Playoff Race (10/24)

5AAAAAA

1 Carrollton 4-0

2 Douglas Co 3-1

3T Rome 3-1

3T Alexander 3-1

Carrollton still has games left with Alexander and Douglas Co.

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

Rome still has Alexander and Douglas Co on the schedule. The #2 spot is in their hands.

Dark Horse: Paulding Co: They round out the season with the easiest schedule remaining. They finish the season with a trip to Rome and if they can pull the upset coupled with their win over Douglas Co they could sneak into the playoffs.

7AAAAA

1 Cartersville 2-0

2 Blessed Trinity 1-0

3T Calhoun 1-1

3T Cass 1-1

Big one this week when Blessed Trinity visits Cartersville. This one is for the Region title.

Cass can lock up a playoff spot this week with a win at Hiram.

Big games on the horizon: 11/6 Cass at Calhoun; 11/13 Cartersville at Calhoun

AAAA Below AD

7AAAA

1 Cedartown 2-0

2 Ridgeland 1-0

3 Heritage 1-1

4 Central 1-1

Ridgeland visits Cedartown this Friday for the battle for the top spot.

Still a lot to sort out but Ridgeland holds the tiebreaker over Heritage and Heritage over Central thanks to their 28-27 win on Friday.

NW Whitfield has games remaining at Heritage this Friday and host Ridgeland on 11/13, must wins for the Bruins.

Pickens is inactive for 2 weeks due to covid and could factor in late.

6AAA

1 Rockmart 4-0

2T North Murray 3-1

2T Adairsville 3-1

4 LaFayette 3-1

I don’t see anyone challenging Rockmart for the 6AAA Title. It is theirs to lose.

Adairsville holds the tiebreaker with a win over LaFayette and will host North Murray 11/13 with a possible home playoff game on line.

Dark Horse: Ringgold: The Tigers will need some help but they hold a tiebreaker over Adairsville.

7AAA

Gilmer is 1-2 in Region play with loses to two of the top teams in the Region (Cherokee Bluffs and Dawson Co).

The Bobcats host Region leading North Hall this week. It would be great if they were able to pull the upset but even if they don’t they can get into the playoffs with win the final 2 weeks of the season vs West Hall and the final game vs White Co. (That game may end up being a playoff game before the playoffs)

5AA

1 Temple 1-0

2T Callaway 0-0

2T Haralson Co 0-0

2T Bremen 0-0

Temple can breath a sigh of relief with their comeback win in OT over Heard Co.

Callaway and Haralson Co are scheduled to make up their game Tuesday due to a Covid cancelation on Friday. Then both turn around and play Saturday: Callaway v Bremen and Haralson v Temple.

Dark Horse: Heard Co: The Braves will have to win 1 of the last 3 over Callaway, Bremen, or Haralson Co to get in.

7AA

1T Fannin Co 2-0

1T Model 2-0

3 Chattooga 1-0

4 Pepperell 1-1

Big one this Week when the Model Blue Devils travel to Fannin Co with the 7AA top spot on line.

Pepperell and Gordon Central play a make up game on Monday and I’m willing to go on a limb and say if the Dragons win the 4 team playoff field is set. It will just be a matter of setting the order going forward.

Single A Below Ad

6A Public

1 Bowdon 2-0

2 Gordon Lee 1-1

3 Mt. Zion 1-1

4 BEST 0-0

I like Bowdon’s chances at winning the Region Title with their win over Gordon Lee 2 weeks ago.

Gordon Lee had a big win (42-7) over Mt. Zion Friday that gives them the inside track to the #2 spot.

Still waiting to see what BEST bring to the table in 6A. Their game at Armuchee was canceled Friday. They will open the 6A schedule at Trion on Friday.

Dark Horse: Trion: If Trion can upset BEST this week they still have Mt.Zion on the schedule 11/13. A win over the Eagles could potentially get them in the playoffs.

7A Private

1T Christian Heritage 1-0

1T Darlington 1-0

3 North Cobb Christian 0-0

4T Walker 0-1

4T Mt. Paran 0-1

Another 5 team Region where every week counts.

Darlington survived a scare this week. Coming from behind to beat a good Mt. Paran team 30-27. Setting up a showdown at Christian Heritage for the top spot.

The winner of this one will have their eyes set on North Cobb Christian for the Region Title. Loser in all likelihood travels week 1 of the playoffs.
