Berry Academy (2-3, 1-3 SoMeck 7 4A) at South Mecklenburg (2-3, 1-3), 7 p.m. – Berry Academy tries to rebound from a lopsided loss last week at Ardrey Kell, but they face a Sabre team with a tough defense. That defense stifled A.L. Brown’s explosive offense in the Sabres’ 17-14 upset victory last week.

Butler (4-1, 4-1 Southwestern 4A) at Garinger (0-5, 0-5), 7 p.m. – The Bulldogs are coming off an impressive rout of Hickory Ridge and can clinch a playoff berth with a victory here.

Community School of Davidson (4-1, 3-1 Southern Piedmont 1A) at Mountain Island Charter (1-4, 1-2), 6:30 p.m. – The visiting Spartans will take a big step toward a playoff berth with a victory here. Raptor QB Dylan Bisson has completed 71 percent of his passes for 14 touchdowns this season.

Hickory Ridge (3-2, 3-2 Southwestern 4A) at East Mecklenburg (1-4, 1-4), 7 p.m. – QB Alex Bentley and the strong Hickory Ridge offense must forget last week’s blowout loss to Butler and keep aim at a playoff berth. East Mecklenburg’s offense has been erratic but has put together a couple strong performances this season.

Lake Norman (3-2, 3-2 I-Meck 4A) at Hopewell (1-4, 1-4), 7 p.m. – Fun fact: Lake Norman has thrown 12 passes this season and run the ball 136 times. If the ground game gets going with RB Caleb Douthit, Hopewell’s offense might not get on the field much.

Mallard Creek (3-2, 3-2 I-Meck 4A) at Hough (5-0, 5-0), 7 p.m. – Have the Mavericks returned to power? We get an answer in this game, as the visitors put their three-game winning streak up against the Huskies. Hough RB Elijah McWilliams is approaching 100 rushing yards per game.

Myers Park (5-0, 5-0 Southwestern 4A) at Porter Ridge (4-1, 4-1), 7 p.m. – To beat the explosive Mustangs, led by QB Lucas Lenhoff, you must keep their offense off the field. Porter Ridge has a strong ground game, featuring RB Stephan Zayachkowsky, that can eat up yardage and time.

North Mecklenburg (1-3, 1-3 I-Meck 4A) at Vance (5-0, 5-0), 7 p.m. – The Cougars are big favorites here and will be hoping to stay unbeaten and remain healthy, in advance of next week’s showdown with Hough.

Olympic (5-0, 5-0 SoMeck 7 4A) at Providence (5-0, 4-0), 7 p.m. – Olympic QB Sean Bowles is a powerful runner, but he threw for two touchdowns last week. Providence counters with QB Holland Stallings, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for another last week. It’s the highlight game of the Easter weekend in the Charlotte region.

Rocky River (1-4, 1-4 Southwestern 4A) at Independence (2-3, 2-3), 7 p.m. – Rocky River has suffered a couple of close losses. Its defense must stop Patriot QB Arnold Taylor, who can run or throw successfully.

West Charlotte (1-4, 1-4 I-Meck 4A) at Mooresville (0-4, 0-4), 7 p.m. – The Patriots hope to get their second victory under coach Sam Greiner, facing a young Mooresville team that is averaging only 10 points per game.

West Mecklenburg (0-5, 0-5 SoMeck 7 4A) at Harding (0-5, 0-4), 7 p.m. – Someone escapes the cellar in this game. West Mecklenburg QB Zaire Kenney is averaging about 150 passing yards per game.

OUTSIDE MECKLENBURG

A.L. Brown (4-1, 4-0 South Piedmont 3A) at Jay M. Robinson (4-0, 3-0), 7 p.m. – The Wonders were stunned in a nonconference loss to South Mecklenburg last week, but they must regroup in a hurry. The host Bulldogs have outscored their last three opponents 119-20. A.L. Brown RB Jamison Flowe has eight rushing touchdowns this season.

Monroe (4-1, 4-1 Southern Carolina 3A) at Weddington (3-0, 3-0), 7:30 p.m. – This is a challenging spot for Weddington, which was idle last week. The Warriors are playing the first of three games in a nine-day stretch. Monroe has an explosive attack, led by sophomore QB Khamoni Robinson. Weddington has outscored opponents 106-12 this season.
