Football: SouthLake Christian at Hickory Grove
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. SouthLake Christian (5-1) at Hickory Grove (3-2). Last meeting: SouthLake won 43-39 last year. Players to watch: SouthLake – KR Kahlil Robinson, RB Robert Washington Jr., WR Robert Gallman; Hickory Grove – RB William Lloyd, RB Jacob O’Connor, LB Andrew Kakaley. THE SKINNY: SouthLake’s Washington had a huge game last week, with eight carries for 228 yards and four touchdowns, and a 41-yard scoring reception. The Eagles rolled up 49 points in the first half en route to 63. Hickory Grove has scored 40 or more points twice, so they’re no strangers to the end zone, either. SouthLake’s defense, led by Jack Fording, Grant Bushinski and Jalen Nash, will go against a run-heavy Hickory Grove attack that has four players with 200 or more rushing yards.
