WHERE: District Three Stadium, Rock Hill
WHEN: 7:30 tonight
RECORDS: Hartsville 10-2, Northwestern 7-5
THE SKINNY: Northwestern is rolling at the right time. The Trojans lost their first four games but have gone 6-1 since. Hartsville finds itself on the road for this game because the Red Foxes lost to Sumter for the Region 6 championship.
ROBERT JOSEPH (NORTHWESTERN): Caught 108 passes during the regular season to break the old state record of 103. That included a state-record 22 catches in a 30-23 victory against Gaffney that gave Northwestern the Region 3-4A championship.
DRE SCOTT (HARTSVILLE): Running back has gained 1,581 yards and scored 17 rushing touchdowns this season. He averages 9.2 yards per carry.
NORTHWESTERN WILL WIN IF ... The Trojans are able to move the ball through the air against Hartsville as easily as Sumter did two weeks ago.
HARTSVILLE WILL WIN IF ... The Red Foxes use their running game, which averages 310 yards per game, to control the clock and limit Northwestern's quick-strike offense from getting chances to score.
