JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Linebacker Mike Peterson tried to stay out of public eye last week, too embarrassed to be seen around Jacksonville and too upset to defend his defense.
It may be a long time before football fans in Bulloch County see the type of classic that was played Friday night at Womack Field.
The old football coaches' cliché is that special teams are one-third of a good team's game. That axiom proved itself for Bulloch Academy in Friday night's 42-6 thumping of Robert Toombs Christian Academy.
BROOKLET – The lightening around Fred Shaver Stadium was the only thing that kept the Southeast Bulloch defense off the field as the visiting Vidalia Indians (2-0) shut down the Yellow Jacket offense and got a 26-0 win at SEB (1-2) Friday.
The Portal Panthers continued their sluggish start to the 2007 season on Friday night, falling to Screven County by a 32-0 margin. The loss was their second shutout defeat in as many weeks and dropped the Panthers to a record of 0-3 with the Region 3-A schedule looming ahead.
LYONS – Jordan Walker and Ethan Lovett scored a pair of touchdowns each to lead Bulloch Academy to a 42-6 drubbing of Robert Toombs Christian Academy here Friday.
PORTAL - The skies rained down on the Portal Panthers on Friday night, and as soon as Mother Nature was finished, Screven County took its turn. After intense thunderstorms delayed the start of the game for more than an hour, the Gamecocks raced up and down the field, racking up yards and points in a 32-0 romp over Portal.
Marcus White's 4-yard touchdown run gave Statesboro a 19-16 win in overtime, as the Blue Devils, somehow, some way knocked off Glynn Academy Friday night in a wet-n-wild affair at Womack Field.
BROOKLET - Only three plays were run before lightning delayed play for nearly two hours as Southeast Bulloch (1-2) could not put together anything on offense and the visiting Vidalia Indians (2-0) shut down the Yellow Jackets 26-0 on a rain-soaked Fred Shaver Field.
With Glynn Academy headed into Statesboro tonight, it'd be difficult to talk about the Blue Devil-Red Terror match-up without visiting last year's thriller in Brunswick.
For the third straight week, the Bulloch Academy Gators will be physical underdogs.
PORTAL - For the third week in a row, the Portal Panthers (0-2) will take on a team from a higher classification as Screven County (1-1) heads to Panther Stadium tonight for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
BROOKLET - Coming off a big 34-7 win over cross-county rival Portal, the Southeast Bulloch Yellow Jackets look to build on last week's performance as they host Vidalia tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Brooklet.
The Fleming Road side of the stadium will be open for this Friday's game with Glynn Academy as well as the other four home games this season. There will be no entry from Lester Road, either vehicular or pedestrian, due to construction. There are approximately 400 parking spaces on the Fleming Drive side of the stadium. These will be available on a first come first serve basis.
