Heritage School, Trinity Christian and East Coweta continue to lead local football squads
From Staff Reports
Heritage School, Trinity Christian and East Coweta lead the pack of Coweta County Schools heading into Week No. 7 of the 2022 prep football season.
Heritage School has reeled off six consecutive victories for a perfect 6-0 record. The Hawks used four receptions from receiver Thomas Scoggins for 137 yards and two TDs in a 41-9 romp over King’s Ridge Christian last Thursday in Alpharetta. Heritage School is open tonight but travels to Perry to face 3-3 Westfield School on Oct. 14.
Trinity Christian is on a four-game win streak of their own and stands at 4-2 on the season. The Lions got a 21-yard field goal from Luke Schwarting early in the fourth quarter to turn back then-No. 7 Starr’s Mill, 3-0, last week in Sharpsburg. Noseguard Cam Matthews led a ferocious Lions defensive effort with 14 tackles, four QB pressures, one forced fumble, a sack and four tackles for losses in the win. Trinity Christian, who jumped from GHSA 1-A Private to 4-A this season, makes the short trek to Fayetteville tonight to face 5-1 Whitewater which is now ranked at No. 7 in Class 4-A.
East Coweta got a much needed off week last Friday after seeing its four-game win streak snapped on Sept. 23 in a 31-24 loss to Lambert. It doesn’t get any easier tonight as the 4-2 Indians travel up Hwy. 27 to tangle with 6-0 Carrollton, which is ranked No. 4 in Class 7-A.
Newnan got back on the winning track last Thursday in Dallas with an impressive 31-14 thumping of East Paulding. The Cougars, 2-4, return to Drake Stadium tonight for Homecoming and will face Alexander (2-4).
Northgate is also coming off an open week and stands at 1-5 on the season. The Vikings last action was on Sept. 23 as Veterans ruined Northgate’s Homecoming with a 21-9 win at Henry Seldon Field. Northgate is at home tonight to face 3-3 McIntosh.
Central Christian, back in GAPPS 8-man football, is now 2-4 on the year. The Crusaders fell to Praise Academy last Friday in Powder Springs, 32-6. Tonight, Central Christian is at home and will host a 5-1 Sherwood Christian School squad.
