The Southwest Patriots opened the game on their first possession with a 58-yard touchdown pass. A few possessions later Southwest scored on a 25 yard scoring strike. Berrien’s offense was unable to mount an attack against the Patriots’ defense, which forced five interceptions from the Berrien County quarterback in an 18-0 road win. Southwest-Macon is now 1 and 0. The Patriots’ next game is at home against Wilkinson County on September 2nd.
Peach County, the 2009 GHSA (AAA) champs, was dominant in their 20-0 shutout win over Warner Robins. The Trojans’ defense held the Demons’ offense without a first down in the second half. It had been more than a decade since Warner Robins had lost by 20 or more points and the first time the team had been shut out to start the season since the late 1960’s. Peach County is 1-0, while Warner Robins drops to an uncharacteristic 0-1.
Westside High played aggressive on defense as the Seminoles were able shut down Stone Mountain High in the second half in a 20-9 home win. The Seminoles’ running attack was led by Terrell Johnson who had 89 yards rushing and Marqueze George, who collected 61 yards on eight carries. The Seminoles record is now 1 and 0 and Stone Mountain drops to 1 and 1.
