Friday’s high school football games list.

Game of the week: Hillside at Northern Durham, 7 p.m.

If anyone is going to challenge Hillside (4-4) atop the PAC-6 4A, it probably is going to be Northern Durham (2-6). The Knights dropped their first six games to strong teams, but are 2-0 in the league. Hillside also played strong opposition early and dropped four of its first five.
