Providence Christian comes into the game with a two-game winning streak after falling in week one of the season to Alabama Christian.

Providence Christian defeated non-region opponent Samson in week two, and topped region foe Slocomb last Friday night.

Kickoff between Straughn and Providence Christian will be at 7 p.m., tonight in Dothan.
