@BcS2010. SWD won an ugly game marred by penalties on both teams. Final score SWD 14-Mays 7. Tough loss second week in a row for gutsy Mays team.

East looked sloppy or not focused, the 1st half, how ever you look at it. The second half looked alot better. East has alot of offensive weapons. You can’t really key on any one person, or you will get burned by someone else. These teams that keep putting 8 and 9 in the box to stop Kyler and Kamani from running up the yards, will get to see what our evolving passing game looks like. We spread the ball around well in my opinion, last nights scores came from 5 different players 28, 30, 24, 2, 22 and two field goals (good to see by the way). With more and more players returning, able to play every week is really going to make us a stronger team down the road when it really matters! Defense is looking better every week, but we still have some work to do! EP Baby!!!!!!

Oh man, NSWR fans already calling for Tucker. Why don’t you guys take it back below the gnat line and take care of your own business. I’ll tell tou right now this Tucker team is not near as quick on the outside Wing-T as they were last year. BUT, they are the biggest Tucker team I have ever seen up front. They are huge! We all know what happened last time you NSWR guys talked so much. Don’t make Tucker bring up “The Fumble”and then an interception to seal the game..

Maybe AJC’s limited coverage of EAST is a good thing. “Under the radar……………”

Good game for the Raiders last night. All I’ll say is New Manchester got beat buy “A COUNTRY MILE”. “HEY NEW MANCHESTER I SAID THAT IT WAS” “A COUNTRY MILE”. E.P. fans loved your announcer last night.

The RAIDERS from EAST cruised to another shutoff win, controlling the game from the start in a 47 / 0 win over NEW MANCHESTER…The Jaguars coach after a close loss to WOODLAND / BARTOW last week was quoted in the Douglas Sentinel telling his players they could “SHOCK THE STATE next week when they beat EAST PAULDING at home!” and their announcer last night kept using the phrase “it’s a LONG country mile” whenever EAST would have 3rd and long on a drive…WELL guys it’s like this NEW MANCHESTER has a LOOOOOOONG country mile to go before it’s ready to SHOCK anything when it steps on the field with EAST PAULDING!!!!

NEW MANCHESTER is a new program, it’s in the learning phase…you are 2 / 3 on the year and have ROME, ALLATOONA, SOUTH PAULDING, VILLA RICA & HIRAM left on your schedule!!! Can you even see one more win out of these 5 games?

Congratulations go out to NORTH PAULDING’s Wolfpack on their home win against HIRAM 43 / 27!! This puts NORTH at 3 / 1 and solidly in the # 3 spot in Region Play!!! NORTH has WOODLAND / BARTOW, SOUTH PAULDING, ROME, PAULDING COUNTY, ALLATOONA, & VILLA RICA left on their schedule…they could easily be 7 / 3 or with a touch of luck 8 / 2 come the playoffs!! Congratulations to Coach Jones & his staff (I bet it feels better than being at Kennesaw Mtn.Coach! LOL!)…Hey Chip I told you I had a feeling about this one!

ALLATOONA also had a good night putting up another “W” to go to 4 / 0….that game on Nov. 9th in “THE BONEYARD” is shaping up to be HUGE!!!

Correction – The final score in the Tucker vs. Dunwoody game was 56-0.

EP played well on offense last night, but they still have glaring weakness at pass defense. They must improve in that area! A good passing QB, would pick our defense apart. Let’s hope this area is worked on before our games against Rome and Allatoona! I believe these are the only two games where I expect them to be competitive. Go RAIDERS!!!! We need a challenge before the playoffs!

Congratulations to Coach Lamar and Coach Stephens (now at Lamar County) and all of the players, parents, coaches, teachers, administrators, students, and fans for setting a new state record of 19 CONSECUTIVE WINS!!!! As they say all records are made to be broken, but in a state that has had power house programs like Valdosta, Buford, and others this is an AMAZING an accomplishment!

Especially given we play in Dekalb County: no REAL home field and no REAL county level support of this GREAT program (or at minimum ability to benefit from our own success which is why so many of our good coaches have left for other programs).

Thanks for the football passion, love, and support from our Tucker community beginning with the Lions, through to Tucker High School and all the way to our Tucker kids now playing on Saturdays and Sundays across the nation!!!!!!!!!!!

We have a legacy to be proud of – But I have a feeling we’re NOT done just yet!!

WE ARE TUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tucker is not ready for northside this year. Northside will roll over Tucker by 2 to 3 touchdowns this year.

@TJ – Perhaps. Still doesn’t erase our win down there last year! And, the run on to an undefeated state championship!!

I stand corrected on the “State” record however. Buford and several others having longer streaks!

Just gives us something to shoot for other than beating NSWR again!!

How is Tucker’s 19-0 a state record when Buford went 47-0 during a stretch from 2001-2004?

@ Copernicus…

That’s what I’m talking about. My Sandy Creek Patriots won 41 in a row and we even knew that wasn’t the state record.

TJ Morris, you don’t have to worry about Tucker contending for the State, however; the State Championship will be won by a Dekalb County team this year in AAAAA, but that team wil be the Stephenson Jagggguars… “Believe that”

The mighty Raiders of East Paulding will fall to The Buc’s of Allatoona.. Remember that you herd it here first!!!!!

@TuNaBuC…The first thing they need to do is teach spelling at Allatoona high. Then you need to set up an appointment with a local shrink to work out these delusions you are having. Your team actually let Woodland put up 20 on them. The Raiders will have a field day with your d.

@ TuNaBuc….

EASY there, slow down a bit…ALLATOONA is playing VERY good ball so far this year and the ALLATOONA / EAST game is shaping up to be THE GAME to see on Nov. 9th…BUT outside of playing ROME, ALLATOONA has played the weakest part of it’s schedule.

ALLATOONA still has to play SOUTH PAULDING, HIRAM, and NORTH PAULDING along with NEW MANCHESTER & VILLA RICA. The NORTH PAULDING game is AT NORTH and they are playing better each week. NORTH is the ONLY team to have scored on EAST this year and they played a HARD first half, they will be playing for a playoff spot possibly # 3 so count on that game being a SHOOTOUT!

If ALLTOONA looses focus either HIRAM or SOUTH PAULDING could trip you up BEFORE you even get to visit “THE BONEYARD”!! BUT let’s assume both teams end up at 9 / 0 on Nov. 9th…what you can count on is a packed house, rockin’ and LOUD…show up early and enjoy the atmosphere of Friday night in “THE BONEYARD” BUT you will take that ride BACK up Hwy. 92 with the buses FILLED with CANNON smoke and the last sight you see leaving “THE BONEYARD” is the scoreboard showing another RAIDER WIN!!!

But then you can remember that ALLATOONA moved up from AAA to AAAAA and finished the year as the # 2 team in REGION 5 AAAAA play. There are 9 OTHER teams that would LOVE to be the # 2 team… You WILL host a HOME playoff game!

@TuNaBuC – It will be a good game one way or another.
A quick comparison of opponents shows different right now.

EP 49 – 0
Allatoona 45 – 20

EP 52 – 0
Allatoona 36 – 0

East has an edge both offensively and defensively. Plus you will be coming to the BoneYard. I’m looking forward to a good game.
