Class AAAA games to watch


Games to watch in Class AAAA:

No. 4 Carrollton (6-2, 5-0) at No. 1 Sandy Creek (8-0, 5-0): The battle for the Region 5-AAAA title features two of the state’s best offenses and two solid defenses in a rematch of the 2010 Class AAA state final. The big question is whether Carrollton can slow down Sandy Creek QB Cole Garvin (1,586 passing yards, 14 TDs) and RB Eric Swinney (801 yards, 12 Tds).

No. 2 Marist (7-1, 4-0) at Chamblee (8-0, 4-0), North DeKalb Stadium: Running back Dezmin Reed leads the unranked Bulldogs against Marist. The Bulldogs have reversed their fortunes from a year ago, when they went 4-6, including a 28-3 loss to the War Eagles. Marist and quarerback Myles Willis have put up 38 points per game over the past five contests.

No. 6 Monroe Area (8-0, 5-0) at Chestatee (7-1, 5-0): Monroe Area coach Matt Fligg returns to Chestatee, where he started the program and coached from 2002 to 2005. This could easily be the shootout of the week; Monroe Area averages 48 points per game while Chestatee averages 40.

No. 10 Cairo (6-2, 5-0) at Monroe-Albany (6-2, 4-1): Cairo and quarterback Donald Thomas have averaged 35 points over their past five games, but it’s been the defense that has been really impressive. The Syrupmakers have three shutouts and have held two other opponents to a touchdown. Monroe has won four straight. Cairo beat the Tornadoes 33-7 in 2011.

Grady (7-1, 4-0) at Carver-Atlanta (8-0, 4-0), Lakewood Stadium: The top seed is on the line in Region 6-AAAA Division B in this one. Carver’s Montravious Taylor has rushed for 491 yards in the past two games. The Panthers have survived three games decided by three points or less, including last week’s 22-19 win over Washington. The Grey Knights have held four opponents to a touchdown or less and have won five straight since a 28-14 loss to Riverdale on Sept. 14.

The best games in Region 6-AAAA so far this year for both sub-regions. Hope all the teams play their best and that we all stay healthy as the playoffs approach.

Jefferson-got to agree with you. Assuming Ridgeland in #1 in R7 then you would play #4 in R5-no big deal.The second round would also favor Ridgeland.This could help heal some of the past disapointments.The 3rd round would likely be against Cairo-a good team but winnable.Good luck.

I dunno. Our special teams and defense have been suspect of late. Trey Chivers will be tough to stop. We will have to rely on our offense to outscore theirs.

Just as large a question may be – Can Sandy Creek stop Trey Chivers behind Carrollton’s huge offensive line?

I also agree on the Ridgeland team. I expect them to make a deep run this season with all that offensive talent. Vonn Bell is a stud, but the Bridges kid may be just as good.

Carrollton-Sandy Creek
This is a game on paper that SC should win, but Carrollton has grown up since starting out with a very tough non region schedule with a young team. My only prediction here will be you’ll be sorry if you’re not in attendance!

Just want to know

@ Sandy Creek win BIG… That wouldn’t hurt my feelings but I doubt it. Who ever wins it won’t be by a lot. The only way it’s big is if one team turns the ball over a lot.

Good thing it’s not played on paper cause the trogans will win by 7 on grass or turf

Jefferson; I’m with ya man, that Ridgeland team is very talented, and its just not Von Bell. They have several guys that can go the distance on any play.
Bulldawg; Good point! Trey Chivers is the real deal, as is Bridges from Ridgeland.
WestGa Tojan; Excellent Prediction. I am very tempted to bypass the Calhoun game tonight and go see the SC/Carrollton Train Wreck, but….. gotta stay here and support the Jackets!
Bird dog; Another good point ;-)
