Next week's top high school football games

Ardrey Kell (2-2, 1-0 Southwestern 4A) at No. 9 Independence (5-0, 1-0)
Knights’ two losses are by eight combined points, and Ardrey Kell could provide a real test to the Patriots, who are the only conference unbeaten.
West Mecklenburg (3-2, 1-0 MEGA 7) at No. 3 Charlotte Catholic (5-0, 1-0)
Rare chance for the Hawks to play in one of the games of the week in town. West Meck has won three straight. A big key in that streak is a defense that is giving up just 10 points per game.
North Mecklenburg (1-4, 0-1 I-Meck 4A) at West Charlotte (2-3, 1-0)
Lions snapped two-game losing streak with Friday’s 16-7 win at Hopewell and play only their second home game of the year against a traditional rival.
Hopewell (1-3, 0-1 I-Meck 4A) at Hough (2-3, 1-0)
Hough got its first ever conference win Friday, beating Vance 21-7. Now the Huskies will try for their third win in four weeks against a Huntersville-area rival. Get there early for this one.
No. 8 Burns (4-1, 0-0 South Mountain 2A/3A) at No. 12 Freedom (5-0, 1-0)
Both teams like to pass and both are serious league title contenders along with Chase (5-0, 1-0) and East Rutherford (4-1, 1-0).
Central Cabarrus (2-2, 0-1 South Piedmont 3A) at A.L. Brown (4-1, 1-0)
North Carolina recruit Damien Washington missed Brown’s 48-0 win over J.M. Robinson with a knee injury. Junior Kalif Phillips ran 13 times for 181 yards and four touchdowns in his place.
No. 5 South Point (5-0, 1-0 Big South 3A) at Hunter Huss (5-0, 1-0)
Is Huss for real? The Huskies won three games last season. We find out Friday, when Huss faces a team averaging more than 50 points comes in.
