      District games are scheduled Friday for both Como-Pickton and Cumby as teams enter the finals weeks of their schedule.

 at Como-Pickton
    The Eagles will be at home Friday for a district contest at Ron Heflin Field. Como-Pickton hosts Clarksville at 7:30 p.m.
    The Eagles are still winless for the year and have yet to score a point this year, being out-scored 431-0.
    Clarksville is 2-5 on the year, 1-2 in district. The Tigers have scored 171 points, allowing 255. They are coming off a 41-13 win over Paris Chisum.
    “Our practices have gone well,” said Conley Bland, Como-Pickton head football coach. “Clarksville is very talented. They run the spread on offense. Defensively, they use an odd man front and man coverage in the secondary.”
    Como-Pickton lost last week to Edgewood, 55-0.
Cumby at Maud
    The Cumby Trojans will be looking for a district victory when they trek to Maud for a 7:30  p.m. meet Friday with the Cardinals.
    The Trojans lost to Detroit last week, 25-13.
    “Maud runs a  3-4 defense and a spread offense, said Tom Dracos, Cumby head football coach. “Their running back is fast and explosive. The quarterback can run or throw well. Our kids know the only way to make the playoffs is by beating Maud. I think our kids will play their best game of the year Friday. I fully expect our team to rise to the challenge.”
    Maud is 5-2 for the season, 1-0 in district. They are coming off a 41-0 win over Gilmer Union Hill.
    Union Hill is scheduled to be the opponent at Cumby on Nov. 1. Reports say the game with the Union Hill is cancelled by a Union Hill forfeit.
    Cumby, 2-7, 1-2, closes out the season Nov. 8 with an open date.
