South Johnston (4-3) and West Johnston (2-5) take on one another this Friday at 7:30 PM on South Johnston's home turf. South Johnston has had difficulty moving the ball in its last five games, so hopefully it can find a way to get more yardage this week.
Last game was the first rocky defensive outing for South Johnston this year. It simply didn't have it last week, losing 42 - 7 to Clayton. Unfortunately, South Johnston could not reproduce its 41-point effort from the game before, which might not have made for a win but would have at least kept things closer. Meanwhile, West Johnston battled it out with Smithfield-Selma last week for a well-earned 34 - 27 overtime victory.
The last time they met, West Johnston was the decided 35 - 0 victor. This time, their match is expected to be much closer since they have similar state rankings (South Johnston at 361st, West Johnston at 342nd). Will South Johnston avenge its loss? We'll find out soon enough.
