Forsyth County News

When, where: Tonight, 7:30 p.m., at Robertson Field in Marietta.

Records, rankings: Pinecrest is 1-0, 0-0 in Region 6-A, Div. B and unranked in Class A; Walker is 1-1, 0-0 in Region 6-A, Div. A and unranked in Class A.

Series history: Pinecrest leads 1-0.

Last meeting: Pinecrest won 42-14 in 2014.

What to know: Last season Walker defeated Kings Ridge for one of its two wins, and the Wolverines did the same when it squeaked by the Tigers by one point to get its first win. It’s been tough sledding the past few years for Walker, whose 11-1 in 2012 seems like a distant memory at this point.

Meanwhile, Pinecrest should still be feeling great after a 42-14 romp of North Springs from Class AAAAA in its season opener two weeks ago. The question will be if quarterback Ryan McCarthy, tailback Mitchell Ojeda and company are feeling refreshed and rested or a little rusty after taking a week off. Now jumping back into Class A play, it almost feels like the real season for the Paladins begins today.
