Wakefield (7-2, 5-2) at Broughton (4-4, 3-2)
Expect a lot of points in this game. Wakefield quarterback Connor Mitch threw for seven touchdowns in a win against Enloe last week. Broughton, who defeated Heritage, is looking to have its first three-game winning streak this season.
Chris Mangus scored three touchdowns against the Huskies and he should have similar success against the Wolverines' defense. Last year, Wakefield beat Broughton on the last play of the game by blocking the Caps field goal attempt that would have sent the game into overtime.
Millbrook (5-4, 2-3) at WF-R (8-1, 5-0)
Wake Forest-Rolesville is hoping to have another regular season of being undefeated at home. Millbrook will try to break that streak and the Wildcats should be able to stay with the Cougars. Although Millbrook fell to Leesville Road last week, the Wildcats did force two turnovers and had running back Keith Marshall run for three touchdowns.
With both teams focusing on running the football, time of possession will be important. A 10-point lead for either team could be all the cushion necessary for victory.
Sanderson (0-9, 0-5) at Enloe (1-8, 1-4)
Sanderson is searching for its first victory this season. The Spartans will have a chance against Enloe, who fell to Wakefield last week. In order to win, the Spartans will need to score plenty of points since Enloe put up 45 points on the scoreboard last week. In the past two weeks, Sanderson has scored just seven points.
Enloe quarterback John Michael Stewart could have another successful game passing against Sanderson's young defense.
Athens Drive (4-5, 3-3) at Lee Country (3-5, 2-4)
In each of the last two times these two have tangoed, the game has gone down to the final minutes and been decided by two points or less. Athens is sitting at 3-3 in the conference and hoping that one more victory is the ticket to the state playoffs. Lee County is 2-4 in the league and has had trouble defending the pass - which is Athens' specialty. But the Yellow Jackets have been a different team at home this season than on the road, winning twice and keeping it respectable with conference leaders Panther Creek and Middle Creek.
