This will be the third meeting between these two powers in the past 15 months with the most recent meeting occuring back in late October in a game North Gwinnett won by five.
If the Bulldogs (12-1 overall, 7-1 region) want to have a similar outcome this time around, they must find a way to stop a Walton offense that generates over 31 points per game.
The Raiders (12-1, 5-0) are also riding high after escaping with a one-point victory last week over an excellent M.L. King squad. Walton got past Harrison to start the playoffs.
North Gwinnett is also coming off a very close second-round showdown as they narrowly escaped Newnan in a high scoring affair. The Bulldogs trounced Brookwood in round one.
This season, North Gwinnett is averaging nearly 30 points per game and allowing just under 12.
The Bulldogs have defeated the Raiders in the previous two meetings with Walton taking the contest back in 2004.
