GAME OF THE WEEK

GREENBRIER at GROVETOWN

Time: 7:30 P.M.

Where: War Zone (Grovetown HS)

All-Time: Grovetown leads 8-2

Last Time: Greenbrier won 20-19

WHAT TO KNOW: Greenbrier is in a good position to get its third win of the season and remain undefeated as they take on Grovetown Friday. The Warriors have relied heavily on their defense to remain in contention, but the unit will be tested against Greenbrier’s pass-heavy offense.

The Wolfpack (2-0) have just under 500 passing yards in two games as junior quarterback Brooks Pangle has thrown six touchdowns and no interceptions.

WHAT TO WATCH:

1. Clash of the top-5: Richmond Academy and Evans will meet on Friday night at ARC Stadium in a clash between two of the area’s top five teams. Evans leads the series 20-4-1 and defeated ARC last year 20-10 after scoring 20 unanswered in the second half. After a week off, the Musketeers have a tough challenge ahead of them with Evans high-octane offense.

2. No more preseason: South Carolina is no longer in the preseason phase of its fall season; football is back in the Palmetto State. South Carolina high school football returns this week with a couple of area top 10 teams kicking off. Both Fox Creek and North Augusta get its seasons underway on Friday night.

3. Debut: North Augusta coach Jim Bob Bryant makes his coaching debut for the Yellow Jackets. Bryant, who won three state titles at Havelock High School in North Carolina, has a talented roster and should push the Yellow Jackets into contention early in his tenure.

4. Week off: Harlem gets a much-needed week off after three straight losses to start the season. Fumbles have been a serious problem for the Bulldogs. Hephzibah is also off, but that wasn’t the original plan. After COVID-19 positive cases were reported in the football program, the Richmond County School System canceled two games.

5. Ending a streak: Cross Creek has a chance to end its scoreless streak on Friday night when it travels to play Josey. The Razorbacks have a chance to put points on the board against Josey, who is playing its first game of the season.
