Week Two Tidbits & Records

The 2022 season rolled through week two. Here are a few tidbits from this week's action.

   *  It was a week of upsets in the ASWA top ten. Region play starts this week so get ready for the fun to become real. If you missed any of the action we will give you a weekly rundown of everything.

   *  Top ranked Piedmont fell to Cherokee County 21-14 Friday night. As a matter of fact the top five teams in 3A all lost. Looking at last week's top ten in 3A only one team, Winfield, is without a loss after two weeks of play. There will be a big shakeup in this week's rankings especially in 3A where a total of seven teams lost.

   *  It was not a good week to be ranked No. 2 as four of the teams lost while holding down the second position. Clarke County, Gordo, Vigor and Glenwood School all fell.

   *  Twenty-seven ranked teams lost this week. That is the second most all-time only surpassed by the opening week of the 1992 season when 28 ranked teams lost.

   *  There were a few games won in dramatic fashion Friday night. Briarwood scored on the final play of the game to defeat Spain Park 23-21. Fairhope, for the second week in a row, pulled out a game in the final minutes by scoring 14 unanswered points to defeat Gulf Breeze FL 38-31.

   *  Here is one for you. The teams in 7A region one have a combined 4-8 record. Of the four wins none have come against another 7A school. All were against lower classifications or out-of-state teams.

   *  The schools in 6A region five are 11-3 thus far in 2022. In 5A region 2 the teams are 7-1.

   *  Lanett and Sweet Water were both shutout this week. It was back in 2015 that either school did not score in a game.

   *  Clay-Chalkville has scored at least 40 points in 16 of their last 17 games. The last two times they failed to put up at least forty points came against Mountain Brook. No surprise there.

   *  Did you notice? In the highest scoring game of the week Priceville outscored Fairview 54-47.

   *  Alabama teams are a combined 14-15 vs. out-of-state competition. They were 4-11 against Georgia, 7-2 vs. Florida, 2-0 vs. Tennessee and 1-2 against Mississippi.

   *  Hoover has been ranked by the ASWA for an amazing 250 consecutive polls dating back to the 2000 season. The Bucs defeated Bartlett TN 56-7.
