Broughton (1-5, 1-1)
at WF-Rolesville (6-0, 2-0)
Broughton will face an undefeated team for the second straight week. Wake Forest-Rolesville, ranked No. 4 by The N&O among area teams, has dominated opponents on both ends of the field this year.
Chapel Hill (5-1)
at Cardinal Gibbons (5-0)
No. 6 Cardinal Gibbons enters Carolina 6 conference play after two wins by more than 30 points to remain undefeated. No. 19 Chapel Hill slipped from its previous No. 8 spot after taking its first loss Friday, a shutout against Carrboro.
Enloe (0-6, 0-2)
at Heritage (3-3, 1-1)
Enloe is still trying to find its footing under first-year coach Mike Massey, while Heritage will try to eclipse its 2011 win total in this game.
Sanderson (1-5, 0-2)
at Millbrook (1-5, 0-2 )
Sanderson looks to bounce back from a 55-7 loss to Heritage. Millbrook fell in the second half of last week’s matchup after scoring first and sticking with a rolling Wakefield team for much of the game.
at Leesville Road (5-0)
This will be a battle of undefeated teams that will likely affect the race for this year’s conference crown. Only one other Cap Eight team, Wake Forest-Rolesville, is still undefeated.
Both squads are ranked in the top three among area squads and No. 3 Leesville Road coach Chad Smothers said the matchup against No. 2 Wakefield will be a challenge.
Wakefield was matched for the first time this year early on, going into halftime tied with Millbrook before putting together a commanding second half to win 54-21 last week. Leesville Road’s defense, which has held opponents to just 13.4 points this season, may have an answer for Wakefield’s high-powered offense, but the Wolverines have topped 50 points in the past three games.
Leesville Road came out on top of a thrilling, high-scoring contest when the two teams met last year.
