After a handful of games on Friday, we learned a couple of things: ELCA is still pretty good, and several teams in Class A are chomping at the bit to knock them and Emanuel County Institute off of their thrones.
Washington County 6, No. 1 ELCA 0 (Postponed before half time). The Chargers were giving the Golden Hawks, ranked No. 5 in Class AAA, all they wanted for most of the first half before the game was called. ELCA had a scoring chance after a long drive but missed a short field goal.
No. 10 Athens Academy 41, Glascock County 8. The Spartans led 34-0 at the half and never looked back. Athens Academy has outscored Glascock 81-14 in the past two season openers.
No. 2 Brooks County (AA) 26, Clinch County 14. It looks like Clinch might be Clinch again this season as this one was much more respectable than last season, when Brooks throttled the Panthers 43-3. Brooks is the No. 2 ranked team in Class AA.
Landmark Christian 30, Calvary Day 22.
