Week 5


Region play is underway and teams are working toward a playoff slot! Here are a few tidbits from this week's action.

   *  The Leeds Greenwave saw their AHSAA leading 16 game winning streak come to an end to Handley by a score of 14-7. Piedmont assumes the lead with a string of 15 consecutive victories. Bessemer Academy leads all AISA schools with a streak of 18 consecutive wins following a 49-6 win over Springwood.

  *  Grissom has lost their last three games by scores of 67-14 to Huntsville, 62-13 to Hewitt-Trussville and 60-19 to Gadsden City. Only two teams have allowed more than 60 points in four consecutive games. Central Hayneville did it in 2009 and Woodville accomplished the dubious feat the same year.

  *  Along those lines, J.F. Shields is still struggling to field a football team. They have allowed more than 50 points in eight consecutive games. The record belongs to R.C. Hatch set during the 1999 and 2000 seasons.

  *   Scottsboro defeated #9 Guntersville 23-7 on Friday. It marked their first victory over a ranked team since a 20-14 win over #1 Guntersville to start the 2007 season. Ohatchee also pulled off the upset as they defeated their first ranked team since 2007 with a 41-21 win over #10 Weaver.

   *   Dothan was shutout by St. Paul's 42-0 marking the first time they have not scored in a game since the 2008 season some 87 games ago.

   *   Russell County leads the state with a string of twenty-seven straight losses following a 65-6 loss to Park Crossing on Thursday.

   *   Bullock County has lost 48 consecutive region games after falling to Dale County by a score of 28-12.

   *   G. W. Long took the week off so their 28 game regular season winning streak will continue.

   *   Tanner has a streak of 49 consecutive region wins. The Rattlers were also off this week and will resume region play next week.

   *   Guntersville lost to Scottsboro on their home turf snapping a string of 21 consecutive home wins. The new leader is St. Paul's with a streak of 20 straight wins on the home field.

   *   Red Bay, with a string of 16 consecutive road victories, leads all other football teams as road warriors and also took the week off.

   *   Fyffe, who beat Ider 53-0, extended their streak of consecutive games scoring. They are currently sitting on a string of 215 games without being shutout.

   *   Hoover has been ranked by the ASWA for an amazing 179 consecutive polls dating back to the 2000 season. The Bucs seem to be in playoff mode following a 62-7 thumping of Tuscaloosa County.
