Friday Football Preview: Region Games Galore
Hiram hits the road while North Paulding and Paulding County host regional opponents.
Hiram (3-3, 1-2) at Sprayberry (2-3, 1-1) – Only Osborne is below Hiram in the Region 5N-AAAA standings right now, but a win from the Hornets tonight could launch them all the way up to third place if they get some help. Hiram has lost two games in a row and has not scored many points during that stretch. The Yellow Jackets are giving up 33 points per game this season, meaning Hiram can get its offense back on track on the road.
Pope (4-1, 1-1) at North Paulding (3-3, 1-2) – The Wolfpack ended a two-game losing streak last week with a region win over Hiram. Tonight they host a potent Pope offense that may not be firing on all cylinders. Injuries have taken a toll on the Greyhounds and North Paulding can make up some ground in Region 5N-AAAA if it takes advantage tonight.
Alexander (3-3, 2-1) at Paulding County (1-4, 0-2) – Paulding County has scored just under 11 points per game over its last four games – all losses. Tonight the Patriots host Alexander, a team that’s won three of its last four games and is tied for third place in Region 5S-AAAA play. If Paulding County can contain a pesky Cougar quarterback it can nab its first region win.
East Paulding – Bye Week
South Paulding – Bye Week
