Playoff Outlook (10/31)

We will take a look at how each Region is stacking up as we wind down 2020. Several teams, Villa Rica, Gordon Central and Dade Co helped themselves last night with wins.

5-AAAAA

1 (4-0) Carrollton

2 (3-1) Douglass

3T (3-1) Rome

3T (3-1) Alexander

Last Night: Only one game : East Paulding defeated Paulding County 41-19 it what more than likely ended Paulding Co chance at making the playoffs.

Carrollton still has games left with Alexander and Douglas Co.

Douglas Co gets the nod at 2 with a tiebreaking win over Alexander.

This Week: Alexander visits Rome. If Alexander wins Douglas Co most likely finishes the #2 seed, Alexander #3 and Rome #4.

If Rome wins it sets up a game Nov 13 vs Douglas County for what would be the #2 spot and a home playoff game.

Early line has Rome by 3.

7-AAAAA

1 (2-0) Cartersville

2 (1-0) Blessed Trinity

3 (2-1) Calhoun

4 (1-2) Hiram

The big matchup between Cartersville and Blessed Trinity was cancelled Friday due to Covid. Hopefully it will be rescheduled and will serve to be the Region title game.

Hiram Hornets pulled a big upset over Cass Friday 38-14 and took control of the #4 spot. All the Hornets have left to do now is beat Woodland 11/13 and they will clinch a spot in the post season.

This week: Big guys vs the little guys. Big guys look to avoid a letdown. Cass needs a win over Calhoun this week or over Blessed Trinity next week to keep slim playoff hopes alive.

6-AAAAA

1 (3-1) Chapel Hill

2 (3-1) Villa Rica

3 (2-1) Lithia Springs

4 (2-1) Manchester

Villa Rica holds the tiebreaker over Lithia Spring with their 30-27 win Friday night . They face New Manchester Friday at home and a win will more than likely give them the #2 seed in the playoffs (they lost to Chapel Hill earlier in the season)

7AAAA

1 (3-0) Cedartown

2T (1-1) Central Carroll

2T (1-1) Ridgeland

4 (1-2) Northwest Whitfield

Things could get confusing in 7AAAA before it is over. Cedartown has a firm grasp on the Region right now. Central Carroll can still win the Region if they can run the table including a win at Cedartown on 11/13.

Northwest Whitfield Bruins got a much needed win over Heritage Friday and are sitting in the #4 spot.

Heritage is now in a tough spot with losses to Ridgeland and NW if tiebreakers come into play.

Pickens has been on covid quarantine for 2 weeks and could still factor in once their play resumes. Their only loss in the Region is vs Cedartown.

This Week: No Region games scheduled. Region play will resume 11/13

6AAA

1 (5-0) Rockmart

2T (4-1) North Murray

2T (4-1) Adairsville

4 (4-1) LaFayette

All 4 top teams got wins this weekend. Barring a monumental upset Rockmart should win the Region (Adairsville will have a say this week).

The Battle is going to be for the #2 spot and the right to host a playoff game. Adairsville holds tiebreaker over LaFayette and the game Nov 6th ..North Murray at Adairsville will determine the #2 seed.

This Week: Adairsville hosts Region leading Rockmart and a win by the Tigers would put them in the top spot.

7AAA

Gilmer dropped to 1-3 in the Region but the formula is simple for them. Win the next 2 weeks over West Hall and White County and they are in the playoffs. Lose 1 and they are probably out.

5AA

1T (1-0) Callaway

1T (1-0) Haralson Co

3 (1-1) Temple

4T (0-1) Bremen

4T (0-1) Heard Co

This Week: Heard at Haralson; Temple at Bremen

Bremen and Heard Co can shake things up this week with upset wins but it looks right now like the Bremen at Heard Co game on Nov 13 is the Rabun Co sweepstakes. Winner gets the #4 seed and loser missed the playoffs.

Thanks to a big 3OT win last night over Temple the Haralson Co vs Callaway game on Nov 10th will be for the Region title, barring upsets and that is not far fetched in this Region loaded with good teams.

7AA

1 (3-0) Fannin Co

2T (2-1) Model

2T (2-1) Pepperell

4 (1-1) Chattooga

Dade County and Gordon Central shook things up this week. Dade upset Chattooga and GC scored 3 TDs late to beat Coosa. Both are licking their chops now waiting for the Indians to drop another game.

Fannin has wins over Model and Pepperell and has more or less wrapped up the Region Title.

Gordon Central get their chance Tuesday when they visit Chattooga. A win by the Warriors would slide them into the #4 spot.

Dades playoff chances probably depend on the Nov 13th game when they host Gordon Central. If the Wolverines can avoid being upset by Coosa a win over the Warriors could put them in the #4 spot.

6A Public

1 (2-0) Bowdon

2 (1-0) BEST

3 (1-1) Gordon Lee

4 (1-1) Mt. Zion

Barring something crazy happening these are your 4 playoff teams in 6A.

Gordon Lee visits BEST Thursday night and the winner will probably host a playoff game the last week of November. A BEST win Thursday puts them in a position to challenge Bowdon for the Region Title when they visit the Red Devils on Nov 13.

7A Private

1 (2-0) Christian Heritage

2 (1-0) North Cobb Christian

3 (1-1) Darlington

4 (0-1) Mt. Paran

Big win for Christian Heritage over Darlington Friday night putting them in a position to win the Region title.

The Lions host North Cobb Christian the final week of the season and barring any upsets this game will be for the Region title.

Darlington hosts North Cobb this Friday and a win by the Tigers will give them a potential home playoff game and could set up a 3 way tie for the top spot if North Cobb beats Christian Heritage Nov 20.

The #4 spot will be Mt. Paran v Walker winner
