West Ashley (4-0) at Summerville (3-1)
LAST YEAR: Summerville won, 45-33.
COACHES: Bobby Marion, West Ashley; John McKissick, Summerville.
NOTABLE: The Wildcats are seeking their first 5-0 start since the school opened in 2000. They will battle a Summerville team that last week posted 36 points in a victory over Wando, but managed only 270 yards in total offense as coach McKissick won his 605th career victory. The Green Wave is 13-1 all-time vs. the Wildcats.
KEEP AN EYE ON: West Ashley junior running back Marquize Jenkins. He rushed for 91 yards and 3 TDs in last week’s win over Colleton County.
DID YOU KNOW: Coach McKissick celebrated his 87th birthday on Wednesday.
Timberland (3-1) at Berkeley (1-3)
LAST YEAR: Berkeley won, 21-20.
COACHES: Art Craig, Timberland; Jeff Cruce, Berkeley.
NOTABLE: Timberland has been impressive since losing its season opener 44-0 to Class AAA power Hanahan. The Wolves have outscored their last three foes by a 106-18 margin. Berkeley needs a victory after dropping a 33-9 decision to Manning. The Stags are allowing 29.5 points per game.
KEEP AN EYE ON: Timberland’s Matt Gable. He can play quarterback, wide receiver and punter. He also is a threat to run the football.
DID YOU KNOW: Berkeley leads the all-time series, 10-2.
Stratford (4-0) at Colleton County (1-3)
LAST YEAR: Stratford won, 62-0.
COACHES: Ray Stackley, Stratford; Chris Collins, Colleton County.
NOTABLE: Stratford faces an improved Colleton County team. The Cougars ended a 34-game losing streak two weeks ago and lost to undefeated West Ashley by seven last week. Stratford, No. 8 in the latest state poll, is led by Jacob Park, who has passed for 1,270 yards and 12 TDs. The Knights’ defense has allowed 78 points in four games.
KEEP AN EYE ON: Stratford wide receivers Tyree Scroggins and Thad Thompson. They have combined for 33 catches for 835 yards and 7 TDs.
DID YOU KNOW: Stratford is 11-1 all-time against Colleton County.
