Atlanta’s Georgia Dome comes crumbling down 

ELCA, Manchester at top of new power ratings; Wild times in Region 6

Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy (8-0) remained atop the private Georgia High School Association/MaxPreps Power Ratings, while Manchester (8-0) climbed back into the No. 1 spot on the public side, switching places with Irwin County (7-1). Athens Academy (8-0) made the biggest move, jumping three spots to No. 3 on the private side. Mt. Zion-Carroll (7-1) took two steps back to No. 4 on the public side, after being upset last week by Trion (6-2).

Region 6
Meanwhile, the power ratings will play a huge role in what is happening this weekend in sub-divided Region 6. With the sub-region crossover games scheduled for Nov. 3, Division A will most likely have a three-way tie for first place after Friday, with Mt. Zion-Carroll, Trion and Darlington all having 5-1 league records. The three teams have taken turns defeating each other. Darlington is off Friday, while Mt. Zion and Trion will face the bottom two teams in the subregion – Christian Heritage (1-7) and Gordon Lee (2-6), respectively. If the three-way tie occurs, the subregion champion and the seedings for next week’s crossover games will be decided by the power ratings. Right now, Mt. Zion is No. 4 on the public side with a 13.40 power rating, Trion is next at No. 6 on the public side with a 13.02, and Darlington would be third – and be on the road for the crossover game – at No. 11 on the private side with a 12.01. Fourth place in the subregion is on the line Friday as well, as North Cobb Christian (3-5, 2-3) visits Bowdon (2-6, 1-4). Both teams sit at No. 27 in the private and public power ratings, and need a win Friday

In Division B, rivals Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Paran – both 7-1, 6-0 in the region – will meet at Mt. Paran to decide the subregion title. Mt. Paran is No. 5 in the private power ratings with a 13.36, Mt. Pisgah is No. 7 with a 12.99. Walker (4-4, 4-2), No. 20 in the power ratings, and Whitefield Academy (5-3, 4-2), No. 19, will battle for third place in the subregion. The winner will most likely assure itself of a playoff spot, while the loser could be on the bubble by possibly ending the season with two losses.
