Preview: Raegan at Davie

nTime: 7:30 p.m.
nRecords: Reagan 3-6, 1-2 CPC; Davie 6-3, 2-1 CPC
nSeries: Davie leads 2-0
nLast meeting: Davie edged Reagan 27-24 in 2010. In the inaugural meeting of the schools in 2009, the War Eagles prevailed 34-2.
nLast week: Reagan thumped R.J. Reynolds 27-10 for its first league win. Davie suffered a tough 32-28 loss to Mount Tabor.
nNext week: Reagan is at home against Mount Tabor. Davie is on the road at North Davidson.
nGame notes: Davie averages 29 points a game, while allowing 23 per game, and it should better both those averages tonight.
Davie couldnít have played a whole lot better than it did last week for coach Doug Illing, but it let Mount Tabor off the hook on a crucial fourth-and-35 late in the game.
Mount Tabor is going to win the CPC for the 15th time in 19 years, but Davie still has a chance to take its frustration out on its last two league opponents as it prepares for the playoffs.
Davie is running the ball tremendously. It had 325 rushing yards last week against one of the top 10 teams in 4A. Mick Spillman, Heath Nail, Cole Blankenship, Corey Gordy, Cameron Beck and Jonathan Wiseman led the blocking. QB Adam Smith had 191 of those rushing yards and has 1,864 yards of offense for the season.
Davie will still be missing big-play threat Denzel Redmon (fractured leg), but it got an all-world effort from defensive lineman Jamal Lackey last week.
Led by QB JaShaun Joyner, Reagan is no pushover and already has beaten R.J. Reynolds for the first CPC victory in school history. Still, Davie should dominate this one at home unless it gets caught looking ahead to rival North Davidson.
