Battery Creek (2-8, 1-3 Region 6-AA) at Whale Branch (5-4, 4-0)
Last meeting: Battery Creek 22, Whale Branch 0 (2013)
The skinny: This one is for pride as the Warriors have already locked up the Region 6-AA title and Battery Creek appears to be playing its final game of the season. The rivals are playing for the first time as region opponents.
Player to watch: Whale Branch DL/OL Nyles Pinckney will be on the Dolphins' mind for his ability to force turnovers, live in the backfield and go sideline to sideline.
Never miss a local story.
Key to the game: Battery Creek will have to keep Whale Branch's impressive defensive ends from disrupting its run game. The Dolphins have been on the wrong end of some heartbreakers during region play and are trying to pull the upset, which will require a smart football game and probably some fortuitous bounces.
Colleton County (4-6, 0-3 Region 8-AAAA) at Bluffton (3-6, 0-3), 7:30 p.m.
Last meeting: Bluffton 40, Colleton County 36 (2013)
The skinny: With playoff hopes dashed, this is likely the last opportunity for both of these teams to claim a region win, with Summerville looming.
Player to watch: Alex Davis. The senior quarterback has had an up-and-down year for the Bobcats, but the struggling Cougars will provide ample opportunity to go out on a high note in his last home game.
Keys to the game: Focus on the positives. Bluffton has had a disappointing showing in 2014, but coach Ken Cribb said the focus now needs to be on enjoying the game and finding some way to improve heading into the offseason.
Stall (1-8, 0-4 Region 8-AAA) at Hilton Head Island (4-5, 0-4)
Last meeting: Hilton Head 35, Stall 14 (2013)
The skinny: Each team enters the season finale winless in region play. The Seahawks will miss the playoffs for the first time under coach B.J. Payne but are looking for a win on senior night.
Player to watch: Aaron Frazier. The senior WR has been a consistent weapon for two seasons, and will look to put together one final display of his talent on his home field.
Keys to the game: Opportunistic defense. The Warriors have scored just seven points in region play. If there were ever a game for Hilton Head to right the ship on defense, it's this one.
Edisto (0-9, 0-4 Region 5-AA) at Ridgeland-Hardeeville (6-3, 3-1) 7:30 p.m.
Last meeting: Edisto 45, R-H 12 (2012)
The skinny: In his first year as coach, Jahmaal Nelson sits one game away from clinching a share of the 5-AA region title. That would be a remarkable accomplishment for the Jaguars, who have retooled their offense to an option approach. Edisto is winless this season.
Player to watch: Jaguars LB Craven Howard secured player of the week honors after his interception return and rushing touchdown last week.
Keys to the game: R-H has the chance to secure a home playoff matchup, though nabbing the No. 1 seed is unlikely. This is no time to let up, so the Jaguars will have to apply relentless pressure and put Edisto away early, giving the Jaguars the chance to perhaps rest some key players.
Beaufort High (5-4, 2-2 Region 8-AAA) at Orangeburg-Wilkinson (7-2, 2-2)
Last meeting: N/A
The skinny: The winner earns the No. 3 seed from Region 8-AAA and the loser the No. 4 seed. Both teams will go on the road to open the Class 3-A playoffs. Orangeburg-Wilkinson defeated Hilton Head High 54-14 last week.
Player to watch: Tight end Omar Cummings has filled a position coach Mark Clifford knew would be tricky to start the season. Cummings made an impressive touchdown catch on a tipped pass last week and a big tackle on kick return.
Key to the game: The Eagles offensive line will look to get back on track after facing a physical Hanahan team that held Beaufort High to 70 yards rushing. Jeffrey Tookes and Wyatt Sherpensky continue to share the load.
Colleton Prep (5-4, 2-2 SCISAA Region 2-A) at Thomas Heyward Academy (2-7, 1-3)
Last meeting: THA 47, Colleton Prep 13 (2013)
The skinny: THA is looking to end their season on a positive note and end a seven-game losing streak.
Player to watch: A surprise to beign the season, Anthony Sanders has become a consistent contributor to the Rebels' ground attack.
Key to the game: THA hung in with both Hilton Head schools, but was unable to finish a few drives. If they can do so, they might grab a much-needed win on senior night.
Beaufort Academy (3-6, 3-4 SCISAA 8-man Reigon 2) at James Island Christian (1-8, 1-6)
Last meeting: Beaufort Academy 30, James Island 20 (2013)
The skinny: Beaufort Academy is trying to shake off an 84-41 loss at Andrew Jackson last week. James Island has dropped four straight, allowing at least 42 points per game in each.
Player to watch: James Island senior RB Jonathan Hickman has rushed for 799 yards and eight scores this season.
Key to the game: Beaufort Academy will have to slow James Island's ground attack, which is averaging 183 yards per game.
