Friday’s Preview/Schedule

Broughton at Heritage, 6:30 p.m. – If the weather isn’t too much of an issue, this CAP 7 4A game could feature offensive fireworks. Broughton has an excellent WR corps, and Heritage is led by QB Cade Cunningham.

Cary at Green Hope, 6:30 p.m. – The host Falcons hope their experienced and strong defense can help them contend in the Triangle 4A. The Imps feature senior QB-WR Talli Price, one of the leading receivers from their 2019 team.

East Wake at Rolesville, 6:30 p.m. – The 3A Warriors visit 4A Rolesville, which is led by QB Byrum Brown, coming off a 2,400-yard passing season.

Holly Springs at South Garner, 6:30 p.m. – Holly Springs is among the South Wake Athletic 4A favorites, thanks to RB’s Derek coombs and Dylan Waskey. The host Titans were 1-9 in 2019 but have 18 starters back.

Millbrook at Southeast Raleigh, 7 p.m. – The host Bulldogs’ defense will get a test in this CAP 7 4A game from an explosive Millbrook offense featuring WR’s Ethan Lentz and Wesley Grimes.

Panther Creek at Jordan, 7 p.m. – This Triangle 4A game features two of the Triangle’s top defensive players – Panther Creek CB Chase Hatley and Jordan DE Vincent Anthony Jr.

Riverside at Green Level, 5:30 p.m. – It’s the varsity debut for Green Level, which won’t have a senior class until next year. The Gators’ junior varsity was 9-1 in 2019. Riverside QB Landin Sledge passed for more than 3,700 yards in 2019.

Outside Wake County

Northern Durham at Southern Durham, 7 p.m. – This could be the biggest game of the season in the Big 8 3A, and it could be high-scoring. WR Caleb Steele and TE Kris Herring are among the visiting Knights’ top scoring threats, while the Spartans counter with QB Omari Smith.

East Duplin at Princeton, 2 p.m. Saturday – Princeton, a 1A school coming off a 10-2 season, has only six returning starters. The Bulldogs didn’t do themselves any favors here, as East Duplin made the 2A playoffs in 2019 and typically are a solid club.
