Predictions: Go with Creekside in the Battle of Fairburn 

By Chip Saye

Many of the high-profile games in Week 2 of the season involve Georgia teams facing out-of-state competition, but those aren’t the only good matchups on the schedule. One of the best games will match Creekside’s high-octane offense against the rugged Hughes defense. Look for defending AAAAA champ Creekside to win a close one against its Fairburn neighbor for the second year in a row. Expect Valdosta to beat Thomas County Central to improve to 2-0, and go with Washington-Wilkes to beat Lincoln County for the third consecutive year.
