Several big games are on tap tonight. Midland Valley is at South Aiken with a home playoff game at stake, and Hephzibah tries to keep pace in the Region 3-AAAA race when it takes on Richmond Academy.

Here's a look at the weekend's games:

FRIDAY

l Lincoln County at Wilkinson County: All that’s on the line between these two top-10 teams is the Region 7-A title.

l Thomson at Burke County: Wounded Bears’ defense might be getting what it needs: an opposing offense that has produced 7 or fewer points three of the past four games.

l Washington County at Baldwin: Region 3-AAA title on the line; Baldwin is the defending champion and has won four games in a row.

l Screven County at Jefferson County: The Warriors can clinch region title with a win; the Gamecocks need to win to keep playoff hopes alive.

l Laney at East Laurens: The Wildcats will not make the playoffs but can still finish .500 or better for 10th consecutive season.

l Dodge County at Swainsboro: The Tigers have only lost to Jefferson County and clinches a home playoff game with a win.

l Aquinas at Hancock Central: The Irish can finish .500 if they win their final two games.

l Washington-Wilkes at Warren County: Screaming Devils have clinched a playoff berth, now they can try and move up the seeding ladder.

l Hammond at Augusta Christian: The Lions, winners of two in a row, have reason to believe they can knock off three-time defending state champion.

l Jenkins County at Wheeler County: Eagles are attempting to post third consecutive win; Wheeler County is just 1-7.

l Butler at Lakeside: The Panthers are just passing the time until playoffs, hoping Hephzibah and Evans will stumble.

l Cross Creek at Evans: The Razorbacks churned out 280 yards in upset of Richmond Academy last week and still have a shot at the playoffs if they win out.

l Harlem at Josey: Once thought to be on the way to a winless season, the Bulldogs have a great shot to match last season’s four victories.

l Hephzibah at Richmond Academy: The Rebels had 409 yards of offense last year in a 23-0 win over the Musketeers that earned them home playoff game.

l Westside at Glenn Hills: The Spartans are still kicking themselves over loss to Richmond Academy, which will likely keep them out of the playoffs.

l Dutch Fork at Aiken, 8 p.m.: The Hornets now looking for second consecutive win.

l Fox Creek at Ridge Spring-Monetta: The Trojans could win third in a row.

l Midland Valley at South Aiken: Winner gets home game in first round of state playoffs.

l North Augusta at Lexington: Annual matchup averaging 58.7 points per game over past three years.

l Silver Bluff at Barnwell: The Warhorses need a win or a Ridgeland loss at Edisto to make playoffs.

l Strom Thurmond at Gilbert: The Rebels are warming up for playoff push.

l Wagener-Salley at North: Last chance for 0-9 War Eagles to get a win.

l Williston-Elko at Blackville-Hilda: The Blue Devils going for a perfect regular season.

l Brentwood at Nathanael Greene: Brentwood ruined Edmund Burke’s perfect regular season last week and should take a three-game winning streak into the postseason.

l Thomas Jefferson at Briarwood: This is actually a nonregion game; Jags won region meeting 21-7 earlier in the season.

l Edmund Burke at Bulloch: The Spartans will be looking to rebound following their first loss.

Saturday

l Greenbrier at Stephenson: The Wolfpack have a tall order in front of them – Stephenson is a nationally-ranked team and is 8-0 on the year.

Oh how the mighty have

Oh how the mighty have fallen. What happened WaCo, didn't find a defense this week that didn't know the only thing you guys could do was run. See how far that stale offense takes you in the play offs!

I would like to thank...( I

I would like to thank...( I am using this term loosely )... "the coaches" at Cross Creek High school for making me hate High School Football...watching them play their players both ways deep into the game in another hopeless loss to is about all I can take.
...Oh and don't forget the classless band that cost the the defense a 15 yard penalty when they showed complete dis-respect for our team by playing when the home team band was near them....NICE TOUCH! If you don't know the rules they should not travel with the Team!
