Oak Hall (3-1) at St. Francis Catholic (2-2) – Lots of story lines in this small school rivalry showdown from the westside of Gainesville. It’s a North Florida Football Conference match-up; the visiting Eagles only won one game last year and one the previous year, but they’ve already won three in 2015; the Wolves have won two in a row since opening 0-2; It’s Homecoming; plus, St. Francis Catholic coach Scott McDaniel was the head coach at Oak Hall last year

Great battle at the QB position – Hoss Marino (St. Francis Catholic) vs. Matt Armstrong (Oak Hall). St. Francis Catholic has a slight edge up front (OL averages 265 pounds including 6’3, 350-pound sophomore Ike Walker at guard & DT);
One of the keys to victory according to McDaniel: “We have to stop the run.”
The Wolves will also have to take care of the ball. They rallied to defeat St. Johns Country Day (Orange Park) on the road, 21-17, despite four turnovers. Marino had 33 carries for 189 yards in that game and scored the game-winning TD with 1:24 to play.
