Surprise Teams Expected to Win Again in Class A Week 4

September 07, 2004

If Landmark Christian thought it was tough against Social Circle in their upset loss last week, just wait until the War Eagles visit the rebuilt Bowdon stadium this Friday. Bowdon is back and they remember the last two seasons and its 41-0 and 27-14 losses to Landmark. Simply put, it won't be at all pretty this week, and GAVSV's Wataboy will be smiling when it's all over. GO RED DEVILS!!

Aquinas Irish undefeated after 3 games. Yep, that's what we think they will be saying after this Friday when new school North Oconee (Class AA) visits Augusta.

Randolph-Clay should remain as the "other" undefeated Red Devil team in Class A when the new arrivals in Class A play at Central-Talbotton. GO RED DEVILS!!

Whoever made the 2004-05 Trion schedule must own a gas company. First the Bulldogs made the long ride to Commerce. This week, Monticello travels 165 miles to Trion. We hope those schoolbus seats are well padded.

Portal, the early surprise team of Region 3-A, should go to 4-0 when the Panthers host winless Jenkins County in their region opener. The Eagles have been grounded in their first 3 games, being outscored 160-7.

Athens Academy and Jefferson may both go 4-0 in Region 8-A. The Spartans travel to Marietta to play the Walker Wolverines before hosting our Red Devils in two weeks. Jefferson hosts Whitefield Academy, which was trampled by Bremen last week.

Hawkinsville and Twiggs County will roll over their 4-A rivals this week. (Expect this paragraph to be repeated OFTEN.) GO RED DEVILS!!

Washington-Wilkes travels west to Covington to take on 2-AAAAA's Newton Rams. The Tigers are still in search of their first 2004 win, against two losses and a tie. A tough early season schedule often pays off during region play and the postseason, but will the folks in TigerTown exhibit the patience a team needs? Of course, a W-W win on October 15 means all else will be forgiven and forgotten.

Lincoln County travels to Commerce next week. This week, the Tigers are expected to get back on the winning track in Homer when they play the Banks County Leopards. The Tigers need to find a defense, allowing an average of 32 points per game enroute to a 1-2 record. GO RED DEVILS!! (ok ok, we're a week early for the Commerce game)
