Jacksonville at D.H. Conley:
The Conley Vikings could all but wrap up a playoff spot with a win at home over Winless Jacksonville. Conley was winless last season but have been revived under first year head coach Brian Paschal.
Washington at South Central:
Both teams are 4-1 and tied for second place in the Coastal Conference. The winner locks down the number two spot since league leader Havelock has beaten both teams head to head.
