Both teams come into the game with 5-1 records, however the Raiders enjoy a 4-1 conference record, compared to 3-1 for the Indians.
North Hills will have its hands full facing two of the best players in the WPIAL, Jordan Brown and Forrest Barnes.
Brown, Seneca Valley's senior quarterback, finished fourth in the WPIAL in passing yardage a season ago and never threw an interception. He takes the field Friday night with eleven touchdowns so far, and just one one interception.
North Hills fans likely remember Barnes, the senior running back, who had a 97-yard rushing touchdown against the Indians a season ago.
The Indians will look for big games out of Josh Hulbert, Jordan Blackmon, Tyler Reddick, and Brian Johnson.
Hulbert leads the team in rushing yardage and touchdowns. Blackmon and Reddick, when healthy, have also added to the North Hills ground game.
The Indians' will also need a solid performance from quarterback Brian Johnson if they are to win this game.
Kicker Wayne Carney has been outstanding on special teams, with 16 touchbacks, two away from setting the team record.
