Week 6 is here and there's some big matchup on the schedule this week as we enter the second half of the season. Let's see what games are going down for the St. Peters schools. 

Fort Zumwalt South (3-2) at Fort Zumwalt East (4-1) at 7 p.m.

Fort Zumwalt South, riding a two-game losing streak, won't have to go far for its Week 6 road game. The Bulldogs just need to travel down Mexico Road to take on rival Zumwalt East.

After a big 3-0 start, the Bulldogs are 0-2 in GAC Central play. Last week, against Washington, the Bulldogs were throttled 67-21. Prior to the 67 points allowed, South had given up just 59 points all season.
