The Screven County Gamecocks (9-1, 7-0 Region 4-AA) defeated Jefferson County (9-1, 6-1 Region 4-AA) 49-35 Friday night to win the region outright and setup a home playoff scenario.
Screven County never really slowed down this season. After a one-touchdown loss to Bluffton at Paulson Stadium to start out the season, the Gamecocks outscored their opponents 230-115.
Friday night was no different. Jefferson County entered the game at 9-0, promising to be Screven's biggest challenger, but the game wasn't as close as the score may indicate.
The Gamecocks led the entire game — going up 7-0 at the end of the first quarter, 28-7 at the half and 49-13 at the end of the third quarter.
Quarterback Armani Bunbury didn't complete a pass in the game, but that wasn't a problem for the primarily rushing team. The Gamecocks rushed 43 times for a total of 307 yards — 103 of which came from Kim Hunter, who touched the ball 12 times.
The Toombs County Bulldogs, who lost to Swainsboro Friday night by a score of 26-21, will visit Screven in Sylvania for the first round of the Class AA playoffs next Friday night.
