial, which moved up four spots from No. 9 to jump into the Top 5 for the first time since our preseason poll.
