Friday night calls: Previews and predictions
Demopolis at Northridge
The Demopolis Tigers enter tonight’s game against 5A Northridge on a three-game shutout streak.
Demopolis defeated Dallas County 69-0 in their last game, which was played at home on September 10th.
Meanwhile, the Northridge Jaguars will play host to the Tigers after a 37-0 loss to Central-Tuscaloosa.
The Tigers go for four tonight in their first true test of the season against a 5A foe on the road.
My assumption is another Tiger blowout and a 4-0 record for Demopolis.
My prediction: Demopolis 49, Northridge 7
West Alabama Prep at South Choctaw Academy
The West Alabama Prep Titans come into tonight’s game fresh off a 48-8 victory over East Memorial.
The South Choctaw Academy Rebels lost 30-6 to Clarke Prep in their last game.
WAP aims to move to 3-1 on the season tonight on the road at 7:30 p.m.
My guess is that the Titans will come out victorious in a Friday night fight.
My prediction: West Alabama Prep 35, South Choctaw 14
John Essex at Francis Marion
The John Essex Hornets look to continue to sting after an 18-0 shutout over Carrollton on September 10th.
Francis Marion, meanwhile, knocked off Northside in a 48-12 landslide victory.
Both teams are looking to keep their winning streaks alive tonight at 7:30 p.m.

My prediction: A.L. Johnson 35, Fruitdale 21
Marengo at Sweet Water
Marengo enters tonight’s affair with Sweet Water after losing a close game, 27-20, to J.F. Shields.
The Sweet Water Bulldogs looks to improve on their 2-1 mark after blowing out Sunshine 61-16.
My guess is the water can only get sweeter after the Bulldogs move to 3-1.
My prediction: Sweet Water 56, Marengo 21
American Christian at Hale County
American Christian is thankful to remain undefeated after winning a nail-biter, 34-28, over A.L. Johnson in double overtime.

Look for American Christian to remain undefeated and climb the charts in the top 10 for 1A.
My prediction: American Christian 42, Hale County 14
Sumter County at Choctaw County
Sumter County aims to pick up a win after barely losing, 12-7, in their previous game to West Blocton.
Meanwhile, Choctaw County got blown out, 59-6, against the highly touted UMS-Wright.
Nothing against Sumter County, but my assumption is that Choctaw County will come out on top in tonight’s game.
My prediction: Choctaw County 21, Sumter County 8
Greensboro at Thomasville
Greensboro heads to Thomasville tonight after a 28-14 loss to Jemison in their previous game on September 10th.
The Thomasville Tigers, definite favorites in tonight’s affair, beat up on Gulf Shores in a 53-17 victory.
Look for the Tigers to stay hot and on top tonight in Thomasville.
My prediction: Thomasville 49, Greensboro 21

The 2A R.C. Hatch Bobcats hit the road for Goshen tonight after a 44-6 loss against Calera.
The 1A Goshen Eagles will host tonight’s game after inching by McKenzie in a 7-6 victory.
Tonight’s game should be a close one, but look for R.C. Hatch to close the door in the fourth quarter.
My prediction: R.C. Hatch 17, Goshen 7
Marion Military Institute at Wilcox
Marion Military Institute heads to Wilcox tonight after a 21-14 loss to Sumter Academy.
Meanwhile, Wilcox won 28-14 over Tuscaloosa Academy and looks to keep the win streak alive tonight when they host the Tigers.
My prediction: Wilcox 35, Marion Military Institute 21

East Memorial, the newest edition to the AISA level, enters tonight’s game against Southern Academy after falling 48-8 to West Alabama Prep.
Southern Academy is coming off a bye-week and aims to remain undefeated tonight when they host the Wildcats.
It probably won’t be pretty for East Memorial as the Cougars move to 3-0.
