The Dragons (4-3, 0-2) travel to Collinsville (5-2, 2-0) Friday for a 7:30 kickoff.

A 41-7 loss to Lindsay last week left the Dragons still winless in district play with three games left.

Turnovers plagued the Dragons again as they lost four fumbles. Lindsay put up 34 unanswered points in the second and third quarters to pull away.

Collinsville is coming off a 49-0 win over Trenton and defeated Blue Ridge 74-6 in their district opener.

Chico will have their hands full trying to slow down another potent rushing attack. The Pirates are averaging 265 yards per game on the ground, led by quarterback John Lewis with 824 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. He’s also passed for 146 yards.
