We’re down to four and next week, Callaway will host Brooks County and Thomasville will host Dublin as the teams fight for their place in the GHSA AA state championship game, which will take place 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13 at Georgia State Stadium.
All of Friday’s quarterfinals matchups were decided by at least two touchdowns.
As for my predictions, well they're mostly shot. I correctly picked just one semifinalist but it's the team I also picked to win it all — Callaway. The Cavaliers continue to play championship-level football, winning by three touchdowns over Douglass.
More on my predictions and what’s ahead in Tuesday’s blog.
As for the quarterfinals, here’s the rundown:
- The Douglass Astros (11-2), the No. 2 seed from Region 6, lost 41-20 on the road to the No. 3 Callaway Cavaliers (12-1), the No. 1 seed from Region 5. Kevin Eckleberry has the story for the LaGrange Daily News.
- The No. 7 Brooks County Trojans (9-4), the No. 2 seed from Region 6, won 35-6 on the road over the No. 9 Metter Tigers (11-2), the No. 1 seed from Region 2. WTOC has highlights at the 1:05 mark of the second segment.
