Bunn (1-2) at
Corinth Holders (2-1), 7:30 p.m.
Corinth Holders’ improvement on defense has been one of the biggest factors in its impressive start – two wins and a narrow loss to 3-0 Clayton. That unit gets a big challenge here from the Wildcats, which feature one of the fastest groups of running backs around.
Last Year: Bunn, 40-15
Knightdale (2-1) at
Enloe (0-2), 7 p.m.
Enloe continues to hunt for its first win of the season after a 39-0 loss at Southeast Raleigh last week. The Knights are looking for a more convincing win than the combined 15-point margin they posted in the first two weeks of the season. They are also trying to get back on track after a 1-point loss to Heritage last Friday.

East Wake (1-2) at
Heritage (2-1), 7 p.m.
East Wake came out on the bad end of a last-minute drive by Millbrook last Friday, marking a second straight loss for the Warriors. Heritage is coming off a statement win over East Wake’s top rival, Knightdale. Both teams have made it clear they won’t go out without a fight. This one has the markings of a good matchup.
East Wake Head Coach
“It was a little frustrating because we opened up with a great drive and ended up getting stopped on the 3-yard line. Then we spent the next two quarters trying to figure out what our offense meant. From our last two games, what we’ve got to come to grips with is our kicking coverage is nowhere where it needs to be. We’ve given up two returns for 95 yards in the last two games. We can’t allow our defense to be disheartened on Friday night. We’ve got to reassess our personnel and our philosophy.”
