THE SKINNY: These rivals play for the “Shield of Victory” every year and despite the records, it should be an intense game. Hopewell has lost five straight. North Mecklenburg has battled injuries and inconsistency. Both teams could use a few lucky breaks, and both would love nothing better for their troubles to end against the team they want to beat most.
