We enter the third week of the season, where area teams have an excellent opportunity to continue their winning ways or turn around a rough start.

In this week's first of two games on WBCK, we will see the Lakeview Spartans for the first time this season as they host the Battle Creek Central Bearcats in a long-standing crosstown rivalry. If the first line doesn't give any indication of what is to come for the area squads, this game will definitely set the tone.

Two other city teams are in action tonight, while one will wait until Saturday before opening their home schedule. Here's a look at this week's preview.
