Heading into Friday night, there were a few teams in our area who needed a win in order to clear up their rather cloudy playoff picture. For those teams, they got it done. Clay Central, Handley, and Wadley both know where they are heading, while Randolph County still needs a little help this upcoming Friday night.
West End 25 Woodland 22
So much like Clay Central has experienced this season, Woodland fell in heartbreaking fashion involving special teams. Tied at 22 with less than a minute in regulation, the Bobcats attempted a field goal that was unsuccessful. Once West End took over, they broke open a play that gave them great field position with 3.2 seconds remaining. The Patriots ran one more play, setting up shop at the 30 yard line as time expired. However, there was a personal foul called on Woodland, setting up an un-timed down. West End kicked a field goal to end the game, which was their first win of the season. Woodland will finish the 2018 season on the road at Donoho next Friday.
Clay Central 14 Center Point 0
The Volunteers wrapped up the 2-seed in 5A Region 5 with a road win at a rainy, cold Center Point. Center Point had a methodical drive brewing in the first quarter, which was aided by several Clay Central penalties. However, the defense stood up when they needed to, and kept the Eagles out of the end zone. Clay Central will close out the regular season at Handley on Friday.
Handley 35 Talladega 21
After a very emotional week, the Tigers from Handley were happy to get back on the football field and play. Handley picked up a much needed win over Talladega, which clinched the 2nd-seed in 4A region 4. Handley hosts Clay Central this Friday night to close out the regular season. Randolph County 35 Pleasant Valley 6
Randolph County's route in the playoffs has yet to be determined, but Friday's win at Pleasant Valley helps. Eyes will be on Piedmont and their game with Geraldine. If Piedmont beats Geraldine, no matter the result of Randolph County's game with Wadley, Piedmont wins 3A Region 6. If Piedmont loses, and Randolph County wins, then the Tigers from Wedowee are crowned champions. Demarcus Davis had two rushing touchdowns and two interceptions on defense in the win for RCHS. An inter-county rivalry awaits RCHS, as the Tigers host Wadley on Friday night.
Wadley 33 Notasulga 6
Although it was expected, Wadley sealed up the 2-seed in 1A Region 4 by defeating Notasulga, 33-6 on Friday. Trevor Cameron and Dalton Brown each had two touchdowns. Wadley puts all of their focus on Randolph County, they meet in Wedowee on Friday night.
