FCS hosts Clarksville NW
Open dates and fall break schedule changes have resulted in just two local football teams being in action tonight as Friendship Christian School plays host to Clarksville Northwest and Lebanon High travels to Williamson County to play defending Class 6A state champion Ravenwood.
The Commanders and and Vikings kick off at 7 p.m. at Pirtle Field.
Friendship, 3-3 overall, comes in after closing out Mt. Juliet Christian Academy 28-0 a week ago -- the second consecutive shutout for the Commander defensive unit.
Offensively, FCS has been a ball-control unit, relying on the running game while alternating two quarterbacks -- Colt Mahoney and Braden Reece.
Clarksville Northwest sports a record of 4-3 after winning three of the last four week's -- including a 34-27 victory at Kenwood Sept. 30.
The Class 4A Vikings come in averaging just a shade over 27 points per contest.
Lebanon visits Ravenwood
Lebanon and Ravenwood kickoff at 7 p.m. with live radio coverage beginning at 6:30 p.m. on WANT FM-98.9 and online at wantfm.com.
The Blue Devils stand 1-5 overall and 0-3 in Region 3, 6A following last week's 62-26 home loss to Wilson Central.
While Coach Sam Harp's squad has showed measured offensive improvement as the season has progressed, defense continues to be a major issue -- allowing 37.8 points per came.
Ravenwood enters tonight's contest 3-3 overall and comes off a 30-12 victory over McGavock a week ago -- a win that snapped a modest two-game losing streak for the Raptors.
The Ravenwood program is being re-tooled under the direction of first year head coach Richie Wessman.
The Raptors went 14-1 a year ago and defeated Maryville in the state title game, but lost 35 seniors to graduation and head coach Will Hester resigned to build a new program at Nolensville High School.
