FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

“Intense” is the word Northern High coach R.J. Wilson uses to describe the Knights’ football rivalry with crosstown rival Southern which will be renewed at 7 Friday night at Durham County Memorial Stadium. Southern alum and coach, Adrian Jones, says the Northern rivalry is more special to him than his players — “Hillside came in and took over the rivalry for the players,” Jones said. “But the game means a lot to me and I talk to my players about it a lot.” The rivalry has involved emotional investment with little return for the Knights of late. Northern has lost 10 straight in the series, winning its last game in 2002, according to Jones. ... Game-by-game breakdowns of all of Friday night's area football games.
