Make or break time for Clay County Jr. High teams

After taking off a week due to Hurricane Irma, Clay County junior high football teams finally got back on the field last week.
As Week 5 is here, teams face make or break games the following two weeks, which will decide the two divisions and the championship series.
Green Cove enters the week as the new No. 1 team after previous No. 1 teams Lake Asbury and Wilkinson both wentn down.

1. Green Cove Cougars (2-1)
Outlook: Since a Week 1 shocking loss to Wilkinson, the Cougars have won two in a row and host division rival Orange Park with a chance to move within a win of wrapping up the North Division title.
This week: Orange Park

2. Bradford County Tornadoes (2-1)
Outlook: Tornadoes were coming off a big win over Keystone 38-8 two weeks ago before Irma forced a rare week off. Last year the South Division title game down between Bradford and Lake Asbury, with Lake Asbury winning at home. This week the Tornadoes have a chance for revenge.
This week: Lake Asbury

3. Wilkinson Eagles (2-1)
Outlook: Two straight wins to open the season gave the Eagles plenty of momentum to start the season, however a stunning 21-20 lost to Oakleaf was surprising and may be the spark the Eagles need hosting divisional rival Keystone. A win sets up a potential winner take all game with Bradford.
This week: Keystone Heights

4. Lake Asbury Tigers (2-1)
Outlook: The Tigers shook of a a surprising loss to Wilkinson two weeks ago with a shut out win over arch-rival Orange Park and now travel to Bradford in a must win divisional game.
This week: at Bradford

5. Orange Park Wildcats (1-2)
Outlook: After a stunning win over Oakleaf, the Wildcats were brought down a bit with a shut out loss to Lake Asbury. Now they travel to Green Cove for a showdown between the two undefeated North teams, the winner taking control of the division.
This week: at Green Cove

6. Oakleaf Yellow Jackets (1-2)
Outlook: After back-to-back losses to start the season, the defending county and conference champions got back on track with a win over previously undefeated Wilkinson last week. After three consecutive road games, the Yellow Jackets host Lakeside in their home opener and a must win game to have any shot of repeating.
This week: Lakeside

7. Keystone Heights Indians (1-1)
Outlook: Its been three weeks since Keystone last took the field thanks to Irma and a bye week. Can the rusty Indians pull off the surprise again at Wilkinson.
This week: at Wilkinson

8. Lakeside Gators (0-3)
Outlook: If any team needs a win badly its Lakeside, as a loss here eliminates the Gators from winning the division.
This week: at Oakleaf
