Trinity Christian is the AJC’s No. 1 ranked team in the GHSA 1-A Private poll. The Lions blasted Athens Academy last week 59-7 behind 3 first-half TD passes from quarterback David Dallas.
East Coweta (1-0) is looking to make it two in-a-row with its home opener against New Manchester at 8 p.m. The Indians downed Whitewater last Saturday in the Chick-fil-A Coweta-Fayette Kickoff Classic. Trey Bowles’ 99-yard touchdown run to open the third quarter gave the Indians a commanding 38-3 lead on their way to a 41-24 victory.
Northgate (0-1) hopes to break into the 2021 win column at Locust Grove. The Vikings could only muster a 35-yard field goal from Nick Troemel in their 24-3 loss to Sandy Creek in Saturday’s Kickoff Classic. Tonight’s game begins at 7:30 p.m.
And finally, Central Christian School (0-1) travels to Duluth to face Notre Dame Academy looking for its first win. The Crusaders dropped a hard-fought 24-18 decision to North Georgia last Friday. Kickoff tonight is at 7:30 p.m.
