The win vaulted Prince Avenue (6-1, 1-0 in Region 8) into first place in the region and into the top spot in the private school rankings. Athens Academy (6-1, 0-1) fell to No. 3, behind five-time defending state champion Eagle’s Landing Christian (3-3), which had an off week due the Chargers' non-region game at Pace Academy being cancelled.
Dublin holds on to edge Wilcox County. After falling behind 6-0 early, public No. 5 Dublin built a two-touchdown lead and then hung on to knock off No. 9 Wilcox County, 35-28. After Patriot senior QB/LB Martez Thrower’s 3-yard touchdown run, one of three he had in the game, put Wilcox ahead 6-0, the Fighting Irish scored 21-unanswered points and never looked back. Freshman QB Deago Jackson had two touchdown passes and sophomore Jaquarius Evans' interception late sealed the deal. Thrower’s other scoring runs were for 11 and 14 yards.
