Morgan hosting Hooper
The Morgan Academy Senators (3-3, 1-2 AISA Class 3A-Region 2) are hoping a return home will end a three-game losing streak, as they’ll host the Hooper Academy Colts (3-4, 1-2 AISA Class 3A-Region 2) on Friday at 7 p.m. in a region game.
The Senators are coming off a 38-28 road loss to region opponent Fort Dale, which marked three straight losses for Morgan, while Hooper is trying to recover from last week’s 41-6 loss against Monroe Academy.
The Senators defeated the Colts 26-12 in the teams’ meeting last season.
Trojans traveling to Cornerstone
The Meadowview Christian School Trojans (2-4, 1-3 AISA Class 1A-Region 2) will hit the road to Columbiana to face the Cornerstone Christian Chargers (4-3, 2-2 AISA Class 1A-Region 1) Friday at 7 p.m. in a non-region game.
Meadowview suffered its second straight loss last Friday in a 42-26 defeat at Marengo Academy, while Cornerstone is riding a three-game winning streak after winning 40-13 last week at Chambers Academy.

The game marks the third for the Hornets against a region opponent currently ranked in the Alabama Sports Writers Association top ten poll, as they’ve already suffered losses to third-ranked Central-Clay County and seventh-ranked Handley.

Friday’s game marks the first-ever meeting between the two opponents.
