Week 6


The regular season is more than halfway over. Teams are prepping for the playoffs! Here are a few tidbits from this week's action.

   *  Piedmont assumed the AHSAA lead for consecutive wins last week and defeated the previous leader, Leeds, this week 29-14 to extend their winning streak to 16 straight. Bessemer Academy leads all AISA schools with a streak of 19 consecutive wins following a 34-0 win over Deerfield-Windsor GA.

  *  Check out the best region in any classification! Region five in class 3A has compiled a record of 26-11. Take away their region games and they are an amazing 17-2 against outside competition. The two losses came this week as Glencoe and Pleasant Valley lost.

  *  What's up in Isabella? The Mustangs lost their last eight games last year on the way to a 1-9 season. They turned it all around this year with a 5-0 record and are second in the state is scoring offense averaging 54.6 points a game. The school has won ten games in a season (2002) only once in their history.

Grissom did not play on Friday but take on a hot James Clemens team this week.
