    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.

    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.
