3. Southern’s three point margin of victory last week was it’s narrowest since claiming a 16-13 win over Waterford on October 16, 2009. SHS had lost their last three games that were decided by three-or-less points.

4. The last Washington County team to claim victory at Roger Lee Adams Memorial Football Field was the 2011 Waterford Wildcats. Along with Frontier, both Waterford and Belpre will visit Racine this fall.

5. Last year’s 6-4 Frontier record was the first winning mark for the Cougars since 2009. The 2004 season was Frontier’s last playoff appearance and it’s third straight.
