Northern Guilford(1-0) at Page(1-0)….Three INT’s last week for NG’s Christian Herbin and Page Defense is very tough led by Alan Tisdale…This is our “Murphy Wainer Game of the Week”, on Greensboro Sports Radio 1….Click On GreensboroSports Radio to get this game tonight with Dennis White….
Southern Guilford(0-1) at High Point Central(1-0)….HP Central led by Curt Ervin and QB John Saunders Jr. and SG looking to start freshman Myles Crisp at QB…Click On GreensboroSports Radio and go to GreensboroSports Radio 2 to get this game tonight with Kris Walser and Coach Daryl Steele….
Smith(0-1) at Southeast Guilford(1-0)….Two solid QB’s on the field with Ryan Douglas from SEG and Jordan Williams, the sophomore, will lead Ben L. Smith….Jaylen Guy might be ready to fly tonight for SEG, have not heard much out of him yet and it might be his time..
Wyatt Smith covering this game tonight for GreensboroSports.com….
Western Guilford(0-1) at Northwest Guilford(1-0)….WG has some stability with Edrick Purnell at QB and NWG has weapons on ‘O’ with Leonard, Turner, Andrews and Cloud and that might be too much for WG to handle….
Dudley(1-0) at Ragsdale(1-0)….Dudley coming at you hard with QB Gerald Simpson and you add in DJ Crossen, Zariek Rush, Nigel Fitzgerald and about a half dozen linemen and it could be a long night for the Ragsdale Tigers….Devan Boykin, Malachi Manness, Tre Goode and RHS will need some sort of divine intervention or divine invention to get past Dudley tonight….
Grimsley(0-1) at Asheboro(0-1)…Grimsley still smarting from that loss to Northern Guilford last Friday, must jump on Asheboro from the time GHS gets off the bus….The Blue Comets can score quickly and the Blue and White from Grimsley, but be sure that they show up on time tonight and never look back….Tough task down near the ZOO this evening….
Cedar Ridge(1-0) at Eastern Guilford(1-0)….Cedar Ridge coached by former EG head coach Scott Loosemore and he has his Fighting Red Wolves ready and last week his game stopped with 3:29 in 2nd Q due to weather in a win over Carrboro….EG has the team that others would like to mirror and tonight if you are Cedar Ridge, you might not like what you are seeing, as Cedar looks into that mirror and sees the 2017 EG Wildcats..
High Point Christian Academy(1-0) at Ravenscroft(1-0)….Ned Gonet, the former Duke Blue Devil RB has been coaching Ravenscroft for about 30 years and he might just have the edge tonight vs. the HPCA Cougars….
Trinity(1-0) at Bishop McGuinness(0-1)….Trinity comes in with a win and sometimes that is enough to carry you from Week One to Week Two, unless the opponent you beat was weak and Trinity stopped Calvin Brown’s Providence Grove Patriots last Friday night, while Bishop fell to Wilkes Central….
+++++from Thursday night:Southwest Guilford 20, High Point Andrews 6

Northeast Guilford(0-1) OFF
*****Some big games around the state tonight:Scotland County vs. Durham Hillside…Mallard Creek vs. Matthews Butler….Wake Forest vs. Richmond County…*****

  • eg parent said,

    Eastern Guilford get back one of Graves favorite weapons tonight at receiver(Justin Matthews)from injury.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Good crew and good hands with Matthews, McMullen, Zaccheus Milton and the chart buster, Nic Cheeley…

    EG’s got talent….

  • Hsfan said,

    Grimsley needs to show up tonight. Too many mistakes last week. Center quarterback exchange needs to tighten up. Plus there senior leadership.

  • John Allen said,

    East Davidson beat Providence Grove last week. Trinity won by forfeit over South Davidson.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Interesting on Trinity….

    We should have called Ron Davidson over in Davidson County for the take away, but we are glad John Allen was there to give us the rebound…

    Thanks…
