Oct. 30 vs. North Side: In a schedule of so many big games, it’s hard to pick one that stands out from the rest. The Eagles vanquished one long-time hindrance when they won a district title last year, so the Indians could be the next big program they need to take down after being eliminated by them in the first round last year. Depending on how the season goes for either team, this could be a game for fourth place and essentially a playoff play-in game.
Most important stretch
Weeks 8-11: Chester County is one of three 2014 district champions in this region. The start the final four weeks of the season playing the other two – at Crockett County and at home against Hardin County. The end the season with a trip to Brownsville to play Haywood and all its athletes then come home to play North Side.
Sept. 25 at Lexington: This was the big-time foe Chester County finally vanquished last year. Both teams should be in the mix among some good teams for the playoffs and the district title. If the Eagles are to make a push in that direction, getting a win here in the biggest region game of the first half will be essential to those efforts.
Predicted regular season record:
5-5. The Eagles will find themselves on the outside looking in come playoff time.
