The Dunwoody Wildcats look to even their Region 7-6A record as they host Northview on Friday night at North DeKalb Stadium.

Druid Hills, Dunwoody and Lakeside have the only homes in a light eight game football schedule for DeKalb County teams this weekend.

The Dunwoody Wildcats (2-2, 0-2) are looking to break a two-game losing streak and pick up a Region 7-6A victory as they host the Northview Titans (0-4, 0-2) at North DeKalb Stadium with kickoff set for 7:30 pm.

A 30-14 loss on the road to Chattahoochee last Friday night was closer than the score as the Wildcats continue to compete and build a program under Coach Mike Nash.

Three turnovers (2 fumbles, 1 interception) proved costly to the Wildcats. Quarterback Zac Pankey threw for 149 yards and a touchdown on 10 of 19 attempts while adding a rushing touchdown against Chattahoochee. Receiver Turner Nims hauled in four of Pankey’s passes for 102 yards and a touchdown.

Jeremiah Collier had 13 tackles and Thomas Neville had 11 tackles last week for the Wildcat defense.

Northview is coming off a 38-21 loss to John’s Creek (2-3, 2-1) as they invade North DeKalb Stadium on Friday.

Druid Hills (1-4, 0-1) is coming off a tough 12-0 loss to North Clayton (2-3, 1-0) last weekend as the Red Devils entertain the Eastside Eagles (4-1, 1-0) on Friday at 7:30 pm at Avondale Stadium.

Eastside is coming off a close 20-16 home victory over Oconee County last weekend and is one of the Region 4-4A leaders.

Lakeside (1-4, 0-1) hosts Central Gwinnett (3-2, 0-1) at 7:30 pm on Friday night at Adams Stadium.

The Vikings played undefeated Meadowcreek (5-0, 1-0) tough tied at 14-14 in the third quarter and down just 21-20 heading into the fourth quarter on a Max Guggemos touchdown run. Meadowcreek got touchdown runs of 77 yards and 43 yards by Chauncey Williams (30 carries, 315 yards, 5 TDs) early in the fourth quarter to pull away to a 42-28 win.

DeKalb’s Region 4-6A contingent of No. 1 ranked Tucker, Stephenson and Martin Luther King Jr. all go on the road on Friday.

Tucker (4-1, 2-0), 44-0 winner over King, travels Twelve Oaks Stadium for a 7:30 pm kickoff with Mundy’s Mill (0-5, 0-2) as the Tigers look to stay at the top of the region standings. Taurean Taylor had 151 yards rushing and three touchdowns in Tucker’s win over King.

Stephenson (3-2, 2-0) hopes to at least keep pace with Tucker as the Jaguars travel to Tara Stadium to take on Jonesboro (2-3, 1-1) at 7:30 pm. Stephenson scored on offense, defense and special teams in a 38-14 win over Mundy’s Mill last Friday.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Lions (2-3, 1-1) face off with Charles Drew (1-4, 0-2) at Southern Crescent Stadium on Friday at 7:30 pm in another Region 4-6A road game. The Lions look to bounce back from their loss to Tucker and continue a march to the playoffs for the first time since the 2013 season.

Drew is coming off a tough 41-39 loss to Lovejoy and is looking for its first region victory.

Cross Keys (0-1) goes on the road for just its second game of the season looking for a victory as they take on Patuala Charter on Friday at 5:15 pm. The two teams split their games in 2016.
