North Forsyth Raiders (2-1) at Peachtree Ridge Lions (1-2)

Peachtree Ridge High School (1555 Old Peachtree Road, Suwanee 30024), 7:30 p.m.

Last season: Lions defeated Raiders 55-20

Coaches: Jared Zito (NF); Bill Ballard (PR)

Players to watch: QB Eli Chester, RB Tyler Slaton, RB Jory Walsh (NF); QB Nick Lombardo, RB Ronnie Smith (PR)

Outlook: After an 0-2 start, Peachtree Ridge won its Region 7-AAAAA opener against Northview last week. The Lions appear downgraded from the program that won 19 games and shared a state championship in the last two seasons, but could have enough to play an important role in the region again. North has strung together two wins for the first time since 2005, and now enters the meat of the schedule. It will be a positive signal for the rest of the year if the Raiders can hang tough in this one.
