Playing their most inspired football in weeks, the Lamar County Trojans defeated the Manchester Blue Devils 28-27 Friday night at Trojan Field to clinch second place in Region 5AA.
The win means Lamar County will host a first round playoff game at Trojan Field next week. Their opponent will be the North Oconee Titans from Bogart. The Titans opened the season with seven straight wins but lost their last three, including a loss Friday night to Fannin County 17-7. They are the third place team from Region 8AA. The Titans are averaging 26 ppg and giving up only 11 ppg.
A win over North Oconee would propel the Trojans to a second round game on the road at Calhoun provided the undefeated Yellow Jackets get past 6-4 Avondale in the first round of postseason play. Calhoun's go to guy is five star, division 1 recruit Da'Rick Rogers who is committed to UGA.

8:40 1st quarter. Lamar 7-0. Mike Bloodser 36-yard TD pass to Desmond Foster. Daniel Huggins PAT.
