The Cougars come into the game with an 8-3 record, while the Warriors are 9-2. Weddington is ranked 5th in the state, while Chambers is ranked 14th.
The Cougars have a high-powered offense, averaging 39.8 points per game. They are led by senior quarterback Ryan Wright, who has thrown for over 3,000 yards and 35 touchdowns this season. Wright is also a threat on the ground, rushing for over 500 yards and 10 touchdowns. Chambers also has a solid running game, led by senior running back Matt Cassidy.
The Warriors have a balanced offense, averaging 39.4 points per game. They are led by senior quarterback Micah Ford, who has thrown for over 2,500 yards and 25 touchdowns this season. Ford is also a threat on the ground, rushing for over 400 yards and 15 touchdowns. Weddington also has a solid running game, led by senior running back Landyn Collins.
Both defenses are playing at a high level, with Chambers allowing just 25.7 points per game and Weddington allowing just 21.3 points per game.
This is sure to be a close game between two evenly matched teams. Chambers will need to find a way to slow down the Warriors’ passing game and force turnovers. Weddington will need to protect the football and capitalize on their scoring opportunities.
This is the first time that the two teams have met on the gridiron.
