Lighthouse falls in Georgia

Established eight-man power Central Christian of Sharpsburg, Ga., proved to be too much for first-year Lighthouse Homeschool last Friday night. Lighthouse fought hard early and trailed just 24-6 after one quarter. However, the home team used a dominant second quarter to score 22 unanswered points and cruised to a 62-6 victory to improve to 3-0 on the season. Lighthouse put […]

Indians too much for Redskins

The 6A Pinson Valley Indians jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead and never looked back in a 42- 0 victory over visiting Oneonta last Friday night. The Redskin defense played well at times but the Oneonta offense did almost nothing against an aggressive, swarming Pinson defense. The Indians got a combined 226 yards and six touchdowns from running back […]

Big region games for Hornets, Panthers

The Panthers answered just before the […]

Southeastern rolls past Vina

Warriors take advantage of Wildcat mistakes

West Point drove for a touchdown on their opening possession and then returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown to go up 14-0 less than […]

Spring Garden runs past Appalachian

Forget this new-fangled Hurry-Up-No-Huddle stuff, the old coaches’ adage of “you’ve got to run the ball on offense and stop the run on defense” still applies. Case in point, last Friday night’s game at Appalachian where visiting Spring Garden rushed for 389 yards in a convincing 44- 20 win over the Eagles. Appalachian put together a decent night on offense […]
