The top-billed game in Massachusetts this weekend took place in Everett, as the No. 1 Crimson Tide welcomed Division 1 powerhouse Xaverian. It was Everett's toughest challenge to date, but it turned out to be another easy victory for the state's best team. Everett passed (302 yards for QB Jonathan DiBiaso) and ran (203 yards for RB Vondell Langston) at will in an 42-21 win.
The other big news came with Chelmsford upsetting Andover, 48-28. With that effort, Chelmsford moves up from No. 7 to No. 5 in the rankings, while Andover drops from No. 4 to that nebulous area outside the POWERADE Top 10.
