State Recap for Week 5: Ivan Whirls Schedule, Aquinas now 4-0

September 13, 2004

Ivan The Terrible certainly mangled the schedule this fifth week of 2004 football.

Aquinas, the Catholic school in Augusta, is now 4-0 after a resounding 43-8 win over Our Lady of Mercy Saturday afternoon in Fairburn. The Irish play Glascock County next, so they very well could be undefeated going into Lincolnton October 1. Remember 1972?

Pacelli kept its record perfect, but certainly got a scare from Taylor County in a 21-18 win Saturday night. Those two teams compete with Randolph-Clay in 2-A.

When is the last time that Bowdon, Commerce, and Miller County were all out of the Class A Top 10 at the same time? All three teams lost again this weekend, so they won't be entering the Top 10 for a while. Miller County was surprised by Region 1-A foe Atkinson County 28-14. Bowdon was walloped 43-0 by Carrollton, #3 in Class AAA.

The larger Class A regions are now into region play. Wilkinson County's game against Twiggs County was rescheduled for next week since both teams had open dates. ECI was beaten by McIntosh County Academy 26-18 in a minor upset in 3-A.

Bremen whipped Landmark Christian 35-0 in a cross-region game. Bremen is having one of its best seasons ever, while Landmark Christian is wondering what has happened to their successful program.

Jefferson shellacked Class AA Oglethorpe County 30-0. Trion blocked an extra point to preserve a 14-13 win over Social Circle.

Washington-Wilkes fell to 1-3-1 after a 26-21 loss in Eatonton to 7-AA's Putnam County.

Athens Academy took this week off to prepare for their visitors next week: the Lincoln County Red Devils. #1 Hawkinsville was also off this week.
