Tift County’s lone score came on a blocked punt returned for a touchdown in the first quarter. Lowndes caused five Tift County turnovers.

Newnan 28, Douglas County 7: Newnan caused five turnovers (three interceptions and two fumble recoveries) in its win over the Tigers. Newnan led 7-0 at the break but poured it on in the second half as the turnovers mounted for Douglas County. Tonarius Portress’ 67-yard touchdown dash in the third quarter opened the scoring for Newnan.

North Cobb 28, Pebblebrook 3: The visiting Warriors controlled the game behind the steady play of quarterback Tyler Queen. Queen threw three touchdown passes to give North Cobb a commanding fourth-quarter lead. Torrance McGee and J’Vonte Herrod each caught a touchdown pass.

North Forsyth 28, Centennial 24: Zac Slaton scored on a 4-yard touchdown run with one minute remaining in the game to help North Forsyth get past Centennial. The visiting Knights had taken the lead less than a minute earlier only to see North Forsyth’s Jake Hubbard catch a 70-yard screen pass from Dakota Gottberg to set up the winning score. Centennial tried to answer, but Logan Cross of the Raiders made a game-saving interception on the 1-yard line with five seconds left. Gottberg also threw a touchdown pass to Luke Slaton for North Forsyth.

Parkview 21, Central Gwinnett 13: According to a story by the Gwinnett Daily Post, Parkview head coach Cecil Flowe announced his retirement after his team’s win, effective at the end of the season.

Westlake 13, Tri-Cities 7: The Lions posted rushing touchdowns by Demetrius Beverly (27 yards) and Jorden Thomas (four yards) to edge their Fulton County neighbors. Westlake led 7-0 at the half and 13-0 heading into the fourth quarter. Tri-Cities made it interesting late, but Westlake’s defense prevented the Bulldogs from any late heroics.

Yes North Gwinnett lost and may have lost more than the game as they lost QB Hayden Sphire to a knee injury.

That Antonio Wimbush is something special for Camden County, saved the day with his GW TD run in the 4th

Colquitt vs Valdosta. One of the longest and greatest rivals! Valdosta came prepared and ready to play. Yes it is true anyone who saw the game will see that the Packers did not play their best ball. Made mistakes and left points on the field. Heck the one TD that Valdosta got the Pack gave them 45 yards with 3 big Penalties. 2 personal fouls and pass interference for a ball thrown beyond reach of anyone. But Valdosta played great and will be a contender in the playoffs for sure. It is always a joy to play Valdosta. Packer Nation has much respect for the Wildcats.

@Dosta Dawg= Safe travels to u and yours and I have to admit that the young Cats defense along with the scheme of your defensive Co had Propst and the crew off balanced. Somebody will be in a war come the first round of the playoffs. The Pack, Valdosta Cats, and Vikings defenses will keep us all in any ballgame and that always gives our teams a fighting chance come playoff time. Good game again and u guys future looks very bright.

Nobody in region 1 is playing better defense than the vikings right now…NOBODY. Over the last 3 games…lowndes has gave up 10 points on defense. The opponents were valdosta..coffee and tift. This defense has found its edge and is playing like i knew they could all along. Next week is goin to be tough trying to beat camden in camden. We will most likely be playing against the zebras also

So Bk, are you hoping for a rematch in Moultrie or perhaps even the Dome with the Packers? The way your team was humbled by us, I assure you, was not luck. You be glad Valdosta didn’t play y’all the way they played us. If so, y’all would have two losses in the region.

I gotta say Valdosta played their hearts out. The Packers tried every way to give the game to the Wildcats but in the end the best team won. Our QB and WR’s just didn’t look sharp tonight but it’s refreshing to know the defense can get the job done. I think 1–AAAAAA is gonna do really well in the playoffs this year, by the way.

A Tale Of Two Defenses

Valdosta and Colquitt slugged it out last night the way you would expect when watching a heavyweight fight. Neither team giving up much in the 1st half. Colquitt had its usual slow start and Red Zone problems…but…a lot of their issues could be directly attributed to the Cat defense. Hawg Air was disrupted just enough to cause the Packer offense to sputter. But the Blackhat defense returned the favor to the Cats. Valdosta led 10-3 at the half…mostly due to (3) consecutive 15 yard penalties to aid in Valdosta’s TD drive. Alas, it did not look all that good for the REAL Black & Gold at that point.

But the Hawgs have proven to be a 2nd half team all year and last night was no different. The Hawg defense shut out the Cats after intermission and was able to put up 14 points of their own. They basically did it on the ground with Mr. Sihem King. Remarkably, Colquitt missed a 36 yard FG, fumbled (2) punt returns (both lost) AND had an extra point blocked. Very unusual for the Packer special teams to play that shoddy. They kinda redeemed themselves by blocking a Valdosta FG and recovering a crucial Cat fumble on a punt return late in the game. That fumble recovery led to the winning TD and 2 point conversion.

