High School Football: Scouting tonight’s matchups

Greenwood (5-2) at Franklin (1-6)

Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

Radio: KORN Country 100.3

Recent history: The Woodmen have won the last two meetings, including a 36-22 triumph last season. Franklin was a 35-14 winner at Greenwood in 2014.

Sagarin ratings: Greenwood 70.04 (57th), Franklin 50.68 (135th)

Players to watch: Greenwood — QB Seth Gallman, RB Brandon Rosado, TE Conner Battinau, DE Jake Patton, LB Bryce Taylor; Franklin — QB Drew Byerly, RB Tyler Fromer, WR Riley McCann, LB Manny Cheam, S Clayton Coll

Keys to victory: At first glance, the Woodmen are a comfortable favorite, but they’d be wise not to overlook the rapidly improving Grizzly Cubs. Quarterbacks Gallman and Byerly are both developing into dual threats; whichever defense can do a better job of limiting that versatility should have the upper hand.

Lawrence North (2-5) at Center Grove (3-4)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Webcast: centergrove football.com

Recent history: The Trojans have won 11 straight meetings since the Wildcats’ last victory in 2005.

Center Grove was a 14-0 winner last season.

Sagarin ratings: Lawrence North 84.63 (19th), Center Grove 99.38 (third)

Players to watch: Lawrence North — QB Derrin McCulley, RB Tre Bonds, LB Maliq Carr, DB Harold Jones; Center Grove — QB Jackson Moore, RB Carson Steele, WR Jacob Keith, DL Austin Daming, CB Tyler Watson

Keys to victory: Both teams are in need of a pick-me-up, with the Trojans suffering back-to-back losses and the Wildcats falling on hard times after opening with two impressive wins. Center Grove will need to establish the run early in what promises to be a very physical clash.

Plainfield (4-3) at Whiteland (2-5)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Webcast: warrior beatsportsnetwork. weebly.com

Recent history: The Warriors have won six meetings in a row since the Quakers’ last triumph in 2010. Whiteland claimed a 31-14 road win last season.

Sagarin ratings: Plainfield 73.14 (47th), Whiteland 56.01 (115th)

Players to watch: Plainfield — QB Ben Slaton, RB Dawson Anderson, WR Cade Ritter, LB/TE Chase Spears, DB Herschel Blankenship; Whiteland — QB Iyan Pelfree, RB Ryan Hammond, RB Jake Perry, LB Austin Cook, DB Camron Ciampa

Keys to victory: Both teams have had a tendency to get into high-scoring games recently. Defensive stops figure to be at a premium, but Slaton has thrown eight interceptions this year. Can the Warriors force a couple of turnovers to swing the momentum their way?

Indian Creek (5-2) at Cloverdale (3-4)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Recent history: The Braves coasted to a 49-8 victory last season in the first meeting between the two teams.

Sagarin ratings: Indian Creek 48.74 (143rd), Cloverdale 18.79 (270th)

Players to watch: Indian Creek — QB Taylor Voris, RB Michael Perkins, WR/S Isaiah Lacey, WR/CB Brad Trietsch, LB Grant Goforth; Cloverdale — RB Tyce Jackson, RB/DB Nick Winders, RB/LB Jake Wilkes

Keys to victory: Winders and Wilkes star on both sides of the ball, pacing the Clovers in yardage and tackles. If the Braves can sustain long drives and wear them down, it should be able to pull away and clinch a second straight WIC East championship.

Edinburgh (0-7) at Wes-Del (2-5)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Recent history: The Lancers won last year’s meeting, 28-26, but lost 46-26 two years ago in their most recent trip to the Warriors’ home field.

Sagarin ratings: Edinburgh minus-11.66 (322nd), Wes-Del 18.51 (273rd)

Players to watch: Edinburgh — QB Tyson Sackman, RB/LB Zach Murphy, RB Austin Streeval, WR Hunter Dean, WR/DB Dillon Simpson; Wes-Del — QB/DB Camden Townsend, RB/LB Connor Townsend, LB Kyle Dosch, LB Mason Whitted

Keys to victory: The Warriors have totaled just eight points over their last three games. Can the Lancers, who have struggled to stop teams from scoring all season, keep them down? Containing Dosch (15 tackles for loss) will be a chore for Edinburgh’s offensive line.

Roncalli (7-0) at Decatur Central (6-1)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Webcast: rebelmedia network.com

Radio: CBS Sports-1430 AM

Recent history: The Rebels have won five of the last six, including a 43-25 victory last year. The Hawks’ lone win in that stretch came in 2014.

Sagarin ratings: Roncalli 97.04 (seventh), Decatur Central 82.13 (23rd)

Players to watch: Roncalli — QB Conner Gore, RB Patrick McManama, WR Michael Dill, DL John Harris, LB Luke Hanley; Decatur Central — QB Bryce Jefferson, RB Tyrone Tracy, LB/S Nick Pickett, DB Larry Tracy

Keys to victory: The Hawks feature one of the state’s most explosive one-two combos in Jefferson and Tyrone Tracy, but they were largely held in check by Greenwood last week. Will they be able to break free against a notoriously stingy Roncalli defense? This will be a statement game for two teams that could meet for a sectional title next month.
