SCORE ATLANTA PUBLICATION 

Check out this week's publication!


 


WHAT TO WATCH FOR
By Craig Sager II
Mill Creek hosts critical region matchup 

North Gwinnett at Mill Creek is The Atlanta Falcons High School game of the week and is a matchup between Gwinnett rivals that played one of the best games of the 2013 season last time they met. Mill Creek owned a 34-14 lead in the fourth quarter and saw the Bulldogs score 29 points in the final frame and walk out with a 50-47 victory.

Mill Creek let the game slip and it ultimately cost them a spot in the playoffs. While the Hawks seek revenge, we can expect another shootout. The state's leading passer John Urzua leads North Gwinnett. The senior has tossed 1,241 yards and has developed a deadly connection with brothers Daniel and Josh Imatorbhebhe and North Gwinnett's cast of talented wideouts.


 
In Class AAAAAA, Etowah at Woodstock is another region matchup to keep an eye on. Roswell is 4-0 and Walton, Cherokee and Milton are still in position to make a run at capturing the region title. Etowah and Woodstock are sitting pretty with 4-0 starts and 2-0 records within the region competition. Woodstock rushed for an astonishing 445 yards last week in a 51-42 win over Lassiter and Etowah has its own star-studded backfield. Raishod Devezin has accumulated 854 rushing yards for Etowah and is leading all ball carriers in Class AAAAAA this season. Devizin has eclipsed the 200-yard mark three times this season, including a career-high 274 yards against Marietta. Both teams sit on the outside of the top 10 but the winner will likely enter next week's poll.

             

It's Week 6 and almost the entire state is right in the thick of region matchups. For the teams that are still playing non-region games, this is the final week we will see it before the whole state is in region play. The most intriguing cross-classification and top 10 matchup this week is between Class AAA's Central-Carroll and Class A's Landmark Christian. Central-Carroll is off to a record 4-0 start. The Lions defeated B.E.S.T. Academy 28-6 and shutout Bowdon, Hardaway and Fayette County. That puts Central at a 1.6 point per game allowed average heading into its fifth game of the season (the top defense in the state). Landmark Christian is dominant on the offensive side of the football and has scored 44.5 points per game during an impressive 4-0 start. This game is a great measuring stick as two of the state's championship hopefuls. 


 


 

UPSET ALERT
By Stephen Black
Cobb powers Kell, Allatoona warned

rushing duos in the state this year and, despite Bettistea's absence for much of the season, the Bucs have pirated their way to an impressive 4-0 start.


 

South Paulding, under the leadership of coach Ed Koester, has turned into a formidable power in west metro Atlanta. The Spartans won an epic battle with the Bucs last season in a 48-45 overtime affair and have won three of four in series history.


 

Allatoona looks like it would be favored in this game, but South Paulding has been tough for anyone to beat since hiring Koester. 

 

Sonoraville at Class AAA No. 10 Adairsville

Adairsville comes into this game seeking its first 4-0 start since 2011. Local-rival Sonoraville, which is just a few minutes up I-75 and down Highway 53 from Adairsville, looks to knock the Tigers off and potentially take their spot in the top 10.

 

The Phoenix is a relatively new program that played its first season in 2006 while Adairsville, on the other hand, has been playing since 1956. Sonoraville has not yet had a winning season. However, first-year coach Jim Kremer has the Phoenix 3-1 and scoring about 35 points per game.

 

Adairsville has lost to Sonoraville just once in eight games. A win tonight may be the biggest in Sonoraville's history.

 


 

Class AAA No. 8 Hart County at Elbert County

A northeast Georgia tradition, this battle has been waged since 1954 with Elbert County holding a 31-27 series lead according to GHSFHA.org. This season, Hart County comes in undefeated and ranked while the Blue Devils are 3-1 with a loss to Westminster.

 

Elbert County has won three of the last four under coach Sid Fritts while the Bulldogs have won six of nine. Hart has been the more impressive team this season, but the Granite Bowl has seen the host Blue Devils pull off a myriad of upsets over the years.


 

 

Class AAAAAA No. 7 North Gwinnett at Mill Creek

A burgeoning football power in Gwinnett, Mill Creek has done everything except beat region-rival North Gwinnett. Tonight would be a perfect time to do it for the Hawks, which came into the season ranked highly after returning QB Daniel David and one of the state's top offensive lines. After a rough early schedule, Mill Creek is 2-2 heading into tonight's Region 7 affair.

 

North Gwinnett has been one of the state's top programs under coach Bob Sphire and beating Mill Creek is a habit for them. However, this may be the best Mill Creek team the Bulldogs have faced yet. The winner of this game will take a significant step towards playoff qualification.
 

 

Cambridge at Class AAAAA No. 4 Kell

Kell has run Region 7-AAAAA like Kentucky has traditionally run the SEC in basketball over the years. The Longhorns have not lost a region game since the opener of the 2011 season. Cambridge, however, could present a challenge to the Longhorns as the three-year-old program comes into the game with its best team yet.

 

The 3-0 Bears would take a huge step forward as a program with a win tonight. QB Brian Moore and WR Hunter Smith have become one of the top passing combinations in the state and that could cause problems for Kell. However, Kell QB Cameron Rosendahl, however, is pretty good in his own right.
