Tonight's games

Crystal River (1-6, 1-1) at Citrus (3-4, 1-1)

When: Tonight, 7:30

Admission: $5

The scoop: Citrus' Antoin Scriven is still questionable, but after a week's worth of rest, don't be surprised if he's back in it for this one. With Nature Coast on top of the district, Citrus needs this win to get the second playoff spot. Under the tight reign of Anthony Paradiso, the Pirates are playing in a disciplined regime. Both teams like to pass more than run, close to a 60-40 ratio. Both have strong receivers, though Citrus likes to spread it among more players, and both have given up big plays this season that cost them games. (Crystal River's 14-10 loss to Nature Coast and Citrus' 29-28 loss to Nature Coast.)

 

Lecanto (0-7) at Hudson (1-7, 0-2 3A-8)

When: Tonight, 7:30

Admission: $5

The Scoop: It's to the point where teams just feel sorry to play Lecanto. The Panthers have been outscored an average of 40.2 points (opponents 309, Lecanto 27 this season.) Senior Jon Klabacka (102 carries, 375 yards) has scored all three of Lecanto's touchdowns this season. Hudson won the 3A-8 district title last year, but is regrouping under freshman quarterback Zack Wynn. Hudson's standout is senior running back Jake McFadden, who leads Pasco County with 1,151 yards on 181 carries and nine touchdowns.
