Final thoughts - With the regular season in the books, here are your best-of-the-best. The highest scoring team in EMass was Everett at 41.4 points per game. Weymouth was second at 38.1. The best defense belonged to Cardinal Spellman, which allowed 5.6 points per game. Greater Lawrence was close behind, allowing 7 points per game.
The scoring race was won by St. Mary's senior running back Todd Collier with 196 points. And despite a valiant effort by Weymouth's Cam McLevedge (41 TD passes), the touchdown passing leader was again Everett's Jonathan DiBiaso with 42. As for touchdown receptions, the leader was Pope John's Malcolm Brown with 20 . . . Barnstable's D.J. Crook returned from a wrist injury to throw two touchdown passes again Falmouth. That gives Crook 76 career touchdown passes, good enough for a fifth-place tie on the all-time list with Algonquin's Marc Eddy.
