While there were no major upsets this week in Class A, some area games did work to improve how our Devils might be perceived.
Commerce, which lost to our Devils 20-12 last week, beat Athens Academy 28-7 to stake a claim as the second best team in Region 8. Wesleyan trounced Social Circle 52-6, so they keep the top ranking in that region and the state. Hephzibah, whose only loss was to our Devils earlier this year, nipped previously unbeaten Lakeside 14-13.
Clinch County began subregion play and whipped Bacon County 33-6. Bowdon got back on the winning track with a 39-12 win over Mt. Zion of Carrollton. Hawkinsville surprised Irwin County 21-12.
In a battle of top 10 teams in Region 4-A, Greenville put a whipping on Chattahoochee County 33-13. Twiggs County continued to impress with a 48-7 win over Turner County in 2-A.
Savannah Christian shutout Claxton 27-0 and Savannah Country Day rolled over Portal 42-29 as the Savannah private schools continue to dominate Region 3-A.
In other 7-A action, Washington-Wilkes won their homecoming with a 28-6 win over winless Hancock Central. (W-W's next game is in 2 weeks when they host some Red Devils.) Wilkinson County beat Randolph-Clay 39-8. Warren County had the week off.
Thomson lost a 3-AAA game to Liberty County, 31-0, for the Bulldogs second shutout in 3 games. Things aren't looking good for Thomson, who now faces Washington County and Buford in the next 2 weeks. The Bulldogs didn't score a point against those two opponents last year.
