AA blog: What we learned Friday
Here’s what we learned Friday in Class AA:
- No shockers occurred in the top 10 Friday, with the eight teams that played going 8-0. The closest game was between the No. 10 Vidalia Indians and Bacon County, though the Indians pitched a shutout, winning 14-0. No. 1 Lamar County squared off against the only other team with an undefeated 1-AA record, Bleckley County, but coasted to a 44-7 win to all but take the region for a third year in a row.
- So much for a rivalry. The No. 8 Bowdon Red Devils made easy work of Bremen at home, winning 48-22. Bremen had a 5-2 edge in the series since 2005 heading into the game and prevented Bowdon from completing an undefeated regular season in 2008. Now, the Red Devils (9-0, 7-0 5-AA) are just one win away from their first 10-0 season since 1995 and their first region title since 2005. However, the title won’t come easy – after a bye they’ll play the Heard County Braves, who moved to 6-0 in the region after their 43-0 win over Temple. The Braves play the Spencer Greenwave Owls next week, who are a win away from their first winning season since 1977.
- In 3-AA, the Dublin Fighting Irish are officially back on track. They slipped to 2-8 last year for their first losing season since 2003. But this year they’re 6-2 overall and 4-0 in the region after their 42-14 win over Harlem. They face Laney (6-2, 4-0) next week for what will essentially be the region championship. All other teams in the region have at least two losses.
