Wilkinson County scored 30 on Warren County in the first half and then cruised to a 36-6 win in a Region 7-A battle last night in Warrenton.
The 7-A focus will shift to Washington next Friday night when the Tigers will host our Red Devils in the 2009 battle of The 378 War. LC and W-W were both idle last night.
Aquinas held on late to edge Class AAAA North Paulding 21-20 and even the Irish record at 3-3. Hancock Central broke a long losing streak with a 50-12 win over Glascock County.
Wesleyan continued its onslaught, jumping to a 49-0 lead at the break enroute to a 56-7 win over Prince Avenue Christian. The Wolves host Commerce next Friday in a game that could decide the top 2 spots in 8-A. Commerce beat Athens Christian 35-17 last night.
Savannah Christian kept pace with Wesleyan with a 40-7 win over Bryan County. Johnson County had more trouble than expected with Jenkins County, but won 35-27. ECI upset previously-unbeated Treutlen 35-28 to make the Region 3 subregion B race more interesting.
The same happened in Region 2 when Hawkinsville upset Dooly County 31-24 in overtime. Twiggs County defeated Irwin County 14-7. And over in 6-A, Darlington surprised Bremen 35-28. Bowdon had no problems with Gordon Lee, 33-0.
And in a huge game down in Valdosta, it looks like history was made, and not the kind that the Valdosta Wildcats were looking for. Lowndes, coming off a tight loss to Northside Warner Robins, took out their frustrations on their archrival Wildcats. In a nationally broadcast game, Lowndes pounded Valdosta 57-15, with the mercy rule in place for the final quarter. It appears those 57 points are the most ever scored against the school with the most high school football wins in the country. The 42-point losing margin may be the largest in Wildcat history, which dates back to 1913.
