Auburn (1-1) vs. Enterprise (1-1)

Following a narrow loss to Opelika, Auburn is looking to rebound and improve against an upstart Enterprise team. The Tigers open region play looking for their third-straight win against Enterprise. Enterprise is hot off a 50-22 win against Charles Henderson, and in their season opener, the Wildcats gave North Miami Beach High School from Florida all they could handle in 34-31 loss.

This is a different Enterprise team from the one that went 2-8 a year ago. The offense has been explosive, scoring 40.5 points per game. They will clash with an Auburn defense that is only allowing 10.5 points per game. For the previous two seasons, Auburn hasn’t allowed more than 11 points per game, so this game is an opportunity for the Auburn defense to be tested.

Winegarden spoke with RadioAlabama Sports to preview the Tigers’ game against Enterprise.

Opelika (2-0) at Selma (1-0)

It is the same opponents as last year, but this season, Opelika has started fast. The Bulldogs are 2-0 after statement victories against Callaway and Auburn, while last season Opelika started the year 0-2 and 2-4 in their first six games. Proof that Opelika has improved, the Bulldogs have closed out tight games on the defensive side of the ball, allowing 10 points per game. For the region opener, Opelika will be looking to improve its offensive production from 15.5 points per game against Selma.

Beauregard (0-2) vs. Valley (0-2)

Outscored 94-19 in its first two games, Beauregard starts the region schedule against Valley, with both teams looking to reset from winless starts. Valley challenged themselves in the first two weeks with games against Lanett and Smiths Station, losing by a combined 14 points. Beauregard opened up with two 6A opponents, Benjamin Russell and Eufala. Neither team looks like they should be 0-2 after very difficult starts, but someone will be 0-3 after tonight’s game.
