The Hendersonville Commandos will face a tough non-district opponent when they travel to Murfreesboro to take on the Riverdale Warriors (4-1, 2-1, 7-AAA) Friday night.
In many respects, the two teams have been mirror images of one another so far this season. Both teams have capitalized on their opponents miscues, both have produced big plays offensively and each team relies on a strong defense. Plus, both run the same wing-t offense.
Last year’s meeting between the Battle Ground Academy Wildcats and Pope John Paul II Knights ended 10-7 in favor of JPII. As the Wildcats drove down the field for what could have been the game-winning drive, Alex Sypert stepped in front of a Cole Grosvenor pass to negate the drive and give the Knights the win.
The Beech Buccaneers will be looking for revenge when the Siegel Stars travel to Shackle Island Stadium this Friday night. Last season, the Stars entered the game against Beech with losses only to Blackman and Oakland, two of the best teams in the state. Siegel went on to beat the Bucs 54-21 in a special MyTV30 Thursday Night Lights game that was viewed across the mid-state. It was the most lopsided loss for the Buccaneers in 10 years.
The Station Camp Bison know firsthand that the Pearl Cohn Firebirds can move the ball. A year ago, on homecoming night, Pearl Cohn torched the Bison for 470 yards of total offense and defeated Station Camp, 49-28. Pearl Cohn enters this year’s meeting against the Bison looking like a team getting ready for a deep playoff run in 4-A.
