When Georgia Southern's Homecoming festivities wound down late Saturday afternoon at Paulson Stadium, it was missed opportunities that troubled the Eagles more than anything else.
As the season opener inches closer, Jeff Price continually reminds himself - be patient.
Thank goodness for Jayson Foster.
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Slowly but surely, 2006 is beginning to remind Georgia Southern fans of 1996 all over again.
A few weeks ago I took a look at where our area high school teams stood and what to expect in the coming weeks. As we approach the homestretch of the regular season, let's again take a look at where your team stands, and if they'll be playing deep into November.
Appalachian St. 40,
BROOKLET - Sometimes when it rains, it pours.
Calvin Simon's goal in the 43rd minute of the first half proved to be the game winner, and the Georgia Southern soccer team held off a furious second half attack from Davidson to advance to the final four of the Southern Conference soccer tournament for the first time since 2001 with a 2-1 win Saturday at Eagle Field.
SYLVANIA - Eight first quarter offensive plays netted three scores with the defense adding another as the SCHS Gamecocks scored 27 first stanza points enroute to a 54-7 victory over still-winless Metter's Tigers. With the win in the annual Hall of Fame game, the Gamecocks finished their regular season at Kelly Memorial Stadium at 5-0.
DUBLIN - For three quarters on a muddy, rain-soaked field, Bulloch Academy battled to a draw with the number one team in the state.
CLAXTON - As the high school football season winds its way down, the Claxton Tigers are desperately searching for a path to the postseason. With the Hornets of Savannah Country Day in town on Friday night, Claxton looked to make its playoff hopes a little brighter.
Georgia Southern poured everything it had into stopping defending national champion Appalachian State last weekend in Statesboro. The underachieving Eagles hung with the nation's top-ranked team for four full quarters and one overtime session before a draining double-overtime loss.
Whether a single player in the Buford lineup ever heard of baseball Hall of Famer Wee Willie Keeler is irrelevant. The important fact is that the Lady Wolves practiced the philosophy of Keeler to a tee.
The Claxton Tigers have lost two straight, and things don't get any easier tonight when they welcome Savannah Country Day to the Pecan Grove. At 5-2, 3-0 in region play, the Hornets provide a daunting challenge for CHS.
In the off chance The Citadel's Tory Cooper hadn't caught the attention of anyone in the Southern Conference he has now.
