SBT Team online ad FOOTBALL

With 10 of our local teams in action for Week 2 (only Jefferson had the week off), there was the opportunity for a lot of movement. Let’s see how they all line up after the first two weeks are in the books.

#1 RABUN COUNTY WILDCATS

LAST RANKING: #1
WEEK 2: W 38-17 vs North Murray
NEXT: Bye

The #2-ranked Wildcats were firing on all cylinders once again. North Murray provided little in the way of competition. Rabun got off to a slow start (by their standards), but rode to the finish line for a blowout 38-17 win.

#2 UNION COUNTY PANTHERS

LAST RANKING: #2
WEEK 2: W 49-8 @ East Hall
NEXT: vs Towns County

The Panthers had Week 1 to prep even longer for this game, and the wait was worth it. Pierson Allison was great, but it was Jonah Daniel who stole the show with four touchdowns in the opener. Union County found itself up 28-0 at the break, and it was cruise control from there on out. The win was the 16th consecutive season-opening win, a rare feat indeed.

#3 DAWSON COUNTY TIGERS

LAST RANKING: #3
WEEK 2: W 45-42 @ Chestatee (OT)
NEXT: Bye

Dawson County survived a pesky Chestatee bunch behind a solid performance by Shawn Thomas and Zach Holtzclaw. The Tigers survived with a late score with 12 seconds left in regulation. Caleb Bonesteel walked it off with a field goal in overtime for the thrilling win.

#4 COMMERCE TIGERS

LAST RANKING: #4
WEEK 2: W 49-7 vs Athens Christian
NEXT: @ Hart County

The #3-ranked Tigers had little trouble with Athens Christian to open region play with a bang. Commerce was up 42-zip at the break, and pulled the starters and had a running clock the rest of the way.

#5 JEFFERSON DRAGONS

LAST RANKING: #5
WEEK 2: Bye
NEXT: vs West Hall

Jefferson was idle this week.

#6 WHITE COUNTY WARRIORS

LAST RANKING: #8
WEEK 2: W 49-6 vs Lumpkin County
NEXT: @ Habersham Central

The Warriors finally got to kick off their much-anticipated season, and did so in fine fashion with a rivalry win over Lumpkin, their long-time rivals. In the 50th edition of the series, it was White County with the third straight victory over the Indians. J Ben Haynes and Zion McMullen made sure there was little doubt in this one.

#7 STEPHENS COUNTY INDIANS

LAST RANKING: #6
WEEK 2: L 13-26 vs Hart County
NEXT: @ Athens Academy

Stephens County took a hard-fought win over rivals Hart County at the Reservation. The Indians

#8 HABERSHAM CENTRAL RAIDERS

LAST RANKING: #7
WEEK 2: L 20-26 vs Madison County
NEXT: vs White County

Habersham Central had a big game from Ryte Woodruff, but it wasn’t enough, as the Red Raiders came back for a late win to crush the Raiders hearts. This is all too familiar, as nearly every loss over the past two seasons has been late leads surrendered.

#9 BANKS COUNTY LEOPARDS

LAST RANKING: #10
WEEK 2: W 15-7 vs Franklin County
NEXT: Bye

Banks County rebounded from a tough opener with a hard-fought 15-7 win over pesky Franklin County. A great takeaway from the first two games is the defense…it has allowed just 14 points in the first two contests.

#10 LUMPKIN COUNTY INDIANS

LAST RANKING: #9
WEEK 2: L 6-49 @ White County
NEXT: @ Jackson County

The Indians dropped the third straight game in the series against White County. This one featured a few highlights, including Tucker Kirk and Drew Allison. Overall, a lot is to be desired from this young group, and they’ll have to piece it together quickly.

#11 TOWNS COUNTY INDIANS

LAST RANKING: #11
WEEK 2: L 12-56
NEXT: @ Union County

Towns County fell on the road to Gilmer, moving to 0-2 on the season.
