HOWARD — For a battle that could decide the Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference championship, the recent history between the Highland Fighting Scots and the East Knox Bulldogs has been pretty one-sided.

Still, when the two teams meet Friday at 7 p.m. at Chet Looney Stadium, they will bring identical 7-1 records with them, and the winner will have a major say in who claims the league title.

Highland hasn’t lost since a 35-34 overtime defeat to Bloom-Carroll in Week 1. Since then, the Scots have averaged 37.2 points per game while allowing 12.7. The Scots are averaging 280 rushing yards per game, led by Brody Matthews, Jack Weaver and Josh Cantrell. Quarterback Reese Weissenfluh doesn’t have to throw often — he’s averaging about six attempts per game — but he can be effective, completing about half of his passes for 398 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
