This past Friday night was the fourth week of High School Football action across the area and some exceptional football was played! Cross town rivals Calhoun and Sonoraville played each other Friday night at the Reeve with a delayed start because of unexpected thunderstorm right before kickoff. The delay did not stop the explosive Calhoun Yellow Jacket offense from jumping out of the gate and scoring 31 points by halftime. Zack Fuller rushed for 100yards and scored 3 touchdowns in the Yellow Jackets 38-0 win over the Phoenix. Calhoun is 11-0 all time over Sonoraville in the series. The yellow Jackets travel to Chatsworth Friday night to play North Murray in a Region6AAA matchup. The Phoenix will be off this week. The Rome Wolves extended their win streak to 30 games by defeating Kell, 35-6. Pepperell got their first win of the season beating Heritage 31-17. Adairsville soundly defeated Coahulla Creek 41-10. Preston Poag and North Murray upset Ringgold 14-7 Friday night. Rockmart goes to 3-0 on the season by defeating Heard County 33-0. Christian Heritage came back from 26 points in the 2nd half to beat LaFayette 35-26 to go 3-0 for the first time in school History! LaFayette was looking to go 4-0 for the first time since 1991. They drop to 3-1 and will be off this week.
Region7AA Play Begins And Key Games
Region play begins Friday and the next seven games become very important for everybody in the region! Gordon Central opens up Friday night at home against Pepperell. Both teams come in at 1-2 and want to start region play with a win! Pepperell was #2 in the region last year and is looking to improve. GC is coming trying to improve from 2 region wins from last year and be in the discussion for a playoff spot come first week in November. The other games in our region will be Armuchee visiting Rockmart and Dade County traveling to play Model. The game of the night should be Chattooga @Coosa. Chattooga comes in at 2-1 with a high powered offense including runningback EJ Lackey. Coosa is 0-3 with a brutal non region schedule and their looking to make a statement game as they are favored to make a run in the region.
There are key games in Region 6AAA to watch Friday night. Ringgold hosts LFO in a game that could determine playoff spots later in the season. LFO was 5-5 last year and looks to improve that record this season. Ringgold has a had a few off years and looks to rebound after a tough loss from North Murray last week. Haralson County hosts Adairsville Friday night in an intersting matchup. Haraslon County is 2-0 and if they defeat Adairsville in region play, are they a legit playoff team? Murray County hosts Coahulla Creek Friday night as both teams are 0-3 on the seson. Coahulla Creek could stop the state of Georgia's longest losing streak with a win Friday night. They lost a hertbreaker two weeks ago to SE Whitfield 9-6. Should be another great week of High School Football in our region!!
