FRIDAY'S PREP FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Westwood stays hot with 47-13 victory

WOODBURY -- No one is stopping Westwood right now.

Especially not Flint River Academy.

In a rout on Friday night, Westwood topped Flint River Academy, 47-13, to stay undefeated this season.

In what was a constant ground attack by Westwood, as running back J.T. Edore led the way with three rushing touchdowns, while Daniel Hayes added a pair of rushing touchdowns.

Scores were also compiled by quarterback Mason Worsham with one rushing touchdown and one passing.

It was the fourth time this year Westwood has topped 40 points, but it was the other side of the ball that had Wildcats coach Ross Worsham raving.

"The defense played lights out, and I was very proud of the team's effort," Worsham said. "This was by far our team's best game."

Westwood (4-0) begins region play at home against Fullington next week.

WORTH COUNTY 22, TIFT COUNTY 14: Worth County cornerback Lavontae Robinson wasn't in Tift County's huddle Friday night -- but he may as well have been.

Robinson, a junior, had three interceptions to lead Worth County to a 22-14 win against Tift County.

"We played well defensively and tackled well. And Lavontae played lights out, out there," Worth County coach Scotty Ward said.

Robinson's third interception was with 12 seconds left in the game, sealing Worth County's win.

Tevin Hicks recovered a fumble in the end zone for Worth County's first touchdown, and Rams quarterback Savon Farley broke away for a 60-yard touchdown in the third quarter to tie the game at 14-14.

Ellis Anderson scored the winning touchdown early in the fourth quarter with a 3-yard run. Then on a broken PAT attempt, Cody Vinabong caught a pass from Farley for the 2-point conversion.

"I feel pretty good (about where we are as a team)," Ward said. "I definitely feel a lot better now than I did before the game started.

Worth County (2-2) plays again Friday against Americus-Sumter.

BETHESDA DAY 27, SHERWOOD 0: Sherwood Academy suffered a 27-0 loss at the hands of Bethesda Day on Friday and fell to 0-4 on the season.

The Eagles fumbled on their first two possessions and watched the turnovers become points.

Sherwood went down at halftime, 13-0, as Bethesda took advantage of the Eagles' miscues.

In his first action since a previous injury, freshman quarterback Dalton Todd was knocked out of the game with another injury.

Before his injury, Todd played well, connecting on five passes for 86 yards and rushing for 18 yards.

"We moved the ball but had no capitalization," Sherwood coach Otis Covington said. "On defense we gave up too many big plays and got killed by penalties."

Sherwood wide receiver Vashon Gaines hauled in 71 receiving yards, and Aaron Daniels led the way with eight tackles on defense.

VALWOOD 62, RANDOLPH SOUTHERN 15: The Patriots lost to their second Region 2-IAA opponent of the season Friday night, falling to undefeated Valwood, 62-15.

Randolph Southern (2-2) lost last week to SGA, 48-0. On Friday, Valwood jumped out to an early lead and Randolph Southern could never recover.

"Valwood is tough, good, big and strong," said Randolph Southern coach Otis Griggs, who didn't have stats or names of his players who scored by The Herald's press time.

"We just have to regroup and come back Monday and get back to work."

GEORGIA MILITARY 38, BACONTON CHARTER 7: Baconton Charter found itself on the end of another defeat Friday, losing to Georgia Military, 38-7.

Brock Penson, who carried the ball eight times, tallied the lone score for the Blazers. Baconton quarterback Bacari McDuffie had 10 rushes for 30 yards, and Harrison Dikes had five rushes. Jacob Pollock was 1-for-1 on PATs for Baconton.

Youth continues to be the story this year for the Blazers, who fell to 0-5.

"This ball club is very young, and it's a process. The team will continue to push forward," Baconton coach Glenn Palmer said.

The Blazers hit the road next week against Hebron Christian Academy.

PELHAM 55, STEWART COUNTY 14: The Pelham Hornets lit up the scoreboard Friday with a 55-14 throttling of Stewart County.

The Hornets took advantage with a potent rushing attack, led by Brandon Bostick, who scored three touchdowns with 175 yards rushing.

The team was able to compile 343 total rushing yards on 50 attempts on the evening.

The defense was anchored by Brandon Smith, who played extremely well with 10 tackles. Overall, Pelham coach Frankie Carroll described the victory as a good win that the team needed after back-to-back losses.

"Our kids played hard, and the coaches did a great job getting them ready all week," Carroll said.

Pelham improves to 2-2 on the year and opens up region play against Randolph-Clay next week.
