(Nov 12, 2022)

Second Round of 2022 Playoffs


The first round is history. No the real state championship race begins. Here are a few tidbits from this week's action.

   *  The AFHSHS.org Power Ratings and the scoring averages for every team will be available by Sunday. If you missed any of the football action we will give you a weekly rundown of everything. We will also have previews for every third round game Sunday. Predictions will be posted Monday.

   *   The remaining undefeated teams:
           6A - Hartselle (12-0), Theodore (12-0)
           5A - Leeds (11-0), UMS-Wright (12-0)
           4A - Anniston (11-0), Catholic Montgomery (12-0), Deshler (12-0)
           3A - None
           2A - Fyffe (12-0)
           1A - None
           AISA - Lee-Scott Academy (11-0), Patrician (12-0), Jackson Academy (12-0)

   *  For the second week in a row we had a major upset in the playoffs. Last week Parker pulled off the upset of the year by knocking off #2 Clay-Chalkville 7-6. In the second round we saw Geraldine upset #1 Mars Hill 17-14. Remember Geraldine was the team that stopped Fyffe's long winning streak last year. The Bulldogs get a rematch with Sylvania next week.

   *  Number four seeds advancing include St. Paul's who knocked off Pelham 38-7, Pike County beating Alabama Christian 41-39 and Mobile Christian dropping Trinity 27-13. As a matter of fact, Mobile Christian travels to Pike County for a third round matchup of number four seeds.

   *  Tuscaloosa Academy used a 51 yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining to defeat Lexington in a wild game. Thomasville held on the defeat Dadeville 15-14 on overtime. Tuscaloosa Academy advances to the third round of the playoffs in their first year in the AHSAA.

   *  The AISA championship games are scheduled for this coming Thursday at the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery.
         Lee-Scott vs. Glenwood - Lee-Scott makes the trip for the first time since 2012.
         Patrician vs. Clarke Prep - Clarke Prep returns to the championship game for the first time since 2013.
         Jackson Academy vs. Lowndes - A repeat of last year's game that was won by Lowndes Academy 21-6.
         Springwood vs. Evangel Christian meet in the first ever AISA 8-Man championship game.

   *  Class 7A went exactly as predicted the first two rounds. Now the big boys meet in the semi-finals. Hoover will host Thompson while Central Phenix City will host Auburn. It will be the 6th consecutive meeting between the Bucs and the Warriors in the semi-finals. Both games are rematches of games played earlier this season.

   *  The Hoover Bucs are 19-6 and 12-3 at home in the semi-finals. Four of those losses have come against Thompson the past four seasons. Hoover advances to the semi-finals for the fifteenth year in a row and 22nd time in the last 23 seasons.

   *  Arab, Coosa Christian, Gulf Shores and Randolph won a second round playoff game for the first time in their school's history and will advance to the third round for the first time.
