Elgin Comets vs. Highland Fighting Scots

Where: Highland High School

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Records: Elgin 2-2 overall, 0-1 Mid Ohio Athletic Conference; Highland 1-3 overall, 1-0 MOAC

Last year: Highland won 48-18

Last week: Elgin lost to Fredericktown 56-3; Highland defeated East Knox 41-0

Keys for Highland

Stick to coaches’ game plan as how to defend Elgin’s single-wing attack.

Move the ball efficiently, as it did last week when Scots racked up 364 total yards.

Win here would keep Scots in the thick of the MOAC Blue Division race after a winless non-league campaign.

Keys for Elgin

Get the offense cranking again.

In regard to first key, offensive line has to establish itself in this game.

Be wary of the comings and goings of Highland RB Jared Limings, who is averaging 100 rushing yards per game.

Stat of the week

After scoring 92 points over the first two games, Elgin has tallied only three in its last two contests.
