LACE 'EM UP

In Durham, PAC-6 4-A co-leaders Northern (2-6, 2-0 PAC-6) and Hillside (5-2, 2-0 PAC-6) meet at Hillside’s Russell Blunt Stadium at 7 p.m., but Hillside is a prohibitive favorite despite Northern’s two-game win streak. The Northern-Hillside matchup is one of only two between league leaders tonight. ... In Louisburg, Tar-Roanoke 1-A Conference co-leaders Granville Central (5-3, 2-0 T-R) and Louisburg (5-3, 2-0 T-R) lace ’em up. ... At Jordan, Riverside (5-3, 2-1 PAC-6) will try to shrug off a 35-21 home loss to powerful Hillside and shouldn’t have much trouble as the Pirates visit injury-riddled Jordan (1-7, 0-2 PAC-6). A look at all of Friday's area high school football games.
