By LEE HILLER, Journal Sports

Thursday night games are not always the big games of the week for high school football, but this week is one of the exceptions with key District 1-5A and 1-4A matchups starting the week’s schedule tonight.

The big rivalry between Captain Shreve and Byrd is now more than just that, with both schools expected to compete for the District 1-5A title for the second consecutive year.
