Pike Eastern Eagles at Hannan Wildcats


Last Meeting: None.


Current head-to-head streak: N/A


Five things to note:


1. This is Eastern’s first ever varsity football game. The Eagles officially began varsity football next season.


2. Hannan won its final game of the season last year over Hundred by a 46-0 count in Ashton.


3. It has been over 10 years since Hannan began the season with a victory.


4. Eastern was 6-1 in junior varsity competition last season.

Point Pleasant Big Blacks at Lincoln County Panthers


Last Meeting between teams: August 30, 2013 Point Pleasant won 70-14 in Point Pleasant.


Current head-to-head streak: Point Pleasant has won 1 straight


Five things to note:


1. Point Pleasant has made six straight postseason appearances but the Big Blacks will have to replace last year’s seniors including the program’s all-time touchdown leader Chase Walton and kicker Colin Peal who made 57-of-60 extra-point kicks last season.


2. Point Pleasant has won 14 regular season games in a row. The Big Blacks’ last regular season loss came at Oak Hill by a 34-14 count on October 5, 2012.


3. The Panthers’ last victory over a class AAA school 26-21 over host St. Albans on October 20th 2011. Lincoln County’s last victory came against Class A Sherman in the final game of 2011 season by a 66-0 count.


4. The lone loss for the 2013 Big Blacks was to visiting Wheeling Park by a 28-7 count in week two of the postseasons.


5. Lincoln County failed to win for the second straight season last year and the Panthers have lost 10 straight games in Hamlin. LCHS graduated 18 seniors last year.


Wahama White Falcons at Ravenswood Red Devils


Last Meeting between the teams: None since 2001


Current head-to-head streak: N/A


Five things to note:


1. The White Falcons haven’t lost a regular season non-league game since joining the Tri-Valley Conference in 2010. Wahama’s last non-conference regular season loss came to Athens in the 10th week of the 2009 season.


2. Wahama has began the season with a win seven seasons in a row with its last season opening loss coming at Waterford by a 12-0 count on August 25, 2006. The Red and White have opened the year away from Bachtel Stadium only twice in the last seven years.


3. This year’s group of White Falcons has some big shoes to fill as 64 of the 72 regular season touchdowns scored by last season’s squad were marked by graduating seniors. Last year’s seniors also accounted for 2,804 of the team’s 3371 regular season rushing yards and all but 65 of the team’s 975 regular season receiving yards.


4. The last time Wahama took on a Class AA opponent was 2008 when the White Falcons defeated Liberty 54-20 in Mason. Ravenswood played two Class A teams last season, losing to both Williamstown and St. Mary’s.


5. Wahama will look to ruin the Red Devils’ party as Ravenswood is celebrating the beginning of their 100th football season.
