North Forsyth vs Creekview: Grizzlies looking to hold the Raiders at bay






Scouting the Raiders


The North Forsyth Raiders will look to get back into the win column this week and avenge last season’s loss to Creekview. The Raiders offense has been relatively balanced this season averaging 105 yards per game through the air and 137 yards per game on the ground. Quarterback Elijah Seaney has thrown for 315 yards and 3-TDs while Darron Parry and Jacob Shirley have combined to rush for 340 yards and 4-TDs. It’s been Cole Smith serving as the Raiders primary target with 14 receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown. Senior linebacker Brody Hancock leads the defense with two sacks on the year.



Scouting the Grizzlies


Creekview will be back on the road this week after they were outlasted by Calhoun last week. The turnover bug bit the Grizzlies last week and of they are going to get back in the win column, they are going to have to find ways to protect the football, especially on the road. Quarterback Austin Guest continues to show his value as both a passer and a runner as the junior signal caller is over 300 yards rushing and 400 yards passing on the season. He’s also accounted for 9-TDs. Sophomore Mason Munn counties to serve as the workhorse on the ground for the offense with over 40 carries on the season. Defensively, Linebackers Brant Freeman and Reed Anderson lead the team in solo and total tackles through three weeks. The Grizzlies have recorded 13 sacks and are allowing 17 points per game.



Pundit's Pick


This is the final tune-up game for both teams before they start region play next week. If Creekview can win the turnover battle, we like their chances. Conversely, if Darron Parry and North Forsyth can get going, we believe the Raiders have a great chance of winning at home. Something tells us the Crekeview defense will be up to the challenge this week. Grizzlies by 8.
