FRIDAY NIGHT PREVIEW: Panthers no homecoming fodderBy Stephen Dawkins Published 7:00pm Thursday, September 19, 2013
Cullman Christian at Chilton Christian (1-3)
Chilton Christian picked up its first win last week, over Brooklane Baptist, and the Patriots will try to build some momentum with another strong showing.
Loachapoka (3-0) at Verbena (0-3)
Verbena’s tough start to the season could get even tougher with a visit from unbeaten Loachapoka. The Red Devils’ upset bid will at least be aided by playing at home.
Isabella (3-0) at Horseshoe Bend (1-2)
Isabella will try to continue its unbeaten start to the season with a road trip to Horseshoe Bend. IHS coach Scott Booth said the contest might be the Mustangs’ biggest test so far.
Talladega (2-1) at Chilton Co. (1-2)
Chilton County, which showed progress on offense and defense last week, might have to win a low-scoring affair: Talladega games have averaged a total of 28 points.
Sunshine (1-2) at Billingsley (1-2)
Billingsley’s last two efforts have been disappointing, but this week could provide some relief because visiting Sunshine has been outscored 107-13 in two region losses.
Leeds (2-1) at Thorsby (1-2)
Thorsby’s losses the past two weeks have been especially heartbreaking (the Rebels lost by a combined 14 points) because their region slate is so daunting. Leeds will be the first example of that.
