Cape Henlopen @ Milford 7 p.m.
Since dropping two of their first three games this season, the Milford Buccaneers have won three straight heading into Friday night’s home contest against Cape Henlopen.

Sussex Central v. Polytech 7 p.m.
At the beginning of the season, few had this week’s matchup between Sussex Central and Polytech circled on their calendars. However, both teams enter the game at 5-1 overall, with Central holding a 2-1 mark against the conference, while Polytech is still undefeated at 2-0 against the Henlopen. The Golden Knights are coming off their first loss of the season, falling to Smyrna, 46-13, after winning their first five games. They’ll look to bounce against Polytech who have won five straight games after dropping their opener to A.I. duPont. The Panthers are coming off a 21-7 homecoming win over Laurel last week.
Sussex Tech v. Caesar Rodney 7 p.m.
After a slow start, dropping their first two games of the season, the Sussex Tech Ravens have won three of their last four games, including a 36-21 win over Dover last week. They’ll look to improve their conference record to 2-2 when they host Caesar Rodney for their homecoming game Friday night.
