Brook Hill Guard (1-0) at Garrrison Bulldogs (2-0)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Bulldog Stadium in Garrison
Coaches: Bobby Brasher, Brook Hill; Craig Barker, Garrison
Last Week: Brook Hill was idle. Garrison 17, Tenaha 10
Next Week: Spring Hill at Brook Hill; San Augustine at Garrison
Quick Take: Will be interesting to see how the Guard respond coming out of an extremely early bye week...First road game in the Brasher era as well...The Bulldogs are coming off of one of the state's biggest upsets last week, a win over top-ranked (Class A) Tenaha, and if Garrison in hangover mode, look for the Guard to cash in.
Alto Yellowjackets (1-1) at Tenaha Tigers (1-1)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Tiger Stadium in Tenaha
Coaches: Paul Gould, Alto; Terry Ward, Tenaha
Last Week: Alto 47, Groveton 27; Garrison 17, Tenaha 10
Next Week: Alto at Frankston; Tenaha at Pineland West Sabine
Quick Take: Alto was upset by Elkhart in Zero Week, with the Tigers losing unexpectedly last week to Garrison...Rivalry still should be intense and played before a standing-room only crown at Tiger Stadium...The Alto defensive line will have to play better to give the Mean Sting a chance in this one...The Tigers could muster just 136 yards on the ground last week, after rushing for in excess of 300 in the opener...The team that does the best job of stopping their opponent's ground game should come out on top on the scoreboard...Tenaha will be challenged to stop Alto's Jacolby Whitaker and Zac Sturns...The duo have scored 10 TDs so far this year.
