North Forsyth Raiders (0-1) at Johnson Knights (0-1)

Johnson High School (3305 Poplar Springs Road, Oakwood), 7:30 p.m.

Last season: Did not play

Coaches: Jared Zito (NF); Paul Friel (Johnson)

Players to watch: QB Eli Chester, RB Tyler Slaton (NF); QB Anthony Prophet, RB Mantevius Rucker (Johnson)

Outlook: The Knights racked up plenty of yardage but were undone by miscues in a 28-6 defeat at North Hall last week. The Raiders are looking to remove the aftertaste from a 21-14 loss to rival West Forsyth in the season opener. This is North’s second shot at a Region 7-AAA opponent before the Raiders enter Region 7-AAAAA play. Zito is impressed with Johnson’s size on the line and skill on both sides of the ball. The Raiders have gone 1-9 the last two years and would like to grab a ‘W’ before entering an always grueling region march.
