Week Four Tidbits & Records


The region races are heating up after a couple of week of play. Here are a few tidbits from this week's action.

   *  The AFHSHS.org Power Ratings Top Ten and the scoring averages for every team will be available Sunday.

   *  Over one half of the scheduled games were moved to Thursday night as teams tried to avoid impending bad weather. If you missed any of the action we will give you a weekly rundown of everything.

   *  A couple of happenings during the week included Pinson Valley self reporting a violation and forfeiting their win over Florence in week one. Blount head football coach was placed on administrative leave until further notice.

   *  Want some close games? Decatur defeated Cullman 39-36 in 3 overtimes. Helena came from 19 points down in the third quarter to beat Chilton County 35-28 in overtime. Pelham overcame a 20 point deficit in the fourth quarter to outscore Briarwood 35-34 in a wild game.

   *  #6 Ramsay (2-1) knocked off #2 Pleasant Grove 21-14 in a shocker on Thursday night.

   *  For the second week in a row a team has knocked off a ranked opponent for the very first time. Last week Orange Beach accomplished the feat and this week Coosa Christian did the same thing. The Conquerors (2-2) came from 14 points down to defeat Decatur Heritage Christian 35-21 in a shocker. Coosa Christian had been 0-20 against ranked opponents before Thursday night.

   *  Fort Payne was shutout by Gadsden City 18-0. That is the first time the Wildcats have failed to score in a game since 2014. That's a total of 88 games.

   *  Clay-Chalkville has scored at least 40 points in 17 of their last 18 games. The last two times they failed to put up at least forty points came against Mountain Brook. No surprise there.

   *   Opelika upset #1 Central Phenix City 17-14 in overtime. It is the first loss for Central, when they were in the top ten, against an unranked team since the 2012 football season.

   *  Southeastern is 3-0 on the season. It is their best start ever. Arab is 4-0 for the first time since 1990.

Hatch at 68 losses in a row. The Eagles have allowed at least 38 points in 39 consecutive games dating back to the 2018 football season. By the way Hartselle was a 55 point favorite in the game, so they covered the spread.

American Christian with a string of 30 straight region victories will take over the lead. The Patriots defeated Bibb County in  a region game Thursday night. Mars Hill (28) is next up.

Over the course of his 23 year career all but two of his teams have qualified for the playoffs.
