Class A: Most Upsets

September 29, 2009

Clinch County shutout - by a region opponent - in Homerville! That should go down as the biggest upset of the week. (Miller County won 7-0 in this Region 1-A cross-subregion battle.)

But it wasn't. And it wasn't Darlington's 23-20 win over 6-A foe Bowdon.

The big upset was in Jeffersonville, when Twiggs County pounded Wilcox County 48-12 in a Region 2-A whipping. Wilcox was #2 in Class A earlier this month! The heads down that way must be spinning after that 36-point win, considering that Wilcox beat Twiggs by 29 last year, 63-34. Twiggs only 2009 loss was their opener, 16-6 to Wilkinson County.

In other games of interest, Aquinas whipped Glascock County 55-19, Washington-Wilkes beat Calhoun Falls 47-7, and North Paulding from AAAA edged Warren County 19-18.

This coming Friday will feature a showdown in Commerce with Athens Academy. This game decided the 8-A title for many years - until Wesleyan moved down from AA.
