For the first time this season all five local teams will be in action on Friday night.
Charles Henderson, Pike Liberal Arts, Pike County, Goshen and Zion Chapel will all have an opportunity to hit the field on Friday night.
Either due to COVID concerns or a bye week, there has not been a full slate of local games thus far this season. Goshen had their opener cancelled in week one and the Patriots had their game against Crenshaw Christian cancelled due to COVID concerns within the Cougar problem. Pike County had a bye last Friday night.
This week the Bulldogs return to action to play in their regular season opener against Beulah.
The Bulldogs fell to Charles Henderson in their annual jamboree game prior to their bye week.
Beulah comes into the contest coming off a loss to Cleburne County last Friday night.

The Colts are coming off a 43-13 loss to Edgewood last Friday night.

The Charles Henderson Trojans fell to Montgomery Catholic Friday night in their season opener. They travel to Greenville to take on the Tigers this Friday night. The Tigers are coming off a 14-12 win over Blount last Friday night.
