Calhoun 14, Cedar Grove 6

12:33 am Dec. 2, 2017

Calhoun’s (13-1) defense has marched to a steady beat all year, yielding 9.3 points per game in the regular season and 9.0 in the playoffs.

This hard-hitting processional was the cause-and-effect behind a 14-6 win over the defending state champions and previously unbeaten Cedar Grove Saints (13-1) in the 3A semifinals. The group will now be heard banging heads against Peach County inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the 3A crown.

“I can’t say

Warner Robins 31, Carver-Atlanta 7

11:52 pm Dec. 1, 2017

Warner Robins – Not even three minutes had elapsed, and three big plays led to a pair of touchdowns, and it looked like offenses were in for a fun night.

For the past two weeks, Peach County coach Chad Campbell has been preaching that the Trojans weren’t just a one-man show all season. Yes, highly-touted wide receiver Kearis Jackson was on the sidelines for the second consecutive week after dislocating his wrist in a second-round win over Pierce County, but the Trojans were more than prepared to make a state title run in his stead.

Campbell was right.

11:53 pm Nov. 24, 2017

Fort Valley – Peach County has been without its top running back for several weeks, and lost its playmaking wideout and returner last week.

Warner Robins 26, Eagle’s Landing 23 (OT)

11:49 pm Nov. 17, 2017

Warner Robins – One hallmark of Warner Robins all season was to avoid mistakes, and then avoid compounding things when the Demons did make a mistake.
They survived some of both against a scrappy Eagle’s Landing team.
Jarius Burnette, who played sparingly down the stretch with a thigh injury, powered in from a yard out on fourth down to give Warner Robins a 26-23 win in overtime over Eagle’s Landing in a
