How the Georgia Power 25 fared

A week filled with huge games did not disappoint

1. Buford beat No. 3 Mill Creek, 39-27

The game of the week didn’t disappoint. Over 11,000 fans showed up to see two of the best teams in the nation battle it out, including Georgia’s head coach Kirby Smart and Ohio State’s head coach Ryan Day. In a game in which Buford controlled for the majority, Mill Creek never gave in, and the stars came out to play. Justice Haynes finished the game with 114 yards on the ground and two huge rushing touchdowns and threw a touchdown pass. Mill Creek’s Hayden Clark and Caleb Downs combined for over 200 total yards and three touchdowns, but Buford’s defense made the necessary stops when needed.

2. Langston Hughes had a bye week

3. Mill Creek lost to No. 1 Buford, 39-27

This game was the epitome of a playoff atmosphere and potentially a 7A State Championship rematch. In the end Mill Creek came up short against a great team and there aren’t any other teams quite like Buford left on Mill Creek’s schedule.

4. Colquitt County beat Camden County, 49-21

Colquitt County jumped out to a 35-7 lead at the half and didn’t look back. The Packers dominated their first region match-up against a Camden County squad that had won five straight games.

5. North Cobb beat Wheeler, 45-14

North Cobb was able to handle Josiah Allen and Wheeler’s high-powered run game. This was the Warriors third straight win and they now sit at 2-0 in their region.

6. Grayson beat South Gwinnett, 34-14

Grayson moved to 6-1 and 2-0 in their region after taking down South Gwinnett.

7. Kennesaw Mountain lost to No. 15 Walton, 42-14

The Mustangs lost for the first time this season in a game in which they didn’t have much going. Offensively, quarterback Cayman Prangley who has been lights out all season, threw multiple interceptions. Kennesaw Mountain’s defense couldn’t contain Jeremy Hecklinksi and Makari Bodiford who combined for five touchdowns.

8. Carrollton beat Pebblebrook, 42-12

The Trojans historic season continued and now they sit at 8-0. Julian Lewis threw for four touchdowns as the offense scored 40 plus points for the fifth time this season and the defense held an opponent to under 14 points for the fifth time also.

9. Valdosta beat Richmond Hill, 20-0

Speaking of historic seasons, Valdosta is much deserved for a mention. The Wildcats extended their win streak to eight games and their fourth shutout. With an argument for the best defense in the entire state, Valdosta’s opponents are averaging a mere four points per game against.

10. Woodward Academy beat Rockdale County, 56-7

Woodward Academy won its fifth straight game and fourth straight region game. In their five-game win streak the War Eagles are averaging over 40 points per game and holding opponents to an average of seven points per game.

12. Cedar Grove beat Douglas, 42-0
