MILLEN - The Portal Panthers came into Friday night's matchup with the Jenkins County Eagles with nothing to prove. A playoff spot already secured, the Panthers could do no worse than the No. 3 seed in region 3-A regardless of the outcome.
Junior quarterback Jordan Walker threw four first-half touchdown passes as Bulloch Academy jumped out to a 35-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 49-22 victory over GISA Region 2-AA rival Memorial Day School Friday night.
No doubt, 10th-ranked Furman has a lot on the line in today's matchup against Georgia Southern. And despite their highly unexpected 3-6 record, so do the Eagles.
When Furman and Georgia Southern meet there's usually something more than pride at stake.
Tonight at Fred Shaver Field in Brooklet, two football teams with two different goals will meet in their regular season finale. For the homestanding Yellow Jackets of Southeast Bulloch, tonight is senior night, and one last chance at a win. For the Gamecocks of Screven County, a win could mean a trip to the postseason and revenge for last year's loss in Sylvania to rival SEB.
Going out on a positive note will be the aim of the Bulloch Academy Gators tonight as they host Memorial Day School at Gator Alley.
Though the Portal Panthers are already assured a playoff spot. Don't expect them to take tonight off against the struggling Eagles of Jenkins County.
