Week 6: Clinch Sinks Miller's Pirates

September 26, 2004

Quizzy called last weekend Upset Week in Class A, and we have no reason to disagree.

We're not surprised that #2 Clinch County beat Miller County in a Region 1-A matchup, but we are stunned the final score was 49-0. And Clinch apparently started substituting early. We may see a two-team race in 2004 Class A yet - Hawkinsville and Clinch. Hawkinsville beat Johnson County 49-22, so go ahead and put their name on the 4-A trophy.

As expected, Aquinas walloped Glascock County 42-0 Friday night for the Irish's best start in decades. This Friday night in Lincolnton, on Homecoming Night, the game will be at least a wee bit tougher for the 5-0 kids from Augusta.

Portal is now 5-0 after squeaking out a 16-14 win over Calvary Baptist in Savannah. Portal should move up a notch in the poll this week.

Hmmmm ... I guess this is a coincidence, but Randolph-Clay, like Pacelli, scored 53 points on 2-A foe Calhoun County. Those southwest Red Devils shutout Calhoun, while Pacelli allowed 6. Both Pacelli and R-C should be undefeated when they meet in Columbus October 22. i

Wilkinson County's extra week of practice due to Hurricane Ivan seemed to helped, but not quite enough. Wilkinson lost to Twiggs County 26-13.

Warren County beat up on Oglethorpe County 25-7. GMC and Hancock Central were both idle before starting Region 7-A play this coming Friday.

Washington-Wilkes had an open date last Friday, but we understand from our best source that their coach and one of their most vehement supporters were seen in Greensboro and in among some red-&-white fans near Athens. That supporter even got a little gift from Tradition; will he show it in his place of business in TigerTown?
