Football: Mallard Creek vs. Hopewell Home
7:00 PM at Hopewell. Mallard Creek (5-0, 1-0) at Hopewell (1-4, 0-1). Mallard Creek won 42-0 last season. Players to watch: Mallard Creek – QB James Smith, RB Jaylen Samuels, K Tyus Lopez; Hopewell – WR/RB Dominique Heath, RB Dimitris Camp, WR Logan Chester. THE SKINNY: Mallard Creek is a contender for a state championship, so Hopewell will need to play its best game. The Titans were thwarted by turnovers in a loss to Hough last week, and their pass coverage was leaky. But they did move the ball most of the game. Heath is one of the area’s top receivers.
