When: 7 p.m., Friday
Where: Crooked Oak High School
Records: Christian Heritage 5-3, 4-1 District 2A-2; Crooked Oak 5-3, 2-2
Last week: Christian Heritage 20, Oklahoma Christian 11; Crooked Oak 41, Dibble 28
Players to watch: Christian Heritage — Colton Lindsey, QB. He’s becoming an obvious choice, but he’s been crazy good since his return from a shoulder injury. His two touchdowns last week in an upset of defending champion OCS was the biggest performance yet.
Crooked Oak — Sanardo Ballard, WR. Ballard has eight touchdown receptions this season and is averaging almost 18 yards per reception. The Ruf-Nex run the ball a lot, but find Ballard at the right time.
Storylines: Christian Heritage — After a 53-0 loss to Millwood, CHA has won three straight to take over second in the district. A win guarantees at least second in the district and a home game to open the playoffs.
Crooked Oak — The Ruf-Nex are going to need a win and some help to make the playoffs after starting the season 4-1. Perhaps their best defense will be their offense keeping the ball and the clock moving.
The pick: Christian Heritage 35, Crooked Oak 27
