Valwood Valiants (6-0) at Terrell Academy Eagles (5-2)
The Valwood Valiants are 6-0 for the first time since the 1990’s and are looking to stay perfect on the season with a win over the Terrell Academy Eagles Friday night. Last week, Valwood blasted Sherwood Christian and led by 40-plus points midway through the second quarter. This week, the Eagles could be a tougher competition. The key for the Valiants will be not to look ahead to the end of the season showdown with Southwest Georgia.
Pelham Hornets (1-4) at Cook Hornets (4-1)
It is homecoming Friday night in Adel and the Hornets are looking to rebound from a loss to Fitzgerald last Friday night. The Hornets dominated the game, racking up 22 first downs compared to the Purple Hurricanes’ nine. Cook also outgained Fitzgerald by 200 yards. The difference was a goal line stand in the first half by Fitzgerald, which led Cook with no points. Pelham is 1-4 this season since making the jump from Class A to Class AA. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
Berrien Rebels (2-3) at Thomasville Bulldogs (1-5)
The Berrien Rebels had a fast start in last Friday’s game against Early County. Unfortunately for the Rebels, the Bobcats got hot in the second half and earned a blowout victory. This week, the Rebels look to remain in the playoff hunt with a big victory over the struggling Thomasville Bulldogs, who are coasting to the end of the season. Berrien is 0-17-1 all-time against Thomasville, but with the Bulldogs struggling this year, the Rebels could be in line for their first ever victory over the Thomasville.
Charlton County Indians (3-3) at Lanier County Bulldogs (2-4)
A win over Charlton County could be exactly what the Bulldogs need to end their recent losing ways. Losers of three straight and four of their last five games, the Bulldogs host the Indians Friday night in a Region 2-A game. The Bulldogs are dead last in the region, while Charlton County is looking to remain in the playoff hunt with a game against Clinch County looming at the end of the month.
