It’s Week 6 of the football season and one of the local games includes an 11-man team with only four games under its belt so far.
Windsor didn’t schedule a game last week, which would have been its matchup with Sacred Heart.
Since the Gremlins play 8-man, Windsor was marked down for a 13-0 win to give the Greyhounds district points.
Windsor has lost three straight games since opening the season with a 38-14 win at Sweet Springs.
Windsor travels to Cole Camp on Friday to take on the Bluebirds, who have won two straight to recover from a 48-7 blowout loss at Lockwood in Week 3.
Cole Camp is on a short week with last week’s game being played Monday because of weather on Friday.
The Bluebirds fell behind 13-0 at Sherwood, but came back to win 16-13.
Like last season, the Bluebirds are battling to get out of the bottom half of the district standings, despite having a wining record. Cole Camp sits sixth out of eight teams.
Windsor is sixth out of seven teams in its district.
Tipton at Lincoln
Tipton and Lincoln have had vastly different seasons so far.
Lincoln is ranked seventh in Class 1 with a 5-0 record and is battling for a top seed in districts.
Tipton is in fifth in the same district with a 2-3 record and is coming off a 47-0 loss at Father Tolton.
Tipton won this matchup at home last season, 26-12, but Lincoln has outscored its opponents 246-29 so far this season.
Knob Noster at Lexington
The Knob Noster Panthers nearly snapped its 23-game losing streak last week against Carrollton.
The Panthers were down 16-14 before a lightning delay, but Carrollton outscored Knob Noster 22-0 after the game resumed to put the losing skid at 24 games.
The Panthers play at undefeated Lexington on Friday, a game that ended up 40-0 in favor of the Minutemen last season.
Hallsville at Warsaw
Like Knob Noster, the Warsaw Wildcats are trying to break an extensive losing streak.
Warsaw has lost 11 straight games, with its last win coming in Week 4 of last season.
The Wildcats host Hallsville, which has been shut out two straight weeks.
Hallsville won its first three games of the season.
Santa Fe at Sweet Springs
Sweet Springs and Santa Fe both enter Friday’s game on a two-game winning streak.
The Greyhounds beat Wentworth 56-26 in Week 4 and defeated Orrick 20-6 on the road last week.
Sweet Springs will try to even up its record when it hosts Santa Fe, which is 3-2 on the season.
Santa Fe beat Sweet Springs 35-26 last season.
Sacred Heart at Northwest
The two area 8-man teams will meet up in Hughesville on Friday.
Sacred Heart visits Northwest with Sacred Heart looking to snap a two-game skid and Northwest hoping for its first varsity win of the season.
The Mustangs came as close as they have all season to getting a win last week in a 42-34 loss at Chilhowee.
