AAAAAA roundup

By Score Atlanta

Archer 46, Mountain View 7: Ernest Alexander rushed for 115 yards and four scores and also had a touchdown reception in host Archer’s blowout victory. Quarterback K.J. Parmer was an efficient 7-for-11 passing for 117 yards and a touchdown, and Sean Fowler added another 136 yards on the ground with a score. Kicker Zach Wachholz connected on field goals from 43 and 36 yards.

Central Gwinnett 27, Collins Hill 21: The visiting Black Knights turned Collins Hill over on downs with two minutes remaining and ran out the clock to preserve the victory. Central Gwinnett senior quarterback Emmanuel Westmoreland was 18-of-28 passing for 214 yards and three touchdowns, while sophomore running back Jonathan Hawkins rushed for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Duluth 22, Berkmar 15: Visiting Duluth came back from a 15-8 deficit in the fourth quarter to pick up the win. The Wildcats rallied on a long pass play to Jordan Dandridge, who was brought down at the goalline and set up a Lavonte Cranford one-yard touchdown on the next play. Later in the quarter, Will DeLorenzo completed a touchdown pass to Dandridge off a bootleg. DeLorenzo had two touchdown passes.

East Coweta 35, Henry County 7: The Indians played host to Henry County and took care of business at home, especially on the ground. Dee Godfrey led the Indians with 150 yards on 18 carries including three touchdowns. Godfrey scored on rushes of 35-yards, 38-yards and six-yards. Quarterback Bryce Gemmel also got in on the action scoring a touchdown on a three-yard quarterback sneak.

Langston Hughes 26, Creekside 14: The Panthers took care of visiting Creekside using their aerial attack to defeat the Seminoles by 12. Kenny Moxey led the Panthers with a pair of touchdown passes along with a rushing touchdown, while back-up quarterback Kinan Humphrey also had a touchdown pass. Stephan Whitehead added a field goal to help lead Hughes to the victory.

Lovejoy 44, Mundy’s Mill 6: The visiting Wildcats dominated the hosting Tigers from start to finish. Lovejoy quarterback Alejandro Benefield threw four passing touchdowns and Travis Custis combined to gather 101 rushing and receiving yards. The Wildcats were able to bring home their first victory of the season and started with 41 unanswered points to take down the Tigers.

Marietta 27, Pope 7: Anthony Jennings was the ring leader of a dominating Blue Devils’ performance. In the first half, Jennings was 18-for-19 passing and scored four first-half touchdowns, two by air and two by ground. The half-time lead held and heavy doses of the running game wore down the Greyhounds. Marietta finished with nearly 400 yards total offense and went for 164 yards on the ground.

Norcross 35, South Gwinnett 20: The visiting Blue Devils put on an offensive clinic against the host Comets. Trailing early, Norcross was able to rally past South Gwinnett and take control late in the second half to blow the game open. Bernard Morrison did return a kick off for an 85-yard touchdown for South Gwinnett. Jordan Ramey threw two touchdown passes in a losing effort.

North Forsyth 10 Forsyth Central 7: The host Bulldogs got on the board with a 39-yard touchdown pass from C.J. Cochran to Jeremiah Jones, but could not find any points after that. The visiting Raiders were tied at seven until a late FG with 5:33 left gave them the 10-7 lead. The Bulldogs tried to tie the game back up, but the 46-yard attempt with 58 seconds remaining sailed left.

South Cobb 29, Westlake 22: Kyle Jennings threw two touchdown passes of 22 and 28 yards to 6-foot-9 receiver Clarence Williams to lead the host Eagles over the Lions. South Cobb earned its first victory of the season, while Westlake fell to 0-2. The Eagles were able to control the ball offensively, with 260 total yards of offense, mostly in the first half of play.

It pains me to say it, but GRATS to Grayson….they kinda clobbered that team from Miami. @ class of 10…….supposed to be a Ga paper u doofus.

Well it only took one week for the South Ga people to start boo hoo hooing about not being covered by an ATLANTA newspaper. Hardly anybody up here obsesses over high school football like you South Ga people do. For the most part nobody up here cares if some rural town/county beat some other rural town/county in the southern part of the state up here. You really think the ajc has resources to send someone to the middle of nowhere from Atlanta to cover a high school game that 99% of people up here could less about?

hey 5-time don’t be a hater….you actually have to communicate your scores in writing to the ajc…. which could be a problem for those in south ga.

Newsflash, what part of “AAAAAA Roundup” don’t you understand? If your hometown paper intends to cover only the hometown teams, then it should read “North Georgia AAAAAA Roundup.” Four of the top ten AAAAAA teams are from Region 1 last time I checked so it’s a pretty poor excuse for a “Roundup” if it doesn’t deign to cover the top 10.

LOL….Hater?? Never that!! Lowndes didn’t beat a little rural town team. We dominated an Atlanta area football team. So you’d think it would have been covered. Luella is from the Atlanta area right?? NEWSFLASH….The hell is you talkin about?? All I’m saying is, I have nowhere to blog about my team. I see Lowndes nowhere on here!!….

