Region results reset several storylines


After scoring a historic 23-20 victory over Carver-Columbus last week, Northside-Columbus suffered a critical loss to Americus-Sumter in Week 2 of Region 1-AAAA action. While the Patriots join Hardaway and Carver-Columbus at 1-1, Americus-Sumter now sits tied with defending region champion Cairo at 2-0, which cruised past Shaw 30-7. The good news is that these two teams won't have to wait long. Cairo visits Americus-Sumter this Friday.

Elsewhere in the classification, there were surprising results, games that were closer than expected, and statement victories made this weekend.  After defeating Salem 74-6 last year, Woodward Academy scored a 21-13 win over Salem last night. In Region 5, Troup looked impressive in its 48-12 win over Chapel Hill and Cartersville not surprisingly dominated previously unbeaten Cedartown 41-7.

Ridgeland looks like the team to beat in Region 6 and routed Northwest Whitfield 48-7 Friday night. Ridgeland is now 5-0 with a 207-28 total margin of victory, allowing just 5.6 points per game.
