Homewood Hosts Ben Russell in Blitz Game Of The Week

Posted: Updated:

Homewood and Benjamin Russell took care of business last week.

Both teams wrapped up Region titles, but there's still plenty on the line in the 3340 Blitz Game of the Week.

"There aren't many teams better than they are," Benjamin Russell coach Danny Horn said. "This will get us a prepared of what we can expect when we do get in the playoffs."

The Wildcats can also wrap up an unbeaten regular season against the Patriots. Ben Russell hasn't done that since 1988.

Homewood responded to a season opening loss to Vestavia Hills by reeling off eight straight wins to capture Class 5A Region 4.

Blitz Gameday will be live from Homewood's Waldrop Stadium Friday night at 6:15. Ben Russell and Homewood kickoff at 7.

The Patriots Senior Night festivities begin at 6:30 p.m.
