    LEOPOLD—Two undefeated teams will battle for control of the PLAC football race when Perry Central hosts West Washington Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    Each is 6-0 overall and this is West Washington’s final conference game, so a win would definitely give the Senators the title.
    The Commodores have conference games remaining with Springs Valley and Mitchell after this week, but a win Friday would mean they would need to win only one of those games to get at least a share of the conference title.

    “Sam Rogers, our replacement goalie, did a great job in goal - he had 20 saves.
