Week Eleven Scores & Recaps

Week 11 is over and done! For a few of our teams, that marked the end of the regular season with the playoffs up next. For some, it sets up big finales in Week 12. Here’s what happened!

*keep checking back for additions to the recaps as that data becomes available.*

#2 Rabun County 27, Commerce 22

The Wildcats survived a pesky Commerce team led by Jaiden Daniels. After Keegan Stover shovel-passed to Jaden Gibson for a 42-yd TD on the first play from scrimmage for Rabun, everyone figured the Wildcats would blow Commerce away. But Daniels scored in the second on a 56-yd TD, and added a 6-yd TD later in the quarter. The Wildcats responded on a 2-yd TD by Lang Windham, and the game was tied at 14 going into the half. The Cats struck quickly in the third on a TD run from a yard out by Stover. Commerce intercepted Stover (his first of the year) and turned that into a rushing TD by Jacari Huff to open the fourth. The extra point was blocked to keep it at a 21-20 Rabun lead. Midway through the final quarter, Stover found Jarret Giles on a 51-yd TD to push it up to 27-20 (extra point failed). A blocked field goal with a few minutes left kept Commerce in it. The Tigers were picked off on 4th down with 1:08 remaining by Willie Goodwyn, and Rabun took a safety on 4th down to seal the win as time expired.

Dawson County 38, Lumpkin County 10

Lumpkin drew first blood on a 25-yd Will Staple field goal. Dawson in the second quarter when Davis Glass hit Hunter Casserleigh with a 57-yd TD to give the Tigers a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Just before the half, Dom LeBlanc nailed a short FG for a 10-3 advantage going into the break. Cal Faulkner came up with a pick six for the Indians to tie the game early in the third, but Dawson returned the favor late in the third when Kade Moledor did the same to reclaim the lead at 17-10. Kenny Nelson’s TD run for the Tigers just moments later busted the game open at 24-10. Elijah Smith scored on a rushing TD in the fourth to push it up to 31-10, and another pick-six put it well out of reach at 38-10. Dawson claims its second-ever region title, and first since 2015.

#3 Stephens County 28, #4 Oconee County 27

Oconee County took a lead early to go up 7-0 through one quarter. In the second, Stephens County tied it up before the Warriors regained the lead. They got a pair of field goals before the half, and the Indians kept it within 20-14. By the fourth, the Indians trailed 27-21 in a tight battle. True to the season’s form, the Indians found a way to dig deep and come up with a thrilling 1-point win to clinch a region title.

Athens Academy 38, Union County 7

The high-flying Union County offense was held to all of 7 points in a game that shaped the Region 8-AA. Trailing 17-0, Braylen Rader got the Panthers on the board with a 3-yd TD to make it a 17-7 game. Athens Academy then scored the final 21 points of the game.

#4 Jefferson 49, Heritage 6

Jefferson couldn’t be contained in a 49-6 win over Heritage to claim the Region Championship, now winning at least one title in Class 1A, 1B, 2A, 3A, 4A, and now 5A in their first season in that class. Sammy Brown got the game going with a 45-yd TD in the first, and a Isaiah Copeland 1-yd TD pass in the second made it a 14-0 lead. Shontez Porter got in on the fun with a rushing score to push it up to 21-0. A Brown rushing score padded the lead up to 28-0, and Brown then got a screen pass from Max Aldridge and went 75 yards for another score. Porter got a second TD in the third to make it a 42-6 game, and the final score came on an Aiden Mixon TD run.

#9 Washington-Wilkes 29, Towns County 6

Towns County got just 6 points in a 29-6 home loss to #9-ranked Washington-Wilkes, snapping the Indians’ 2-game win streak.

Habersham Central 28, Apalachee 14

The Raiders’ 4-game losing streak comes to a halt as Hab Central doubles up Apalachee. The Raiders led 14-7 at the break, and put up 2 more scores in the second half for the win.

#8 Fellowship Christian 42, Banks County 7

The Leopards dropped a tough one to Fellowship Christian, as Banks was held to just one TD. The Leopards have now lost 5 straight games.

Pickens 48, White County 28

White County got off to a quick start before Pickens scored points like they were going out of style. In the first, Tripp Nix threw a 16-yd TD to Kane Lowery, and a 77-yd TD run by Caysen Duvall made it 14-0 Warriors. Pickens scored twice before the break to make it a tied 14-14 game. After the Dragons opened the third with a go-ahead score, the Warriors punched back with a 3-yd TD run by Tripp Nix. Pickens rebounded with a TD, but again White County knotted it up with a 25-yd TD run by Nix. The Dragons scored the final 20 points to punctuate the win.
