Below are several North Dakota high school football games in The Forum’s coverage area that are worth a look:
1. CLASS 2A – Enderlin-Maple Valley (2-0) at No. 3 Fargo Shanley (1-1), 6 p.m.
Shanley caps off its homecoming week with a Friday night matchup against Class 2A, East Region newcomers Enderlin-Maple Valley. … Enderlin-Maple Valley enters Sid Cichy Stadium with a 2-0 record after picking up wins against Northern Cass and Griggs-Barnes County. … Friday will be a big test for the Falcons, who play their first region contest of the year against the defending Class 2A state champions. … The Deacons are coming off a 49-22 win over Class 3A Fargo North.
2. CLASS 2A – Kindred (1-1) at Central Cass (1-1), 7 p.m.
Both Kindred and Central Cass are coming off tough road losses against Class 2A West Region opponents. … The Vikings fell 34-24 against No. 1-ranked Minot Ryan and the Squirrels lost a 30-14 contest against Beulah. This matchup will be of high importance to both teams, who will be looking to start the year off right in 2A, East Region play.
3. 9-MAN – No. 4 Napoleon-Gackle-Streeter (3-0) at LaMoure-Litchville-Marion (3-0), 7 p.m.
It’s battle of two undefeated teams. … LaMoure-Litchville-Marion received votes in the first two 9-man AP polls and if they somehow pull off a win they would likely break through into the top 5.
4. 9-MAN – Finley-Sharon-Hope-Page (3-0) at No. 1 Cavalier (1-0)
Finley-Sharon-Hope-Page hits the road and plays No. 1-ranked Cavalier. … F-S-H-P is on the heels of a 60-6 win over North Star and should provide a test to Cavalier.
