Trojans travel to NE Macon Friday; need win, miracle to make playoffs

The Lamar County Trojans (5-4, 2-3) close out the regular season Friday night when they battle the Northeast Raiders. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Thompson Stadium in Macon.

The Raiders (7-2, 4-1) are ranked #5 after thrashing Monticello 40-7 last week. The Trojans had last Friday off.

The Trojans have to win Friday night and have winless Monticello beat Washington County in order to reach the playoffs. WACO (4-4, 2-3), despite a late season swoon which knocked them out of the rankings, has the tiebreaker edge over LC thanks to a 46-20 win over the Trojans here Sept. 24.

Bleckley County (10-0, 6-0) clinched the Region 3AA title Friday night with a 42-6 win over Southwest. The Royals are ranked #3. Northeast is second in the region standings. Dodge County (6-3, 3-2) is third in the region after topping WACO 26-19 last week. They face Southwest this week.

Should the stars align and the Trojans earn the region’s #4 seed, they would likely face #2 Thomasville on the road in the first round.
