The theme for Week 4 of high school football on the South Shore is Friday Night Lights.
Every team will be playing under the lights this week, with all but two games scheduled for Friday.
Canton, maybe the area's most surprising 3-0 team, kicks off the week against an always-tough Mansfield team. Abington and North Quincy will play for just the fourth time ever on Thursday.
Three games really jump out on Friday (Hull at Randolph, Plymouth South at Hanover and Walpole at Milton).
Hull and Randolph is a rematch of last year's Division 8 Super Bowl which the Blue Devils won. South and Hanover are meeting in a pivotal Patriot League Fisher Division game. Walpole and Milton, both in the Bay State's Herget Division, enter with impressive 3-0 records.
