As sub-region play started for region 5-A AAAA, the county teams wanted to win and set the pace to make a run for a state playoff bid. The mission was accomplished for several teams.

Sandy Creek, paced by five touchdowns from Rajion Neal, defeated Whitewater 43-6. The other Patriots touchdown came on a 27 yard touchdown pass between quarterback Ronnie Bell and receiver Jarrett Davis. Whitewater’s Josh Clemons broke the shutout with an eight yard touchdown run.

The game between longtime rivals Fayette County and McIntosh was one for the ages. The Chiefs struck first with a touchdown from Brandon Hannon. Fayette County’s Jensen Floyd answered with a touchdown of his own and after a McIntosh field goal, the Tigers pulled ahead with a touchdown from Kendall Palmore. Armani Cato scored another touchdown for Fayette, his first of two on the night, while the Chiefs got touchdowns from Alex Ishmael and Darius Miliam. McIntosh also had two interceptions from Nick Morrow. Cam Porter gave McIntosh a 31-19 lead but Fayette cut the lead to four with a Cato touchdown and a two point conversion. With time expiring, the Tigers won the game on a 58 yard touchdown pass to Eric Lauderdale.

In other games, Starr’s Mill overcame a 7-0 deficit at the half to defeat Northgate 16-7. Landmark Christian defeated Whitefield Academy 38-17. The score for the Our Lady of Mercy/Fellowship Christian game has yet to be reported.

Yes SCHS was well prepared for the game you can tell by the score. But it was shameful what SCHS football players, cheerleaders and fans did after game. You should all be punished under the rules handed down by the board of education for un-sportsman-like conduct. Yes you should have be able to enjoy your victorious win but instead you acted in a shameful and degrading way. Your Coach's and Principle,s and PARENTS should have taught you better. You showed no class and that's a shame because you have a really could team and you destroyed it by your actions on the field after the game. I hope you continue to have a good season and some one steps up and teaches you GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP.

with that whine?

MamaJ I think you need to do a little checking of history to see who the real "Bad Sports" of this county are. Hurts to get your butts handed to you by lowly Sandy Creek doesn't it.

our boys lost that game, it has nothing to do with the loss it has to do with respect and sportsmanship. You can all say what you want but Whitewater has never done anything that bad to another team before or after a game. Its a shame you are all adults and do not see the bigger picture. Teach your kids respect and dignity.Its like the old saying BOYS will Be BOYS that does not give them an excuse to behave with no respect for others. Let the kids learn from this do not make excuses for them. and by the way do not call Sandy Creek a Lowly team, they are the best in the county and have been to play offs I do not know how many times in their history. At least give them the respect they have earned

but the attitude of those down ya'lls way certainly would suggest otherwise.

So sportsmanship is "Running the Mill" or being "The Only Real Cat in Town" Hmmmm...interesting how short one's memory can be.
