*Region 5A Matchup

Friday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m.

Summary: Center Point opens at home for the first time this season with Mortimer Jordan coming to town. The Eagles will look to bounce back from a 24-6 loss to Mountain Brook this past week. In that game, the Eagles held the Spartans to just 162 yards of total offense. Turnovers and an inability to cap off long drives spelled doom for Center Point.

Opponent: Mortimer Jordan fell to Pleasant Grove, 35-25, behind a final goal-line stand by the Blue Devils. Mortimer Jordan drove 51 yards on 15 plays, but was unable to capitalize. The Blue Devils’ defense held on four consecutive goal-line stands.

Previous Meeting: Center Point fell, 20-28, in 2018.
