Nearly 800yds total offense between teams. TC scored on long pass. LC scored on long run, long pass, & 30y run. Big game off/def for Freeman: 200y rush & intercept at LC10 to setup clinching TD. Great run after intercept 3rd/19 for 30y, breaking 6 tackles across the field & back.
Fri, Dec 1Toombs CountyW14-7H['more']
Toombs was Lyons (Bulldogs). Big crowd both sides. LC/TC fans brought noisemakers (horns, rocks in bottles). Fans on field before game. Everything went wrong: gate broke, PA bad during anthem, headsets broke, officials poor, execution poor. Def struggle. LC scored in 1st, but celebration penalty forced long PAT-K that failed. TC scored in 2nd after LC fumbled punt at LC35. 28yd run setup TD to give TC 7-6 lead. LC had several chances but did not score. Got ball after punt w/3:00 left; Leverett rushed for 7 on 4/3 to keep drive alive. Hit Tutt on 4 passes, last at 1" line w/0:08 left; Freeman went up-and-over w/0:05 left to win game. Freeman earlier had 30yd TD called back; officials said he was down and blew whistle (early?). Toombs ended at 12-1.
Fri, Dec 8BufordW14-0H['more']
All 4 semifinalists (+ Macon Co. & Manchester) 13-0. Macon beat Manchester 13-9 at Dome. Buford coached by ex-AAAA Marietta coach (Dexter Woods) who had coached Ga QB Eric Zeire. Campbell: "best coached team he had seen". Cold but mostly dry after forecast for sleet. Solid LC off/def. Buford had great QB that was held to negative rushing & <100 passing. He was intercepted twice by LC to double his total for year. Int at L4 late in 4th clinched win. LC used smoke for entrance.
Sat, Dec 16Macon CountyW12-0H['more']
#1 Macon (14-0), LC#2. MC beat Charlton, Metter, Manchester. Big team. Manchester asst coach (ex Devil player) said Manch could beat LC by 13. Huge crowd for 6pm start (due to WW-EC & Josey at home). Freeman scored on 2 runs. Great passing by Leverett to Tutt & Albea. Smoke on entrance. MC's huge sign tore before players could run thru it. MC did not cross M46, as their huge, heralded running attack gained 49yd in 1st half, 21 in 2nd. Passing game was "horrendous". Freeman 2nd effort on 2nd TD left MC players crying on field. MC 73-7 over 6 yrs, but no state titles (59-1 reg season). LC had 108rush, 155 pass. MC came on school buses (2 team, 3 band, 5 students) + 4 chartered fan buses. MC had allowed only 33 pts during reg season. LC defense ranked #4 overall.
