Preview: A.L. Brown at Northwest Cabarrus

nTime: 7:30 p.m.
nRecords: A.L. Brown 8-1, 5-0 SPC; Northwest Cabarrus 6-2, 4-1 SPC
nSeries: Has been just about all Wonders. They lead their neighbors 35-3-1, so their series edge is probably secure for at least for the rest of this century.
Northwestís most recent win came in 1976, but that was an unusual year. Among other things, voters elected Jimmy Carter.
nLast meeting: It was a battle in 2010. The Wonders won at home 20-13 with Martel Campbell running for two TDs and throwing a scoring pass to Teven Jones.
nLast week: A.L. Brown smashed Hickory Ridge 47-0 in a game that was over after the first quarter. Northwest had no trouble with Central Cabarrus, putting up its biggest offensive numbers of the season in a 55-12 romp.
nNext week: The Wondersí schedule is loaded toward the back end. They play Concord at home next. Northwest finishes at home against new rival Cox Mill.
nGame notes: Northwest is a competent team that has taken care of business against the bottom of the SPC. The lone league loss for the Trojans was a hard-fought one with Concord.
QB Colby Williford gives the Cougars a passing threat. Jalen Caldwell is a solid running back. Shrine Bowl pick and Clemson commitment Bradley Pinion puts his kickoffs in the end zone, but the Trojans arenít likely to kick off often tonight.
A.L. Brown is back at full strength with the return of Shrine Bowl back Damien Washington, and the Wonders have been an offensive buzz-saw just about all season.
QB Brandon Eppinger has 19 TD passes. Rashon Preston protects him. DB Kenon Jones is part of a defense that owns four shutouts.
