It’s High School Friday Night Week Five with some key region games on tap.
Hillcrest (4-0) visits Greenwood (1-3) to open play in Region 1-4A. A year ago, the Rams’ win over the Eagles helped propel them to an eventual Big 16 state title.
Also in the Emerald City, unbeaten Southside (4-0) visits Emerald in Peach Blossom 3A as the Tigers try getting to 5-0 for the first time in program history.
Spartanburg (4-0, Number 12 in the MaxPreps national poll) is home to Riverside while Byrnes (4-0, Number 20 in MaxPreps) visits Boiling Springs. Each tries to hold serve to set up and unbeaten, nationally-ranked showdown next week in Duncan.
We’ll see you on High School Friday Night at 11pm on Channel 7 and Sports Xtra at 11:35pm on the Carolinas CW62.
