There are a dozen games on the football schedule for Friday night as Rock Hill region teams make more preparations for region play. Fourteen local schools will see action this week.
Gaffney (1-2) at Northwestern (4-0)
Northwestern has been impressive on both sides of the ball in the first four weeks. Their offense has been balanced and explosive, and their defense has been solid. Gaffney will need to slow down the Northwestern offense and control the ball. Gaffney comes to the game after losing last week to Mallard Creek of Charlotte.
