Irwin County Indians (3-2) at Clinch County Panthers (3-2)
Clinch County, winners of two straight, looks to remain near the top of Region 2-A with a win Friday night over the Irwin County Indians. Last year, the Indians upset the Panthers, 32-31. This year, both teams enter with identical records: three wins, two losses. Both could use a victory Friday night. Clinch County was idle last Friday night, while Irwin County won its second straight game with a 55-21 win over Telfair County. The Indians’ two losses this season came against Fitzgerald (31-0) at East Laurens (21-13), both Class AA schools. For Clinch County, the season opening loss to Brooks County seems to be far in the pass as the Panthers have won three of their last four, including a 17-9 win over Telfair County two weeks ago.
