GOLDEN BEARS TAKE BIG STEP TOWARDS 4A-REGION 4 TITLE WITH 30-14 HOME WIN THURSDAY AGAINST HANDLEY


It’s not every day a high school football team has a kicker that can connect on field goals attempted from 30-plus yards. But not every team has a guy like Nick Pope.

Lincoln has a true kicker and it showed when the Golden Bears came from behind to defeat Handley 30-14 Thursday night as Pope connected on 3 of 4 field goal attempts. He converted attempts from 32, 36 and 41 yards, while his lone miss, a 44-yarder, just missed hooking through the uprights.

“Pope is our kicking guy and he’s something special,” said Lincoln head coach Matt Zedaker. “I say it all the time that he’s one of the best kickers in the entire state and the best-kept secret in the state. Any time we get close, we feel we have a chance to get points because of him.”

When Pope converted his 41-yarder with 8:23 left in the game, he surpassed 200 career points scored during his high school years. He’ll head into the Golden Bears game next week having scored 202 career points after he converted his third PAT attempt with 2:51 left in the fourth quarter.

“Whenever I was in seventh grade playing varsity football, I set out a goal, which I thought was obtainable, to have 200 career points,” Pope said. “Coming into my senior season, I had 155 points and I felt I was really close to achieving that because we have an explosive offense.”


Zedaker told FNN's Danielle Moss following the win, “A lot of the credit goes to our offensive staff.  They did a great job in us coming back tonight. We haven’t been hitting on all cylinders, but we made a lot of good adjustments during the week.”

Lincoln travels to Childersburg next week where they can almost clinch the region with a road win.  Handley returns home to Wright Field to host Leeds.

SAKS STAYS PERFECT IN 3A AFTER HALFTIME WAKE UP CALL WHILE JACKSONVILLE SURVIVES AT ONEONTA IN LAST SECOND COMEBACK THRILLER TO HIGHLIGHT WEEK 7 ACTION


After what Saks head coach Jonathan Miller called “our worst half of football this year by far,” the top-ranked Wildcats exploded in the third quarter and cruised to a 30-7 win over Weaver on Friday.

The Wildcats scored 23 points in the third quarter and finished with 231 total yards in the second half after gaining only 60 during the first two quarters. Weaver led 7-0 at the half after Jadon Calhoun found Shamar Spinks over the middle and Spinks sprinted 59 yards for a touchdown with 1:17 to go in the second quarter.

Miller challenged his team in the locker room and the Wildcats responded in a big way.

“They just needed a little wake-up call and we gave them one,” Miller said. “More so than anything, we challenged them to come out and play with heart, passion on every play.”

Saks scored on its first three drives of the second half. Tony Hunley got the Wildcats on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run. A 49-yard pass from Daveon Dukes to Zay Elston set up Dukes 22-yard touchdown run. T.J. Gibbs capped the third-quarter barrage with a 6-yard touchdown run.


Meanwhile, up at Oneonta, trailing by a touchdown with 2:10 left in the game, Jacksonville quarterback Luke Jackson connected with Omarion “Peanut” Adams five times on the Golden Eagles’ eight-play scoring drive. Ron Wiggins capped it with his second two-point conversion of the night, ensuring Jacksonville of a 22-21 win and keeping the Golden Eagles’ undefeated season alive.


After the comeback was complete, Clint Smith had this to say on what he learned about his team, “We have a group of competitors and they compete and play to the end and that’s what we had to do tonight. Hats off to Oneonta, those guys came in and played their tails off tonight.”


Down in Wedowee, there were more pieces of the 3A-Region 6 puzzle falling into place.  Third-ranked Randolph County won its fourth game in a row to improve to 6-1 overall, 4-1 in 3A, Region 6 headed into next week’s key region game at undefeated Saks.

With a win next week, Randolph County can likely force a three-way tie atop the region and tiebreaker to decide it. Saks beat Piedmont, which beat Randolph County.

Wellborn fell to 5-3, 2-3 with another blow to the Panthers’ playoff hopes. They will likely have to win their final two region games against Pleasant Valley and Piedmont and hope that either Glencoe or B.B. Comer pull out a major upset of Weaver.

Other winners from the viewing region from Week 7 included Oxford, Pleasant Valley, Anniston, Donoho, Spring Garden, Piedmont, Hokes Bluff and Southside-Gadsden.  Ohatchee was off this week.  The Indians will host Ranburne next Friday with the region title on the line.  That game can be seen live on FNN starting at 6:30 PM.
