Good game Stephenson.

I do want to say something to the people that said EPs and Region5s schedule was weak. That just isn’t true!! Allatoona our #2 just took down your #1 MLK. Last week NP took out another #1 team. Tucker 40 over NP 21 (a very similar score to the NP/EP game). What I will say is “On any given day any team can win”. Was Stephenson the best team today Absolutely. Do I think EP could beat them ABSOLUTELY, but nothing I saw today makes me think Region6 is any better than Region5.

Keep it going Allatoona!!

@ FridayNightLightsFan, GET A LIFE, We have the reigning State champion that was dominating before we (Stephenson & MLK) got her along with Tucker & and strong Marist that is still dominating on the AAAA level. I have the upmost respect for NSWR, if we get to meet them instead of Tucker, I probably will be silence on the blog that week… ;)

ALLATOONA WENT RIGHT DOWN THE FIELD IN THE FIRST QUARTER TO ONLY GET FIELD GOALS, THEY COULD HAVE BEEN UP 14-0..MLK DEFENSE WAS NOT STOPPING THE RUN AT ALL. AND AS FOR THE DEFENSE LAYED SOME BIG HITS ALL NIGHT..ALLATOONA PLAYS SMASH MOUTH FOOTBALL AND THEY R PHYSICAL..MLK WAS HIT TONIGHT..NO NEED TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR YOUR NO#1 SEED IN 6A..A MUCH BETTER TEAM ONE NIGHT AND DESERVINGLY SOO….GO BUCS

Well if you’ve watch me post all year you have NEVER seen me personally boosted or say EP would win any game all year long. No one can say that for sure and any team can get beat. The very first thing I said was “Good Game Stephenson”. I have no crow to eat!!! You are talking to other EP posters. I only pointed out that our region is stronger than you think and we know it.

No excuse, because the coaches lost the game for mlk but they were missing there starting qb and rb along with a couple of other players. But they still should’ve beat allatoona. Good luck Stephenson and Tucker show em how we get down.

Tick,tick,tick,poof! That was a dud, hehehehehe! Only road EP’S takes is home. Not meant for you Fridaynight, but all your other obnoxious fans. Telling stories of how scary it is to Olay in boneyard, which turn into a grave yard, avg 41 PPG and settled for two FG. Mentioning they shouldn’t even show up. Tell your fans to ease up a bit next year, just giving EP’S a bad name after all the bragging. At least you keep an open mind. It’s like they are a bad luck charm.

The kids played there butt off!! It’s was the coaches for mlk who lose the game bonehead decision making!! Example 1 not going for 2 when up by 12. Example 2 got a penalty for 2 many players of the field giving Allatoona a second life and they did score when they was going 2 punt.. Example 3 mlk is at Allatoona 20 yard line with three timeouts and didn’t use one subsequently throwing a int to end the game. GET RID OF THE COACHES PERIOD!! They cannot coach,we winning on talent period!!

Well after all these years of disappointments for Stephenson in the playoffs, you were due for a good game. Can you actually win a state championship with your 20 something college players each year? We’ll see. As for some of the teams, hunting season seemed more important than winning and having to miss another deer hunt.

Congratulations to North Paulding on a good game. I hope your QB is OK. Looks like he was throwing the ball on the sidelines late in the game as if he might go back in, but I couldn’t see very well. North’s offensive pace really gave Tucker problems in the first half. Tucker could not get lined up quick enough to defend the spread. Looks like Tucker adjusted in the second half, the NP tempo slowed, and Tucker eventually wore NP down running the ball. Also, looked like Tucker’s speed was a factor. Again, good game NP and thanks to all your fans who made the trip over.

Give the cannon a break…..I’m not a normal east fan ( look at the username) but he always gives a good little preview to the weeks game and roots for his Raiders. I have never seen him make fun of a team or dis them afterwards. He’s been posting on here for years and always gives respect if they are beat…..every other teams fan would obviously root and brag on them as well. Only afew teams left in each classification….all should be proud they got this far…..only one can win it all.

I was impressed NP kept it a game for the most part….young program that has some defensive issues and was up and down this year. Their o-line ( other than the center) averaged about 160! They have a decent offensive scheme and would be VERY scary with a few more athletes and some defensive issues addressed.

EP – Stephenson game – Stephenson looked strong. HUGE D-line.
EP missing their 6′7 tight end due to shoulder separation from the previous game cut down their offensive options in addition to missing his blocking on the O- line. Doubt it would have made a difference in the outcome but the score may have been more respectable!

Only EP bright spot was kicker Hemphill’s 61-yard field goal.
Kudos to the Jags – good luck the rest of the way!

I’m a Stephenson fan and hope they go all the way but Stephenson needs to win a state title to really prove themselves. Far too many times Stephenson has had a roster of D1 players and no ring to show for it. Yes, coach Gartrell has sent a boat load of players to college and that’s great but to validate Stephenson as a “championship” team, they need to win the title. I would love to see Stephenson known as a “state champion” and not just a “talented roster”

First things First…CONGRATULATIONS to our EAST PAULDING RAIDERS for another great year!

REGION 5 CHAMPIONS and an UNDEFEATED regular season!

To the STEPHENSON folks…GREAT JOB and also CONGRATULATIONS on bringing it RIGHT FROM THE START! You were prepared and the biggest thing all night was the difference between your “D” line and the EAST “O” line. Your guys were on the EAST QB all night and he had NO time to set up pass plays.

With the score 7 / 6 at half time it was still any ones game but ya’ll came out in the 2nd half and OWNED EAST! You did something no many other have and that’s come INTO “THE BONEYARD” and win a playoff game! GOOD LUCK the rest of the season!

It’s been real fun bantering back and forth with you!

Till Next Year….

TICK…TICK…TICK…BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
GO RAIDERS!!!

@ Decatur joe; If they continue to play the way they did last night they will win the state handily. I’ve been telling these bloggers all year long that the JAGs play in the the most powerful regions in the state with Tucker & Marist (Tucker winning the state championship 2 out of the last 3 years). @ with Stephenson playing up in the state’s highest classification gaining all of that experience while playing over their heads. All these other regions is just hyped’ they have nothing to judge their #1 teams by when the talent level & strength of the region schedule is not that great in their region*****

Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched Jaguars. Ware and Stephenson have played in the past, and Stephenson was the big bad team in town. This year’s Ware County Gators have improved on the fine foundation poured by Coach Dan Ragle. Head Gator Ed Dudley and defensive coordinator Jimmy Francis have the Swamp Boys playing lights out. Have a safe drive to The Swamp. Plan to stay overnight. Driving home after a big loss can be dangerous.

I’m a RAIDER FAN to the end. I’m very proud of the season our EP Raiders had this year. On any given day anytime can win and Stephenson out played EP last night. What does everyone have to get so nasty and adolesent on here. Give credit where credit is due and move one. Grown men being so childish is sad an pathetic. GROW UP!!!!

Good luck to Stephenson in their next round. All teams in the playoffs are there for a reason because they are the best of the best and at some point their has to be a loser.

As for firing EP’s coach are you CRAZY??? He came after the “legend in his own mind” and took this year’s team to a 10 – season and a Region Championship. One game does not end a career so why in the world would you say something so STUPID!!!

Thanks Coach Goddard for coming in, gaining the confidence of the players, coaches and fans and taking our team to the Perfect regular season. I look forward to see how you will conintue to develop and lead EP Raiders in the years to come. You are now part of the Raider Family and as we say Once a Raider always a Raider.
