Two epic football showdown are taking place locally Friday night.
In the Muskingum Valley League, Philo (8-1) plays host to five-time defending champion Tri-Valley (8-1) at Sam Hatfield Stadium. The Electrics already earned a share of the league title after blowing out Morgan last week, and are one win away from clinching their first outright league championship since 1988. The Scotties are on the outside looking in at the Region 7 playoff picture, but would clinch a share of the league crown by beating Philo.
Listen to the game live on Z92 starting at 7 p.m., and watching delayed broadcast Saturday morning at 10:30 on WHIZ.
In the Licking County League, two state-ranked teams are going toe-to-toe as #10 Heath (9-0) welcomes #1 Johnstown-Monroe (9-0) to Swank Field for the Cardinal Division championship. Both teams have already clinched playoff spots in Division 4, Region 15.
Watch highlights from both games on the week 10 edition of “Fink’s Friday Night Blitz,” hosted by Pat Chiesa and Matt Ryan.
