And with that,……gilmer goes back to being,….gilmer. Nice little run over the past couple seasons,..coming on the heels of a truly wretched stretch of 4 wins in 6 years. At least they will have experience when the losing starts again.

Go Trojans!

Here is the link if you want to see all the final scores.

Thoughts: Intriguing games of SC – Eastside, Carrollton-Stephens and Statesboro – Mary Parsons all turned out to be routs.

Region 5 went 3 – 1, Region 8 was 1 – 3. The rest were 2 – 2.

Westside-Macon was the only top seed to lose last night.

Same cast of strong competitors after this round: Sandy Creek, Burke County, Marist
Monroe, Ridgeland and Stockbridge are hanging around except that Monroe seemed to struggle with a poor Shaw team last night.

Looks like some good games for this upcoming Friday.

I also have too much time on my hands on an early Saturday morning……

Go Trojans! Let’s take it to Marist on Friday!

Well, well, well. I thought it was going to be Bears vs. Bears next week down there in Burke County. Ok. Gotta rethink this thang hea. My scenario was Burke vs. Griffin, Bears victor. Then Burke vs Da Creek, which will be one hell ova game. Now my scenario has changed to Bear vs. Monroe (Albany), Bears victor. Then Burke vs Da Creek, which will be one hell ova game.

Ok, here it goes. The prediction is…,
If and when Burke Co. plays Sandy Creek, the winner of that game will go on to the dome. How bout it???

Don’t count out Monroe (Albany)!!! They have a very good defense and may be time enough for Burke AND Creek!!
The Carrollton vs Marist game might as well be considered to have a running clock. Halftime will start promptly at 8pm.

Creekster if Burke County make it to the round with Sandy Creek it should be a good game. I am a Bear fan but I have to admit Sandy Creek is a team with a lot of talent. If we get pass Monroe-Albany, to beat the Creek we have to play a perfect game and hope Creek make some mistakes. My heart is with the Bears but I wouldn’t bet against Creek. I seen them on GPB and they have a lot of talent. Carrollton spread offense was moving the ball against Creek but they don’t have the speed Burke County have. I do believe whoever win the 3rd round in our bracket should go to the dome and win it all.

Wayne, you are absolutely correct. And maybe some may say that we should not be skipping the Burke-Monroe (Albany) meeting, but hey, it is what it is. If, and this is a “weak” if, Monroe defeat the Bears, then I do believe we (SC) will be having another shot at the title. However, if it goes as predicted, Bears vs Da Creek, then we can not afford to make any mistakes. We have to come out and hit the ground running, and avoid a pointless drive. Let me revisit 2011 in the dome against Peach. Burke was down 14-0. From what I saw, Peach definitely was not outplaying Burke, Burke was not doing what they were capable of. Once they started to get that momentum up, Peach could not stop them. I know some of those players are gone, but Burke’s players all have that drive in them. Even when I saw the entire 9th grade team out there keeping up with the opponent’s first string almost the entire 2nd half (a reg. season game). Creek have that determination, true, but I believe Burke has tasted the blood (championship), and they are hungrier than they were last year.

If BC gets past Monroe then whoever wins the Creek/BC game will go on to win the state. I hope they broadcast this game. Creek has a lot of talent and BC has a lot of speed. I will say that this will probably be the best team that BC has ever played since the 1997 championship game. Thomas Co. Central finished that year undefeated and ranked #3 in the country.

November 17th, 2012
5:51 pm

Sandy Creek doesn’t have a Gator Green, but they have two sophmore running backs that are quite fast and only need a seam along with a couple D1 wideouts and a D1 QB. Whomever the Creek plays, they will have to stop a high scoring offense and be able to score on a very stingy defense which features two D1 down linemen, a safety and a cornerback. As for now, I am only concerned with Dalton, but if all goes as people believe, we will compare the match ups next Saturday. I’m more interested in talking about the Marist vs Carrollton game.

We all we Got and don't need anymore!!

Creek will take the ball and pound it down BC’s throat to control the clock and not allow BC speed to impact the game. Creek can throw and score or they can run it, control the clock and score. A LOT of talent on both sides of the ball. Creek is on a mission after losing to Gainesville last year – A MISSION!

Bigdawg, Sandy Creek was young and mostly inexperience last season when they played Gainesville. They are very hungry this year and wii dominate any team that crosses their path. It is going to take hell of a team just to slow them down. If you don’t have a complete team which consist of a running and a passing attack you’re in trouble. SC defense will shut down any shut down any offense and are some good offenses out there.

I still give my trojans a chance to win state if creek gets upset. After what i seen friday night the defense is playing much better remember we lost everything from last year’s team so this wasn’t our year in the first place, but for this team to improve this much since the beginning of the season is absolutely amazing to me. I think alot of people are not giving carrollton a chance because of what they seen on tv but tust me carrollton had a bad game against the best team. This young team is just now hitting on all cylinders so outside of creek we can matchup to anybody, so i like our chances of oilsmaking it to the state championship game, anything can happen oplayoffs friday nights GO TROJANSn playo

I just want the fans of Sandy Creek and Burkes County be warned about the teams in Region 1, Cairo, Monroe, and Westover. I see we have some Bracket busters down here, Monroe blasted Griffin 33-17 and we also have D-1 prospects. As TornadoWarning has stated early yall have officially been warned.