It was a great game and it could just as easily gone the other way…BUT…the Blackhat defense just wouldn’t give in. The Packers did what they had to do…and came away with a HARD fought victory. We’ll see everybody in Jardine next Friday night. I never liked them Trojans. NEVER !!!!!

It should be corrected that Tift’s score was the result of Lowndes punter simply fumbling the ball, then trying to run it and then fumbling it into the end zone for Tift to cover. As BK said. Lowndes defense has now given up a total of 10 points to 3 pretty good football teams in the last 3 games. @Joseph we would welcome another shot at the Hawgs. Next time is our time no matter what year it is.

Colquit Fan our defense is better than the Packs. What is not better than the Packs is our offense. You had to defend our offense which made your defense look over rated. We had to defend your offense. Any way, fear the axe it is getting sharpened and tuned.

Since our running back left the team I must say also that I am impressed with the new sophomore we have back there now. Sophomore running back and a sophomore qback who is getting better and better and the coaches are starting to let him throw more. Kid can sling it. Sophomore running back can fly. Lowndes is better football team with the changes.

Last night’s Football Game between the Valdosta Wildcat’s and the Colquitt Co. Packer’s was just a typical Region -1AAAAAA hard nosed, defensive, hard hitting Football Game. And the game was very close. The way a Rivalry Game should be played. I mean, just look at the WINNERSVILLE CLASSIC. Another Rivalry Game in which Lowndes shuts out Valdosta. Something Colquitt Co. couldn’t do. Even with their stingy ass DEFENSE!! But that’s a whole different ball game with so many different matchups. So, I should not bring that up.

Maybe Valdosta didn’t give that game away. Colquitt fumbled a couple of times too. The only difference was that Valdosta fumbled at the wrong time in a critical situation. I’m still sitting here wondering what would of happen if Alsex Cason hadn’t muffed that punt. With 5 minutes left remaining in the game, Valdosta was on the verge of an upset. It was there. All they had to do was keep that clock running and the #1 and #2 teams would of went down Friday Night. But Colquitt Co. capitalized on Valdosta’s mistake and scored the game winning touchdown to clinch the victory. Both Lowndes and Valdosta has a defense. Their only blemish is they lack an offense, which will show it’s ugly face in the playoffs. But the DEFENSE should keep them in most games.

Up next: Camden Co. in Kingsland, GA. Get ready, because we coming!! And we showing up to walk out of there with a win!! Wing-T vs Wing-T, speed on speed!! Should be a wild one for sure…

Region 1-AAAAAA, The Most Competitive and Toughest Region In The State…

I just can’t put my hand on it, but Valdosta just can’t get over the hump. The defense has held every team in our 3 loses to their lowest out-put of the season. This is a defense that has only 3 seniors!!!! The offense has 5 seniors that have played a lot a need to show more leadership!!!! I have heard some disturbing rumors that our play caller is not listening to his asst. coaches. If that is the case, his stubbornness will be our down fall!!! You hire asst. coaches to assist you in coaching. If you are not going to listen to them, coach the team all by yourself!!! SMH

After having played LOWNDES, COLQUITT and CAMDEN. I would have to say in my opinion Camden will beat Lowndes and lose to Colquitt in a close game. Colquitt has a good defense, but Camden has a good OL. and alot of speed in the backfield. However, Camden’s lack of a passing game will dome them against Colquitt. Lowndes doesn’t have enough offense to beat Camden.

If Lowndes beats Camden and Camden beats Colquitt, a 3 way tie will exist. Points allowed to all region PLAYOFF teams will eliminate one, then head to head will determine our region champion. Could get VERY interesting. Lowndes gave up 0 points to Valdosta,37 to Colquitt (ouch), and will play Camden next Friday. Camden gave up 10 to Valdosta and must still play Lowndes and Colquitt. Colquitt gave up 7 to Lowndes and 10 to Valdosta, and will play Camden on Nov 9.

I’m predicting Colquitt will win 1st place, followed by Camden, Lowndes, and Valdosta, but crossing fingers and hoping Lowndes can finish high enough to host a playoff game or two!

@ Wildhawg2012 == Thanks and congrats on your win. Do you want to know what I think? I think region 1 is in for a first round shock. At least some of you. Region 3 is playing ball. With what I hear from you guy’s, there are problems in each region 1 program that will cause you to lose outside your region.

Each team from region 1 will need all phases of the game to defeat region 3 teams. I am not saying you can’t do it, just that you will need to cross all your T’s and dot all your I’s. I know it is tough within you region but what awaits you is quality football. You know what has happened before.

Make no mistake, these teams don’t care if you call yourself tough. They think they are too.
