Solomon Leslie picks up yardage for Loganville during Friday night’s matchup with Parkview. The Red Devils hope to bounce back with a win on the road at Greenbrier this week.

Johnson-Gainesville (0-4 overall, 0-1 in 8-AAAAA) at Loganville (1-3 overall, 0-1 in 8-AAAAA)

Just when the Red Devils are desperately in need of a win, the perfect opponent arrives in town Friday night. 

The Knights have dropped seven straight to Loganville, and it hasn’t been close. Since the streak began in 1997, the Red Devils have outscored Johnson 247-39. 

The Knights are under new management this fall, but the results have been much the same. William Harrell, the third head coach in as many seasons, is still looking for his first victory. The Knights have lost all four games by an average of 42 points.

They won’t get any sympathy from the Red Devils, who have dropped three straight, including their Region 8-AAAAA opener to Greenbrier last Friday. They can’t afford any slip up if they hope to stay in the race for the region title.
