6:00 p.m.: Welcome back for one more week of regular-season football. With the majority of the area's teams already assured of postseason berths, much of tonight's action centers around final positioning in the rankings. Millbrook, for one, likely needs to beat Sherando to make the Group AA, Division 3 playoff field, and a victory tonight against Warren County would erase any lingering uncertainty for Skyline. Same goes for Handley, which hosts James Wood in a Saturday matchup at 1 p.m.

Here's a look at tonight's games:

• R-MA at Bishop Walsh (Md.), 3 p.m.

• Warren County at Skyline, 7 p.m.

• Millbrook at Sherando, 7 p.m.

• Wilson Memorial at Stonewall Jackson, 7 p.m.

• William Monroe at Clarke County, 7:30 p.m.

• Central at Strasburg, 7:30 p.m.
