With only two days between their last games, No. 50 Armwood will square-off No. 74 Plant Monday night. This game was originally scheduled for September 8, but was postponed because of Hurricane Irma.
Both teams bring undefeated records into this rivalry game. Armwood is 6-0 after defeating King 56-0 Friday night. Plant brings a 6-0 record into the game after beating Leto 50-6 two days ago.
The Hawks and Panthers are led by great defenses. Plant has only allowed 29 points with three shutouts this season, while Armwood has only given-up 35 points. Friday’s shutout was the first of the season for the Hawks.
Plant brings a 20-game regular season win streak into the game, which will give Armwood a change to get a little revenge. Last year’s 29-27 Plant victory snapped Armwood’s 34-game regular season win streak. Armwood has only lost two regular season games, and both of those losses have come at the hands of the Panthers.
Both teams have plenty of top recruits with Armwood being led by 4-star running back Brian Snead, who’s given his verbal to Ohio State. Hawk receiver Warren Thompson and defensive end Malcolm Lamar have given their verbals to Oregon, while linebacker Caleb Sutherland says Toledo is his choice. Plant defensive lineman Judge Culpepper has chosen Penn State and lineback Micah McFadden gave his verbal to Indiana.
