Salina Central (0-6) at Maize (5-1) – 7 p.m.
Salina Central continues to look for their first win of the 2016 season.

Central is 0-3 in league play, while Maize is 2-1, their lone loss coming at the hand of the Derby Panthers back in Week 3.
Salina South (0-6) VS. Derby (6-0) – 7 p.m.
Much like their crosstown rivals, the Salina South continue to search for their first win of the season. Trying to get that win this week will be a daunting task as the Cougars host an undefeated Derby team at Salina Stadium Friday night.

Sacred Heart (2-4) VS. Smith Center (4-2) – 7 p.m.

Ell-Saline (3-3) at Republic County (2-4) – 7 p.m.
Also looking to get back on the winning side of things are the Cardinals of Ell-Saline.

St. John’s Military (0-5) VS. St. Mary’s Academy (4-0) – 7 p.m.
The St. John’s Military Muleskinners are another school in search of their first win of the season and getting that win will be a tough task Friday Night when the Muleskinners host the undefeated St. Mary’s Academy Crusaders.
