Tucker High may be in the proverbial driver's seat when it comes to a top seed in the playoffs, but Friday night's matchup between Marist High and Mays High will likely determine who gets spot No. 2 for Region 6-AAAA.
The War Eagles (7-1 overall, 7-1 Region) - winners of six straight - are riding a hot streak following a tough loss in week two of the season.
Marist's potent offense has been putting on a show this year, averaging 34.0 points per game. They must face a tough Raiders (6-2, 6-2) team that allows just a staggering 7.9 points.
Mays suffered its second loss in three weeks in their last outing against St. Pius High. The Raiders had won five straight to start the season but have struggled to generate much offense.
Mays is averaging just 7.9 points per game, which may prove to be too great of a problem against a War Eagles defensive unit that permits 13.5 points in each contest.
Marist has won the previous two matchups between the two, including a 30-6 triumph last season.
Kick-off is set for 8 p.m.
