Thursday’s top matchups

Northview-Dothan at Robert E. Lee (7 p.m., Cramton Bowl)
Radio/TV: None
Last year: Northview 7, Lee 6
2009 Records: Northview 0-0; Lee 0-0
2008 Records: Northview 4-6, Lee 2-8
Key stat: Neither team has been in the playoffs in four years. Lee last went in 2005 while Northview hasn’t been since 2000.
Outlook: Larry Ware enters his second season at the helm of Lee while Wayne White begins his first season as head coach at Northview. Both schools are battling attrition that has plagued the programs in the last several years. Neither one is expected to be in the running for their respective region titles but a win in the opener would bolster the confidence that both dearly need.
Prediction: Lee 12, Northview 7

Trinity at St. James (7 p.m., Carlisle Field)
Radio: WLAX 100.9 FM
Last year: Trinity 7, St. James 2
2009 Records: Trinity 0-0; St. James 0-0
2008 Records: Trinity 8-3, St. James 1-9
Key stat: Trinity has won three straight in the series and eight of the last nine.
Outlook: St. James has moved away from the spread and is clearly a power-running football team. Trinity continues to thrive in the spread and has one of the better quarterbacks to run it in Jack Poundstone. The Trojans must avoid turnovers. Then again, so does Trinity.
Prediction: Trinity 20, St. James 9

Macon-East Montgomery at East Memorial (7 p.m., Stanley Jensen Stadium)
Radio: WIQR AM 1410
Last year: Macon-East 47, EMCA 2
2009 Records: Macon-East 0-0, EMCA 1-0
2008 Records: Macon-East 5-5, EMCA 3-8
Key stat: East Memorial opened with an impressive win over Jackson Academy. Macon-East also played but in a controlled scrimmage against Cornerstone Christian,
Outlook: What do we make of the Wildcats’ win last week? Putting five touchdowns on the board with 321 total yards of offense is impressive.  Holding JA to a total of 36 yards is equally impressive. But the opposition gets much tougher this week. Macon-East is still breaking in an “old” quarterback in Craig Granger. The final should be closer than last year but the outcome will be the same.
Prediction: Macon-East 20, EMCA 16

Marbury at Holtville – Bulldogs win either way but go with the ones in green. Holtville, 14-13

Crenshaw Christian at Edgewood Academy – Wildcats begin defense of their state title. Edgewood, 24-9
