Worth noting: Dooly County has won four of five games after an 0-4 start to the season that included a change in head coaches. The Bobcats beat 22-point favorite Brookstone 14-13 Friday in a 4-A crossover game, their seventh straight win in the series. ... Hampton beat Druid Hills 41-0 to clinch the first playoff berth in the program's six-year history. The Hornets are 5-4 this season after going 6-43 in their first five years and can clinch the No. 2 seed in 4-AAAA by beating Eastside this week. ... Sprayberry pulled off an upset for the second time in three weeks, beating seven-point favorite Creekview 27-21. A victory against River Ridge this week likely sends the Yellow Jackets to the playoffs for the first time since 2011. ... Starr's Mill, which was 2-3 overall at the midway point of the season, is one victory away from its fourth straight 3-AAAAA title after beating eight-point favorite Riverdale 42-41, which suffered its first region loss. Starr's Mill plays Griffin this week. ... Warren County beat 15-point favorite Aquinas 28-24 to end a seven-game losing streak in the series. The loss would have cost Aquinas the subregion title, but a loss to Hancock Central earlier this season was recently overturned by forfeit, allowing the Fighting Irish to advance to the 7-A championship game against Mount de Sales.
