DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — Now in week three of the high school football season, the Extra Point’s Game of the Week features a rivalry matchup between the Enterprise Wildcats and the Dothan Wolves.
The last time these two squads squared off at Wildcat Stadium, Dothan was the away victor, beating their rival handedly 47-9.
This year’s matchup is going to not only look different but it will count differently. With Dothan’s move up to the 7A classification, this is now a regional game for the teams.
The Wolves are getting their first taste of action this Friday night after they have been sidelined for the past two weeks due to COVID-19 cases on the team. This provides some perspective for Smitty Grider’s team.
Considering that his team was just able to get back on the field in the past week, there will many questions how prepared they are for Friday night.
But, it helps to have Seniors Bauer Sharp and Jaylin White to lead the team. The talented offensive duo should be suited get back on the field.
The Wildcats are coming off a 35-19 victory over Carver Montgomery, and Rick Darlington’s team is tuned up for region play.
Last week’s game did start out sluggish between Enterprise and Carver, each team had five penalties in the first quarter of the game, but the Wildcats leaned on their rushing attack to pull away in the end.
Leading the way for Enterprise was Junior Quarterback, Quinten Hayes who piled up 136 yards on 15 carries in his first start under center for the Wildcats. As the season goes on, Enterprise will try and implement more of their offense for Hayes.
Friday’s kick off is set for 7 p.m. at Rip Hewes Stadium. Enterprise (1-0) @ Dothan (0-1).
