Forsyth Central at North Atlanta
When, where: Tonight, 7:30 p.m., at Grady Stadium in Atlanta
Records, rankings: Central is 2-3, 0-2 in Region 7-AAAAA. Div. B and unranked in Class AAAAA; North Atlanta is 2-4, 0-3 and unranked.
Series history: Central leads 1-0.
Last meeting: Central won 7-0 in 2014.
What to know: This will be Central’s first region visit to Grady Stadium in midtown Atlanta. It’s another road trip, but possibly a much-needed one for the Bulldogs, who are reeling after following a 2-0 start with three straight losses.
North Atlanta will also be trying to snap a skid. The Warriors have dropped four in a row, with its most recent loss coming to the tune of 35-16 at home against Cambridge. In the previous three games, the Warriors only had 10 combined points. Offense and defense are issues for North Atlanta.
Central is still looking to get its rushing attack back to full strength after Shaun Diebel (58 carries, 208 yards) went down with an injury early last month. Sabrian Howard is only averaging 3.5 yards per carry, while quarterback Jagger Hartshorn has done his best to make an impact on the ground with 38 carries for 231 yards to this point.
