No. 10 Pittsfield (12-7) at No. 2 Groveton (18-1), 7 p.m.

Previous tournament games: Pittsfield upended No. 7 Moultonborough, 37-27. Groveton rolled past No. 15 Canaan-Pittsburg, 53-22.

Pittsfield enters on a five-game winning streak, relying on a feverish defense to lock down its opponents. Groveton has won seven straight after its only loss of the season, a one-point setback to No. 4 Woodsville.
