No. 5 Lakeland (8-1) at No. 4 Sparta (7-2)

North 1, Group 3 first round

Storyline: If Lakeland wishes to reach a second-straight sectional final, it will have to run through a tougher gauntlet than last year's Group 2 bracket. The Lancers have a multi-pronged attack with QB Michael McKay (9 TD) and RB Anthony Tanner (14 TD), who have combined for more than 2,000 yards rushing. Sparta's only losses are to Ramapo – the top seed in the section – and Randolph, which fell to Ramapo last weekend. The Spartans field a 1,000-yard rusher in Austin Castorina (19 TD).
