Opponent: Hickory

Time/Place: 7:30 p.m./Hickory High School, 1996 Hawk Blvd., Chesapeake

Outlook: The Warriors suffered their first Southeastern district defeat last week, a 35-7 beating at the hands of Western Branch. Whether they can bounce back tonight will show whether they’ll cotninue to be a force to be reckoned with.

Pick: Nansemond River 24, Hickory 21


Opponent: Deep Creek

Time/Place: 7:30 p.m./Lake-land High School

Outlook: Deep Creek is still ticked at Suffolk for the beating Nansemond River bestowed upon them three weeks ago, but the Cavaliers still remember that the Hornets ended their playoff hopes last season.

Pick: Lakeland 28, Deep Creek 16



Opponent: Atlantic Shores

Time/Place: 7:30 p.m./Nansemond-Suffolk Academy

Outlook: The Saints are riding three consecutive shutouts into tonight’s contest, but Atlantic Shores is 8-0, the state’s top-ranked Division II team. Nansemond-Suffolk can’t let this one slip away like they did against St. Anne’s in their only defeat on Oct. 4.

Pick: Atlantic Shores 21, Nansemond-Suffolk Academy 17
