GHSA State Playoff matchups set for Locals

Skinny Ads - ACE1

Congrats to our local eight teams who advanced to the state playoffs, which begin Friday night! Here are the matchups:


#3 Habersham Central @ #2 Douglas County

The Raiders (6-4) are set for their first playoff game since 2011, and hope to win their first since Tavarres King’s time at Habersham in 2007. Douglas County is 8-2 overall.


#4 White County @ #1 Pickens

A rematch in the playoffs! White County (3-7) take on #7-ranked Pickens (10-0). These teams met back on September 7, where Pickens narrowly escaped with a 42-35 win…and in fact, that’s the most points Pickens allowed to anyone this season. Could be an upset…


#2 Dawson County vs #3 Haralson County

The #7-ranked Tigers look to make a fourth straight splash in the playoffs in the Sid Maxwell era. Dawson (9-1) takes on Haralson County (8-2).

#2 Jefferson vs #3 Westminster

The #8-ranked Dragons (8-2) take on Westminster (6-4) as Jefferson looks to continue an impressive streak of winning the first round at least in every year since 2012. Overall, Jefferson has been in the playoffs each year since 2011.

#1 Rabun County vs #4 Spencer

The #2-ranked Wildcats (9-1) are five-time region champs in a row, and take on a 3-7 Spencer team. Long bus ride for the Green Waves, and a quick game shall be had. Shaw’s Soldiers have a remarkable 9-6 mark in the playoffs since he arrived at Rabun in 2012.

#2 Union County vs #3 Bremen

Union will regroup for a tough home match against Bremen (how did Bremen become a #3-seed???). #3-ranked Bremen (8-2) plays in the same region as Hard County and Callaway, and is the only team that took down Rabun in the first game of the season on a neutral field so you can throw that out. Union needs this win and deserves it, as the Panthers have suffered some bad breaks in the playoffs (0-4 since 2013).


#5 Commerce vs TBA

GHSA’s Power Ratings will come into play here. We won’t know who Commerce plays until a bit later, and if they get the first round bye or not.



#1 Buford vs #4 Miller Grove

#3 Flowery Branch @ #2 Ridgeland

#3 North Hall @ #2 Lakeview, FO

#4 Gainesville @ #1 Creekside
