Davie-West Forsyth preview

nTime: 7:30 p.m.
nRecords: Davie 3-4, 0-1 CPC; West Forsyth 7-0, 1-0 CPC
nSeries: Titans lead 16-11
nLast meeting: The Titans rolled 37-20 in 2008
nStreaks: Despite last year’s setback against the Titans, Davie has won four of the last five and battered the Titans on its last two trips to Clemmons.
nLast week: Davie lost to R.J. Reynolds 33-23; West Forsyth had a tougher time than expected with North Davidson but edged the Black Knights 38-31 in OT
nNext week: A tough road continues for Davie at Mount Tabor; West Forsyth travels to play Reagan, the CPC’s only shaky team
nGame notes: West Forsyth was on the ropes last week against North Davidson and staring at its first defeat with a little over a minute left. But the Titans got a touchdown and a two-point conversion to force overtime, then outlasted the Black Knights.
Coach Adrian Snow’s Titans are ranked highly in every poll, including sixth in the official AP balloting.
QB Patrick Midkiff directed West’s win against the War Eagles last season and is still around. He had a huge game last week, going 14-of-25 passing for 265 yards. Midkiff hit Bobby Clark and Anthony Vergerano with key passes.
Davie will be challenged to stop Midkiff and the Titans. Lineman Chase Sampson had eight stops last week, but statistically Davie ranks last among the eight schools in the Post’s coverage area in scoring defense and rushing yards allowed. It’s seventh in total defense. Of course, a killer schedule contributes to those ugly numbers.
Davie QB Jacob Barber suffered a concussion last week on special teams. If he’s not available, Carson Herndon steps in. ó Mike London
