Battle Ground Academy (3-0) at Westview (0-3), 7 p.m. Friday

The undefeated Battle Ground Academy Wildcats should have no fears in keeping their perfect season going in Week 4.

The Wildcats travel Friday to Westview to take on a Chargers team that has struggled on both sides of the ball through three weeks. Westview has given up 129 points in three games, while it has scored just 22.

While the Chargers have struggled offensively and defensively, BGA has looked stout on both sides so far. The Wildcats are averaging 32 points per game while giving up just seven.

Quarterback Drew Martin will hope to continue his strong play for BGA. He hasn’t been picked off yet this season, while accumulating 531 yards and six touchdowns through the air.

GCA (0-2) at Summertown (3-0), 7 p.m. Friday

If the Grace Christian Academy Lions are going to get into the win column for the first time this season, they will have to do so by beating the undefeated Summertown Eagles.

The Lions have suffered two close losses to start the season after a bye in Week 1. They lost a last-minute contest in Week 2 to McEwen before falling 35-28 last week against Cornersville.

Summertown comes into this week hot offensively. Over their first three games, the Eagles have averaged 42.6 points per game and have outscored their opponents by an average of 19 points per game.

GCA will lean on quarterback Austin Amor to help guide an offense that has averaged 30.5 points per game this season.

In last year’s matchup, the Lions squeaked out a 15-8 win at home.

Forrest (3-0) at Page (1-1), 7 p.m. Friday

Friday’s matchup between the Page Patriots and Forrest Rockets features two teams that won their first district games in Week 3 by a point apiece.

Both squads step out of district play this week in a game that could go down to the wire after last year’s contest was decided by just two points.

Quarterback Jacob Van Landingham and running back Bubba Johnson will look to carry over momentum from Page’s win last week against Spring Hill. In that game, Van Landingham threw for 148 yards while Johnson had 109 yards on the ground with two touchdowns.

Forrest will counter with an offense built around a dynamic running game. Last week in their win against Westmoreland, 10 different Rockets had at least one carry.

A win on Friday could set up the Patriots with momentum as they enter back into district play in Week 5 at Lawrence County.
