Greenville High School will look to secure a winning record in Class 5A, Region 3 play Friday night when it hosts Sumter Central High School.

The Tigers currently own a 3-3 mark in region play after dropping a 17-13 decision to Saraland High School last week at Tiger Stadium. Friday’s showdown with the Jaguars is the final region contest of the season for the Tigers (3-5).

The Jaguars enter Friday’s game looking to snap a three-game losing streak. Sumter Central started the season 0-4 before scoring a 50-0 win over Class 3A Greene County on Sept. 28. Since then, the Jaguars (1-7) are winless.
