LAST MEETING: The two teams met just last season in Waxhaw, with the Bulldogs winning, 27-19.


PLAYERS TO WATCH: Cuthbertson: junior quarterback Evan Bernard, senior running back Jack Rhinehart, senior corner Robbie Crump, senior corner Jackson Cheek, sophomore receiver AJ Colombo, junior receiver Seth Eighmy senior defensive lineman Ricky Weekes, junior defensive lineman Gavin Thomas; Jay M. Robinson: junior running back Josh Grant Jr., senior wide receiver Sean Hughes Jr., senior running back Andre Hamilton, junior linebacker Memphis Jones, senior linebacker Andre Hamilton, senior linebacker Josiah Jackson

MATCHUP: Cuthbertson will lean on its size and depth up front tonight, something it’s been relying on all year with a young roster. That will put strength against strength tonight, as the Bulldogs use their stable of running backs to gain yardage. Jay M. Robinson isn’t going to change its mentality, using a multitude of runners to fuel its offensive attack.
