SALEM -- A year ago, Salem was the first of nine playoff opponents from 2012 that Franklin County's Eagles were scheduled to face.

Needless to say, the Eagles don't want a repeat of last year's performance.

Tonight, Salem, which competes in Group 4A, and FCHS, which compete in Group 6A, square off in the 2014 season opener for both clubs at Salem Stadium-Willis White Field. Kickoff is 7.
