August 22, 2010

Twiggs County and Greenbrier won their season openers as a few teams in the Peach State started their 2010 seasons.

Our Red Devils start play this Friday in Abbeville against a pack of Panthers that are sure to be snarling after a 35-21 loss to Class AAA power Chester. Reports indicate that Abbeville is a young team this year after losing much talent to graduation. Greenwood Index-Journal story

Reports indicate the Washington-Wilkes scrimmage in Elberton saw a number of offensive errors by both squads. The Tigers are expected to be more physical this year; they face a big test in Thomson this coming Friday.

More fireworks came at the end of the game with a TD and two-point conversion in overtime. McCormick edged Edisto 18-17. Index-Journal game story
