It is the point of the season where every team has played at least two games in the league.
Tonight will certainly be the biggest game for the Wellston Golden Rockets, who have been on a roll the past couple of weeks, as they travel to Buchtel to take on the unbeaten Nelsonville-York Buckeyes in a 7:30 p.m. contest.
The Rockets (4-2, 2-0 TVC-OHIO) enter tonight's game on a two-game win streak after a 28-7 win at home against River Valley last week.
Senior tailback Travis Jayjohn rushed for 222 yards on 26 carries and two touchdowns against the Raiders. In addition, senior quarterback Michael Graham threw for 83 yards and a touchdown in the win.
Defensively, the Rockets' Nick Davis forced a fumble to set up their first touchdown of the game in the first quarter. Then they held River Valley on downs on their first two possessions of the second half, which set up touchdown drives by Wellston.
"River Valley was dangerous," said Wellston head coach Jason Lucas. "They have a good quarterback with a lot of speed on the edge and their offensive line is good. But our guys just seemed like they were starting to come together.
"When we needed a play, we made one. We have a young team with a lot of first year players. Our losses came against Jackson, which is 5-1 and Portsmouth West, who is 6-0. I feel like our guys are just now starting to gel. We are not where we want to be yet but I can see strides of us getting there."
In their previous game, the Rockets knocked off Alexander 50-6 to begin TVC Ohio Division play two weeks ago.
This week's game against Nelsonville-York features a challenge against a team ranked fourth in the Ohio AP High School Football Poll in Division VI.
The Buckeyes are also No. 1 in the OHSAA Division VI, Region 23 computer rankings.
"They Nelsonville-York have a good football team. Coach (Rusty) Richards does a good job," Lucas said. "They have speed and they use it to their advantage on offense. They have a very good running back, who can breakaway for a big play at any time. Then they have receivers, who have a knack for making plays and their quarterback throws the ball well.
"They will use the run and pass to keep you off balance and that makes them dangerous being able to do both. Defensively, they have a lot of speed and they run to the football."
Nelsonville-York (6-0, 2-0 TVC-OHIO) is coming off a 49-14 win at Meigs last week.
Keegan Wilburn led the Buckeyes with 244 yards rushing on 15 carries and three touchdowns against the Marauders, while Colt Yinger added 136 yards on eight carries.
The Buckeyes defense has held teams to under 10-points twice this season with one shutout and they have allowed 81 points (13.5 points per game), while scoring 228 points (38 points per game) in their six games.
"We have to make little to no mistakes on both sides of the ball and we can't miss tackles on defense," said Lucas. "We have to challenge every pass, especially the deep ball.
"Offensively, we can't have missed blocking assignments and more importantly, we have to hang on to the football. In these types of games, if you make a mistake, it is hard to recover. So we have to limit mistakes and play really good fundamental football."
Tonight's game will mark the 45th meeting all-time between the Rockets and the Buckeyes, with Nelsonville-York holding the advantage in the series 33-11. However, the Rockets have won two of the last four games against the Buckeyes, including a 46-20 win in 2015 at Nelsonville.
Wellston is 5-15 all-time in games played at Nelsonville-York.
