Another great night of High School Football across NW Georgia this past Friday night and here are some of the highlights.
Calhoun vs. Therell Calhoun was impressive on all sides of the ball as they dominated Therell 52-6 in their home opener of the season. Most of the starters were pulled in the first half because of the lopsided score. Zack Fuller had 60 yards rushing and a touchdown in limited action. Calhoun opens region play at home against Sonoraville Friday night.
Gordon Central vs. Gilmer Gordon Central got a much needed win on the road Friday night as they defeated the Gilmer Bobcats 44-15. Nelson Gravitt was the MVP on Offense as he ran in for 3 Warrior touchdowns. The GC Defense was impressive as well creating four turnovers. This win will hopefully boost their confidence as they enjoy their off week and get ready for region play next week at home against Pepperell.
Darlington vs. Sonoraville The Phoenix could not get anything going on offense Friday night and they were shut out by the Tigers. The first half was a defensive stalemate as both teams were tied at 0 at halftime. The Tigers came alive in the 2nd half with runningback Kolin Rogers scoring all three touchdowns for Darlington in route to victory and a 3-0 record! It doesn't get any easier for the Phoenix as they open up region play with Calhoun Friday night.
Other Games and Notes of Interest LaFayette is 3-0 for the first time since 2009 after beating Gordon Lee 35-0 Friday night. They will play Heritage Friday night. Chattooga defeated Heirtage Friday night 34-7 with a big night from QB Clayton Johnson who threw for 3 touchdowns. Preston Poag was to much for Model to handle as the North Murray Mountainers beat Model 44-7. Armuchee was defeated by the big O-line of Haralson County and RB Treylon Shepperd 35-0. Dade County was defeated by Trion 21-0. This is the last week before region play begins next Friday! Some teams are off this week while others continue with non region competition. I went 15-3 in my Picks for last week as I improve to 31-11 on the season.
