LAMBERT AT NORTH FORSYTH

When, where:  Tonight, 7:30 p.m., at Raider Valley in Cumming.

Records, rankings: Lambert is 1-3 overall, 0-1 in Region 6-AAAAAA and unranked in Class 6A; North is 4-0, 1-0 and unranked in Class 6A.

Series history: Lambert leads 1-0.

Last meeting: Lambert won 21-7 in 2012.

What to know: North Forsyth is on fire right now. The Raiders have scored 120 points and allowed just 33 points in four games, marking their best offensive start since 1999 and best defensive start since 2000.

The Raiders continue to find playmakers in their Double-Wing running attack. Jamal Davenport tallied 93 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries, while Zach Slaton racked up 71 yards last week against Chattahoochee.

Lambert finds itself in unfamiliar territory. The Longhorns have never started a season 1-3 and need to win this game to stay alive in the playoff picture. Only three teams made the playoffs in Class 6A after starting the season 1-4.
