MINERAL, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- The lone high school football game in the Central Virginia on Friday night takes place in 'The Jungle' with Louisa County hosting a familiar Salem team.

"It's a big opportunity," senior quarterback Landon Wilson said, "Coach [Will] Patrick says you don't get another chance at redemption a lot in life and going down to their stadium and taking a big loss, I'm hoping to get a huge win here at Louisa."

Friday night's matchup will be a rematch of last year's Region 4D Semifinals, when the Lions were throttled 55-7 down in Salem. Those three numbers have stuck in the mind of Louisa players all year, especially a senior class still looking to win the program's first region semifinal game since 2017.

"55-7, that's all I can think of, they gave us a lick," senior defensive lineman Qwenton Spellman said, "55-7 that's been my motivation all year, it's been the team's motivation. Our key word this year is finish because we didn't finish last season off good, you want to finish this season great."

Louisa County expects another large crowd on Friday night in 'The Jungle', their first time hosting a region semifinal since 2019. The Lions will take a moment of silence pregame in memory of the victims of the tragic shooting at the University of Virginia where Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D'Sean Perry were killed and two more were injured. Louisa players will also wear helmet decals in honor of UVA.

On Friday Louisa will look to avenge their 55-7 loss, but also the 2017 State Championship game loss to the Spartans.

"We haven't hosted a big playoff game here in a few years, especially losing to them last year and losing to them in the state championship," Wilson said, "It would mean a lot for us to come out here and get a big win against them, like it's a really good team."
