This week’s high school football games

Game of the week

Undefeated Wakefield faces a strong challenge for the second straight week as it travels to Millbrook for a Cap Eight 4A game.

The Wolverines’ defense stepped up at the end of a 32-26 victory over Wake Forest last week to preserve the victory, holding the Cougars to 6 yards on a fourth-and-7 play deep in Wakefield territory in the closing minutes.

Millbrook’s only conference loss was to Wake Forest. The Wildcats’ defense has been outstanding, and running back Marcus Marshall rushed for 197 yards in last week’s 34-13 win over Broughton.

Wakefield will have league games left against Broughton, Heritage and Leesville Road after Friday’s game.
