Harrisburg Eagles (2-4) at Creswell Bulldogs (3-3)

Game facts: 7 p.m. at CHS 

What2Know: The Bulldogs suffered a tough loss at Sisters last week despite solid efforts from Connor
and Jack Nguyen. Creswell is on a two-game skid, and should win this game.

Quotable: “We’re excited about homecoming/senior night this week, the last time our seniors play at home where it all began four years ago for most of them.  Although Harrisburg is only 2-4 we will need to have our ‘A’ game … They have a QB that can sling it and really try to spread your defense out.”
– Creswell head coach Scott Worsham
