DONALSONVILLE -- Seminole County stole a victory Friday, beating Terrell County, 32-28, on senior Sammy Buczek's over-the-head catch on a pass from sophomore quarterback Antwan Buggs with nine seconds left in the game.

"The best team probably didn't win (Friday night)," Seminole County head coach Alan Ingram said. "My hat goes off to (Terrell County head coach) William Huff. ... They outplayed us and outhustled us. We didn't even play well defensively. We were able to just hit some option stuff on them that they probably hadn't seen before."

Buggs led the Indians (1-1) offensively, rushing for 108 yards and two touchdowns and passing for another.

Terrell County quarterback Jerkerious Scott, on the other hand, provided the highlight of the night with his 65-yard run for a touchdown.

"We just gotta keep practicing," Huff said. "We can't ask any more from the players than to play hard. ... I think it's just one of those things you have to deal with and the kids have to learn.

"You just get up on your feet and get ready for the next one."



Herald No. 2 Lee County took down Crawford County on Friday, 56-13, starting a win streak in Leesburg the program hasn't seen for years.

Lee (2-0) has now matched its combined wins for the last two years after an 0-10 2008 and 2-8 mark in 2009, but coach Dean Fabrizio admits there is still work to be done

"Were pleased with the win. Some guys played well but there's still things we have to work on," Fabrizio said. "Mostly the little things."

Fabrizio wasn't harping on was senior quarterback Justin Walker, who had a career night, completing 11 of 15 passes for 240 yards, and five touchdown passes

"Those stats, those yards and touchdowns, those should go to the linemen. They've worked hard all year, all week making sure their blocks are down and making sure I've got time to get the ball to my playmakers," Walker said. "It's all a team thing."

James Terrell was a key playmaker in this one, racking up 102 receiving yards, and even throwing a 60-yard touchdown pass of his own to senior Sanford Seay.



The Blazers are now 0-for-2 in the inaugural campaign after Bacon County put a TD on the board in each quarter Friday night in Baconton's second official game as a varsity program.

The bright spot was once again the play of RB James Davis, who racked up 43 yards on 23 carries. The Blazers host Randolph-Clay, which had a bye this week, on Friday. That game will be played in Pelham.



Grant Kimbrel rushed for a 73-yard score and passed for two more as the Patriots picked up their first win of the season.

Daylon Blanton also finished with 148 yards rushing and two TDs, and Zach White and Blake Lamb both caught TDs from Kimbrel. Matt Kendrick added the Patriots' final score -- a 67-yard TD run.

"I am so proud of these kids," Randolph Southern coach Ottis Griggs said. "We worked hard on a lot of stuff all week and came out and executed (Friday night). They really deserved to win that game."

Not to be forgotten was the Patriots' defense, which got 16 tackles from Blake Martin, while Paul Turner and Grant Ward both recorded two sacks each.



Bainbridge's Bearcats had trouble moving the ball and fell to Cairo, 14-0, in one of the oldest rivalries in the state as the two teams met for the 65th time.

Bainbridge (1-1) could manage just 35 yards on the ground against Cairo (2-0), which is ranked No. 3 in the Class AAA state poll.

The Bearcats (1-1) also lost all-state and Herald Dynamite Dozen kicker Keenan Adams, who had to be carted off the field after he was hammered on a punt. Adams, who had a punt blocked early in the game that set up Cairo's first TD, beat Cairo with a 52-yard field goal last year.

Bainbridge meets Westover next week.



Miller County (1-1) got its season back on track Friday, defeating Early County, 19-13, in a game where The Pirates were able to control the game offensively and defensively, despite the close score.

"The offensive line was just outstanding," Miller County head coach Frank Killingsworth said. "We were able to control the line of scrimmage and neutralize their speed."

Junior Trenentii Barber had the majority of the carries for The Pirates and ran for a 12-yard touchdown, while senior defensive end and tight end Juwan Jones added a 12-yard rushing TD and returned a punt 70 yards for a score.

"Defensively, the front four were able to control (Early County's offense)," Killingsworth said.

The game was tied 0-0 at halftime. Shaq Edwards had two interceptions and 10 tackles for Early.

Miller was ahead, 19-0, when Ladonis Bryant hit Jonathan Taylor for a passing TD and Camery Flowers added Early's other late score, but the rally fell just short.



Kevin Greene scored twice -- on runs of 7 and five yards -- but that was all the offense the Raiders could muster in the blowout loss, which comes one week after a comeback win against Brookwood.



It was long night for Pelham's Hornets, who fell to Class AA power Thomasville, 36-0 Friday night on the raod.

Pelham QB Caleb Morrell completed 4-of-9 passes for 13 yards and Pelham tailback Denzel Jackson gained 31 yards on seven carries to lead the Hornets, who were outmanned by a bigger Thomasville team that took a 20-0 halftime lead and led 36-0 after three quarters.

Pelham is now 1-1 for the season.
