Augusta at Horizon Christian

When, where: Saturday, 7:30 p.m., at Bennett Park in Cumming.

Records, rankings: Augusta is 0-2 overall and 0-0 in the Glory For Christ Football league; Horizon is 1-0 and 0-0 in the GICAA II Region 1.

Series history: First meeting.

Last meeting: None.

What to know: At first glance, this appears to be a different kind of Horizon Christian team, much different than the ones that won just two games combined the past two seasons. Last season, the Warriors lost to Nathanael Greene Academy 40-6 in their season-opener. Last week, Horizon dominated Greene in a 26-0 victory in a game that was ended after three quarters because of lightning.

The arrival of quarterback Jacob Grinstead appears to be the big difference-maker. He passed for 135 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another against Greene. Ty Logan was his primary target, finishing with three catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns. They could have their way with Augusta, who lost 37-7 to Greene on Aug. 14 and has been outscored 82-14 in its two games.