Dear John,

The only teams in AAAAAA not from metro Atlanta are the teams in region 1. Nobody up here really cares who you played. If people even do care about high school football around here they aren’t concerned with teams miles and hours away from here. Sorry the people of Atlanta aren’t obsessed with high school football like a lot of you South Ga people are. Also notice they didn’t give a Roundup of every game in AAAAAA played last night smart guy. You don’t see anyone boo hoo hoooing about that from around here do you? Just the South Ga people crying on the ATLANTA paper again.

Dear 5- Time,

Yes Luella is in Henry Co not to far from Atlanta Motor Speedway. You notice that the Roundup only covered 10 games. Not every game in AAAAAA. You see Lowndes nowhere on here in the ATLANTA paper because Lowndes is NOWHERE near Atlanta and nobody up here cares about Lowndes high school football. Sorry it is what it is. I’m sure Lowndes/Valdosta has a newspaper though.

who cares if the ajc talks about our south ga. teams, all them teams up there and just a hand full down here and we will still out play them, year in and year out, i wish they would not even rank us with them teams up there. let them pick there top ten teams from up there.

LOL….Of course they don’t care!! And rightfully so lol…..And what does the newspaper have anything to do with blogging?? Anyways….Almost Game Time for cross-town rival Valdosta. Dang, why they have to be playing in the Atlanta area….hope another Region 1-AAAAAA Team pulls out the win.

Hey Newsflash, might wanna check who the state champs were in the highest classification since 2002(last 10 years). ….u must be from cobb or dekalb. The AJC props u limp noodles up all year. Then, u have to play someone from Region 1AAAAAA. and reality sets in…..

With a much more high powered offense and the same dominant defense from last year you’d be insane to overlook the Lovejoy Wildcats. After a 44-6 dismantling of Mundy’s Mill (41-0) at halftime the Cats are poised to return to make a run in 6A, but this friday they’ll be traveling to Moultrie to take on Colquitt County. I hope they’re ready for a second loss.

Dear Mighty Mighty Wildcats,

Nope… I don’t live in Cobb, Dekalb or in even in Gwinnett for that matter. I personally could care less who most of the state champs were in highest classification the last 10 years. Let me guess are most from “big boy football region 1 the SEC of high school football?” Your cracking me up with limp noodles. Then we have to play region 1 and reality sets in. HAHA stop your making my side hurt. Reality is life up here doesn’t revolve around high school football or any high school sport really. It’s not like towns and communities here get all down in the dumps or to on a huge emotional high over high school sports. The only thing region 1 has going for it is football. Lord knows we don’t see any region 1 teams go deep in the playoffs in any of the other sports.

*I* care about region 1 and anyone up here that doesn’t is in my opinion is being slightly shortsighted. They will be there strong in the playoffs and if you don’t think so, you have your head in the sand and some rather sensitive areas of your anatomy exposed! I don’t think 6AR1 is God’s gift like some do but they undoubtedly will be a force to be reckoned with. I would love to see more info on them.

You’re absolutely right NEWSFLASH, communities take the time and effort to support its’ sports teams….it’s called community. Many areas around metro Atlanta are too busy or don’t support their school/school teams. Therefore private school enrollment, charters, etc. split communities/areas and much of the vitality surrounding a local school is lost. I smell condescension or disdain all over your post that fans from S. Ga. teams were expecting to be included in the AAAAAA roundup from the newspaper of S. Ga.’s capital too.

Fred – enjoyed the game against Miami Central. Was figuring that it would have the pregame spirit of Brookwood, Central being the #1 USA Today team, but the Rams fans seemed rather casual, I thought, and the fans showed up late. Nkemdiche touted the Central offense upon taking the field, which I thought was poor sportsmanship, but, then he, and the rest of the team, backed it up. Maybe Central was too far from home? You think Grayson this year is that good, or was Central simply showing first-game-itis. It WAS their first game, after all.

Enough of this sour puss, sour grape, whining from south GA. Unnecessary, entirely bush league. Lowndes and Camden have proved themselves on the field year in and year out, Colquitt hasn’t won it all, but has won a lot. Then there’s Valdosta. Anybody with any brains or sense of history knows that. So, whiners, knock it off. Grow up. Get some class. Mind you, that’s not directed at Camden74 or some of the other folks that simply know better.

Lovejoy good luck beating Colquitt, the crowd and the referees. After two season visiting that place I’m 100% certain the referees will cheat for Propst. You guys need to beat them soundly to keep the striped shirts at bay. If you don’t they will screw you just as sure as their black fans will be sitting next to your fans on the visitor side.

This blog is full of conflicted people…complaining about no South GA coverage from a newspaper over 3 hours away, complaints about left wing philosophy, and funniest of all…complaints about having to sit next to people who look like me!! Being a football fan must be really tough and full of internal conflict for you guys. I mean a sport that features African American players yet you carry these issues…must be real hard to reconcile these conflicts.

as the paper name say ATLANTA journal constitution. folks in south georgia(anything below macon), we dont matter to these north georgia yankees! they all know that the road to the championship in 6a will have go through region 1. they just dont want to talk about it right now, its too early. its no different than the SEC. the rest of the country refuses to accept the fact that the SEC owns college football! sportswriters have always toughted usc,michigan,ohio state and the like but know in their hearts that the national championship goes through the SEC; again, its just too early to admit it!! lets play some football!!!
