My Big Ticket games this week:
1. SOUTH POINTE AT NORTHWESTERN
Playoff, region and Top 10 implications. What else could we ask for in a Game of the Week Big Ticket? That’s what you get Friday night when the No. 4 South Pointe Stallions travel to take on the No. 2 Northwestern Trojans.
There is little doubt that the winner will be in the driver’s seat for the Region 3-4A crown.
2. AIRPORT AT SWANSEA
Swansea is new and improved; Airport is not the same team, either. Airport needs a win to keep the wheels on the cart after tough losses to White Knoll and A.C. Flora.
3. HARTSVILLE AT MARLBORO COUNTY
There are big region implications from two favorites in the tough, Region 6-3A. Hartsville is rolling up big numbers on the ground while Marlboro County is coming off the biggest upset in the state, over Dillon.
