News and Notes from Area 5

October 23, 2020

# Heritage (0-1) hosts Central Carrollton (1-0) and NWGA’s leading rusher Narada Levette in a 7AAAA matchup. The Generals were surprised last week 21-14 at Ridgeland and will need a big defensive effort this week to slow the Lions.

# Gordon Lee (0-1) hosts undefeated Mt. Zion (1-0) in an important 6A Public matchup. If the Trojans want to host a playoff game in November a win over the Eagles is a must.

# LFO fresh off a big upset of Sonoraville heads to face #8 AAA Rockmart. If the Warriors can pull this one off it would be the biggest statistical upset in NWGA in the past 5 years. (43 point underdogs)

# Northwest Whitfield host #5 AAAAA Cedartown in a must win for the Bruins if they want to host a playoff game in November. Sophomore QB Owen Brooker , 2nd in passing in NWGA, will need to have a big game for the Bruins to pull the upset.

# The #12 Temple Tigers travel to Heard County in the Region 5AA opener. Important game for both teams. Every win counts in a 5 team Region and a win here almost assures a post season birth.

# Villa Rica is big favorites over a struggling North Springs. The Wildcats have a big couple weeks coming up after Friday to improve their spot in the Region standings.

# The 6A Public leading Bowdon Red Devils take a week off from 6A play and head to #5 North Cobb Christian.

#3 Callaway vs #6 Haralson Co postponed until at least Tuesday due to Covid.
