Week 9


Which teams will qualify for the playoffs? We are much closer to knowing. The post season is three weeks away! Here are a few tidbits from this week's action.

   *  Piedmont extended their state leading winning streak to 19 with a 45-35 victory over Ohatchee.

  *  The best region in any classification? Region five in class 3A has compiled a record of 36-20. Take away their region games and they are an amazing 18-2 against outside competition.

  *  J.F. Shields is still struggling to put a competitive team on the football field. They have allowed more than 50 points in twelve consecutive games. That is a state record. They have allowed 569 points in nine games and close the season next week against a great Linden team. The state record for points allowed in a season belongs to Woodville when they allowed 622 in 2009.

   *   B.T. Washington with a 5-3 record is off to a good start in 2016. They are 3-3 in region play and have qualified for the playoffs for the first time in school history. The team has also not won more games than they lost in any season since the school opened in 1991.
