Forsyth County News

When, where: Tonight, 7:30 p.m., at Northview Stadium in Duluth.

Records, rankings: North is 1-1, 1-0 in Region 6-AAAAAA and unranked in Class AAAAAA; Northview is 2-0, 1-0 in Region 6-AAAAAA and unranked in Class AAAAAA.

Series history: North  leads 3-2.

Last meeting: Northview won 49-0 in 2014.

What to know: Alright, so North Forsyth has done some good things. After falling short by less than 10 points against potent Cherokee in the season opener, the Raiders proved their offensive evolution from the first game wasn’t a fluke, putting 37 up in a 10-point victory against Chattahoochee on the road last week. The playmaking backfield tandem of Simon Holcomb and Cody Dwyer has been one of the county’s top trends to this point in the early going, and—wouldn’t you know it—Jacob Bailey is throwing the football and making those throws count.

This is a big test against the Titans. Northview is 2-0 under Chad Davenport and put 54 points up last week at Habersham Central. It will also be Northview’s home opener tonight, so North will have to be ready to play the spoiler role.
