Warren County, its sights set squarely on Lincolnton next week, blew away the Hurricanes 42-7 with their starters now playing in the second half. Down in Region 1-A, Clinch County fell behind 20-6 early to Seminole County, but rebounded in the second half to win 27-20.

Elsewhere in Region 7-A, Hancock Central reportedly opened their new field with a 28-0 whipping of GMC. The Bulldogs apparently preferred inaugurating their new gridiron against a winless opponent than against the two-time defending and undefeated state champs a week earlier. Twiggs County whitewashed Aquinas 34-0.
In Region 2-A, Hawkinsville upset Turner County 21-12, after Turner had upset Wilcox County a week earlier. Dooly County defeated Irwin County 22-14. The undefeated Bobcats now have to face Turner County and Wilcox County in the next two weeks.
ECI continued its unblemished roll with a 28-0 whipping of Bryan County in 3-A.
Pacelli is also undefeated after beating Taylor County 41-20 in Region 4-A.
Region 5-A is seeing some changes from recent years, as Fellowship Christian defeated Landmark Christian 24-17 and Whitefield Academy nipped Eagles Landing Christian 30-29. And in what looks like a basketball score, Our Lady of Mercy edged Mt. Pisgah 63-62. (Glad we weren't keeping those stats!)
Most of Region 6-A had the night off. Region 8-A saw Commerce outlast Prince Avenue Christian 36-33 and Athens Academy best Athens Christian 41-26. Jefferson defeated Social Circle 19-12.
In other area games of interest, Washington-Wilkes evened its season record at 4-4 with an 18-12 victory over Putnam County. W-W plays Greene County November 2 in a game that will probably determine who goes into the 8-AA playoff as the second seed from that region's Subregion A.
Thomson whipped Glenn Hills 35-0. In a big AAA shocker, Shaw beat LaGrange 25-16; before last night, LaGrange had given up only 7 points in 6 games.
