Keys to victory

JEFFERSON

No turnovers. When the Dragons don't give away any gifts, they are difficult to beat. They can run (more than 2,000 rushing yards), pass (quarterback Matt Glavich has thrown for 2,121 yards and 23 touchdowns), and score (averaging more than 30 points a game). Jefferson is also tough defensively, so if they don't give the Braves a short field on turnovers, the Dragons will probably take the victory.

LAKE GIBSON

The Braves must rebound after losing top running back Rod McNeal, who broke his arm in last week's 38-31 victory against Lakewood. McNeal had 1,208 yards on 93 attempts. That means Braves quarterback Alex Dukes (119 completions for 1,902 yards and 70 carries for 489 yards) will have to step it up.
