South Forsyth 35, Centennial 24: South Forsyth forced five turnovers on Centennial’s first five possessions to seize control right away and take a 28-7 advantage into halftime. Matt Cira had two interceptions for the host War Eagles while Drew Witalis added an interception and a fumble recovery.

Walton 35, Wheeler 28 (OT): Visiting Wheeler took a 28-14 lead with 3:16 to play on an Allen Artis 65-yard interception return for a touchdown. Walton quarterback Price Wilson then found Bayley Wolff for a 6-yard touchdown pass to cut the Wheeler lead to 28-21. Wheeler recovered the ensuing onside kick, but Kyle Whitaker was able to jar the ball loose and recover the late Wheeler fumble. Walton sophomore running back Karekin Brooks scored the game-tying touchdown to force overtime. In the extra session, Walton converted a fourth-and-1 before Brooks found the endzone for his third touchdown of the game. Wheeler took over with a chance to force a second overtime, but the Wildcats’ fourth-and-15 desperation pass in fell incomplete.

West Forsyth 28, North Forsyth 7: Trevor O’Brien rushed for a 1-yard touchdown to give host West Forsyth a 7-0 lead at the half. Quarterback Hampton McConnell found Nathan Schmitz for touchdowns of 40 and 47 yards in the third quarter.

Lowndes opened up a can on coffee in 2nd half after trailing 10-7 at half. Final 35-10 lowndes. Coffee has a lot of good players, just cant get it together in region for some reason. Lowndes is getting it together and although we are 6-2..this team should be 7-1. Tifton next week and then camden. Lowndes can win both games if they keep playing at the level they are playing at right now

Colquitt barely slipped by Brunswick tonight. Makes ya wonder how we ever “edged out” Lowndes. Smitty says them fellers should be 7-1. There’s NO WAY they woulda beat Newton…so he has to be talking about Colquitt. I only hope we can find a way to beat Valdosta next week. Suffice it to say…

You right bksmith…Coffee TD called back and the dam broke for Coffee after that..Vikings have a good team and very good sportmanship. Coffee has no running game period. We are very young but that excuse is getting old. Good luck Vikings one of the best team we’ve played, pulling for u to continue in play-off run.Coffee is out of play-off picture..Coach will start playing kids for next year per one coach.

that lowndes and camden game is shaping up to be a good one…lowndes has allowed 56 rushing yards combined over the last 2 games to coffee and valdosta. We are better than the showing we had against colquitt…not taking anything away from them but we just were not prepared and were not in the right defensive formations. Colquitt had a good game plan and executed it to perfection. We have rebounded nicely though…and that game is behind us. Up next is a much improved tifton team

BK= Looks like u guys are finding some offense and the game with the Vikings and Camden Cats will be good but understand it will be for second place in the region. So u guys might get to host a playoff game if u can beat Camden which wont be easy but can be done. Not trying to knock anyone left on our schedule (Valdosta, Coffee, and Camden) but they simply don’t match up. We will most likely beat Valdosta and Coffee by double digits and the only reason I don’t say that about Camden is only because it will be senior night for them and they are going to play their tales off. I still expect a Pack victory.

Here’s hoping teams from Lowndes SWEEP next weekend! VSU, Cats, Vikings, Valwood.

Coffe’s HC said last night during a per-game interview on our radio broadcast that he checked past year results at Coffee and discovered in last 30 years, the results of the final two games in regular season (60games) Coffee is -I think he said- 9 and 51. For some reason they can’t “finish” seasons per Coach Robby. Lee county has the same problem, it seems. Every year both teams start off like gang busters, get ranked, then fizzle. I hope they both fix it, and turn things around. Coffee has great fans. They deserve better.

@AVikingFan – Some of our guys get pretty excited early on…but I gotta tell ya…

I just don’t see how we’re gonna compete against Valdosta next week. I mean…they put up 31 points on the Blue Devils and we could only manage 17. And that was BARELY. This is a clear cut masterpiece…painted by the numbers…of…Oh Woe Is Us. Our only chance…at least the way that I see it…is to stop the Wildcat buses in North Morven. And I got connections.

I reckon we’ll fight the good fight if necessary…but I shore wouldn’t mind them forfeiting. It would make life easier. I suppose we’ll do what we gotta do…In Living Color….

I agree with you that the fan support was a bit disappointing last night. The majority of our students went to the Westlake homecoming game. That’s what you get when the 2 schools are so close. The most important thing is that those fans that believe and support the program were there and in full throat.

Our DE, along with the rest of our defense, maybe the best kept secret in the state. They play fast and they play hard.

Good luck to you guys for the remainder of the season.

I must say I was alittle skeptical at first about Tifton. However, after watching them play last nite, I must say they a legit. They have a good scheme on offense and they play hard. I think their defense is alittle slack against the run, but they are a solid team!!!!! Great job coach Reid

These national rankings are foolish, how can you possibly rank teams that don’t even have a chance to play each other except on occasion? And if we were ranking these teams please, please, please somebody explain to me how Carrollton, McEachern, Norcross, and Colquitt County are nationally ranked over Tucker, for that matter how are they ranked over Tucker in these southeastern rankings and state of georgia rankings as well? If you haven’t seen the Tucker Tigers perform year in, year out then you don’t know high school football…I’m just saying

@Dosta Dawg= I don’t know when the last time we beat u guys by double digits but it might happen this week. Not trying to be disrespectful to the Cats but we are on a mission and we wont be stopped by no one in the region this year. I do know your backs are against the wall but it will be senior night in Moultrie and I know the last time in 2010 u guys beat us on senior night but u guys did have Malcolm Mitchell and a good offense and we had one of the worst defenses in Colquitt history. Now your offense is not as good as 2010 and we have the best defense in the region so u do the math. I don’t think u have enough offense to score more than one TD. Maybe two at the most.

@sportsnut= You are right bro we are half way there. It would be nice to wait for Friday at home rather than our guys taking a long trip as well as the fans. I feel comfortable about our chances because playing Lovejoy and Hoover (Two complete offenses) has prepared us for our region because no team besides us in our region can run and pass equally well. Hoover and Lovejoy can both run and pass and are hard to defend. We wont see another complete team until the playoffs in the second or third round so thanks for the preparation and hopefully we helped u guys too and like u say November is around the corner

@Sportsnut – Grayson turned the ball over four times in a row, SG threw three TD passes to a Senior that is headed to Missouri, and South Gwinnett surprised everyone winning 28-21. Shiloh broke a 21 game losing streak to Parkview winning 23-21. I think Parkview is breaking in a new QB, a sophomore, they at least have 7 TD in their last two games. Doubt Shiloh will make the playoffs. Brookwood won 23-14 but it should have been closer than that. And Archer simply toyed with Berkmar.

Sportsnut

@ GwinnettDad == I think Archer is the class of Gwinnett, next to North of course. Grayson didn’t just turn the ball over. South’s defense had a lot to do with that. The three TD passes were just a reminder, for the Qb and receiver that they were team-mates. Nothing more than what they had worked on all summer and spring.

It was time for Shiloh to break the losing streak. The main reason for them winning though is that they are better than Parkview right now. This has been my whole point.

Perception is powerful. It is just like an opinion.
These teams are not what they were. Other teams are starting to try and make a name for themselves and it is, in many cases, going to come at the expense of the well known.
