A week after Grundy and J.I. Burton each squeaked out victories in week seven, the slate does not clear up for either team.
The two will meet up in Norton on Friday in the latest edition of the CoalfieldSports.com Game of the Week.
The contest has high implications on how the 1D playoff standings will shake out at season’s end.
There is also much familiarity between these two squads. The Golden Wave took home a win in last season’s regular season matchup, while the Raiders ended Grundy’s season in a rematch at Nelson Memorial Stadium in the first round of the playoffs.… Read the rest

A win over Craig County would move the Panthers to their best start in school history with a 4-1 record.

The past two weeks in Buchanan County have been filled with talks about how Grundy tailback Gabe Fiser has broken the school record for rushing yards in a game in back to back weeks.
However, after Grundy’s 43-14 win over Lebanon, there was a lot of chatter about Golden Wave WR/DB Jake McCoy.
