Trinity Christian (Jax) at Oakleaf (Oakleaf 48, Trinity 40))
Unbeaten Trinity Christian (6-0) with a 31-30 win over Columbia on Sat., Sept. 29 has jumped from a 3A champion in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 to Class 5A region finalist last year. Trinity got a big win over 7A-power Columbia (5-1) on Saturday in a lightning-delayed move while Oakleaf stayed on the field in district 3-7A win over Fleming Island. Nobody has been able to figure the double whammy offensive attack of the Knights with Simmons’ arm and King’s legs. Trinity has as many great athletes as Oakleaf plus a history of big games. This is a big game though inconsequential to playoffs for either team beyond momentum and playoff points as Oakleaf looks to cruise to the district title under first-year coach Frank Garis.

(KHHS 27, Crescent City 20)
Keystone Heights was tied 7-7with Hawthorne in week six game and will continue on Oct. 29.
Crescent City coach Clarence Williams is NFL pedigree and likes to run the ball. Keystone Heights likes to run the ball with Nick Channell’s 631 yards in four games. Could be a very fast game if both stay on the ground and keep the clock going.
