West Forsyth Wolverines (4-0) at East Hall Vikings (1-3)
East Hall Stadium (school is at 3534 East Hall Road, Gainesville 30507; stadium is half-mile north of entrance on Old Cornelia Hwy.), 7:30 p.m.
Last season: did not play
Coaches: Frank Hepler (WF); Bryan Gray (EH)
Players to watch: QB Lance Baker, RB Ben Emert, RB Ethan Shirley (WF); QB Desmon Gardner, WR Kiante Young (EH)
Outlook: Gardner scored a pair of touchdowns last week to lead the Vikings to their first win of the year, a double-overtime escape at Gilmer. These teams come in having experienced very different seasons so far, but this is essentially a fresh start for both, with each team’s playoff hopes hinging on five subregion games. A win for West could set up a battle for first place next Friday against Gainesville.
