Big showdown in Henry County between Stockbridge, Dutchtown

Games to watch in Class AAAA

Dutchtown (5-2, 1-1) at No. 7 Stockbridge (5-1, 1-0): This is a matchup between Region 4-AAAA Division A’s highest-scoring team (Dutchtown, 33 points per game) and the region’s stingiest defense (Stockbridge, 11 points allowed per game). Stockbridge has won five straight but will have its hands full with Bulldogs quarterback Donovahn Jones. Stockbridge has won five of the eight games between the two schools, including a 28-12 victory in 2011.

Shaw (3-3) at No. 3 Carrollton (4-2): In a Region 5-AAAA Carrollton, behind running back Trey Chivers, has scored 46.4 points per game over its last five contests. This one has great potential to be a shootout. Shaw quarterback Chandler Whittlesey has given opponents fits and last week accounted for four touchdowns against top-ranked Sandy Creek.

Baldwin (4-2, 3-0) at Westside-Macon (5-1, 3-0): In a battle for the top spot in Region 2-AAAAA, Baldwin and Westside have each cruised since starting region play. The winner gets the inside track to the region title while the loser likely falls into a group of five teams duking it out for three playoff spots. Behind quarterback Noah Grayer, Westside is averaging 40 points per game, while Baldwin and QB Tajhea Chambers have scored 111 points in their last three games.

Gilmer (5-1, 1-0) at Pickens (4-2, 2-0): In this key 7-AAAA Division A showdown, Gilmer has scored 30 or more points in five of its six games, overcoming the fact that the Bobcats have allowed 79 points in their last three contests. The Bobcats last started 6-1 in 19997. Pickens, which has topped 40 points three times, is off to its best start in six years.

Ridgeland (5-1, 2-0) at Northwest Whitfield (4-2, 1-1): Ridgeland and explosive Vonn Bell look to tighten their grip on the 7-AAAA Division B. The Panthers have won five straight since loosing to Calhoun in the season opener, and they’ve scored at least 35 points every week. Northwest is looking to recover from a disappointing loss to Dalton last week that dropped them into a second-place logjam in the sub-region.

Dutchtown is Headed to the Dome this year,and Stockbridge is just a Road Block on the way to the Georgia Dome. D. Jones is the Best QB not Ranked in the Top 10 in the Southeast. Go Dogs. We Don’t WASTE Gas!!!

Baldwin is at home against Westside, should be a good game or could be a sloppy game, both coming off a bye week last week. Go Baldwin Braves!!

Even though I am an ex Griffin Bear and current booster (and still love them dearly) I will be going to the Stockbridge – Dutchtown game tonight. I guess I will call it “scouting” to put my mind at ease! Griffin is home versus North Clayton for homecoming, which is the main reason I am not going. The outcome of the Stockbridge game is mega-important to Griffin since the tigers eeeked out a win against us a few week back. Hoping Dutchtown can play a COMPLETE game and get the win which should solidify Griffin’s Stronghold on first place in the region. My gut feeling is that Stockbridge will be too tough for them, however, seeing how Locust Grove come back and layed the smack-down on them like they did. Looks like the Bears from Griffin may end up as a second seed….grrrrrr.

They vandalized our school and still didnt bring their A game. Their coaches and many of their players were trying to bait stockbridge into confrontations which was classless. Wish you all could of seen our score board and press box before the graffitti was removed.
