Several region championships are on the line this week for area Georgia teams.

The winner of the following games should decide the region champion: Lincoln County at Wilkinson County and Washington County at Baldwin. Also, Jefferson County can clinch the Region 3-AA title with a win over Screven County. The Warriors close the regular season at third-place Dublin.

Most area South Carolina regions have been decided. This is the last week of the regular season for Class AAA and smaller.

STAT GAMES: Washington County did not complete a pass in its 44-31 win over Burke County but dominated the game offensively. Washington County rushed for 443 yards on 50 attempts in one of the more noteworthy offensive line performances you will see.


7:30 P.M. FRIDAY


Screven County (5-4, 5-4) at Jefferson County (8-0, 8-0): A quirky schedule means this is the final game of the regular season for Screven County. A shocking win could deliver the Gamecocks a playoff bid, but they also will need some help.


Baldwin (6-2, 4-0) at Washington County (8-0, 4-0): Both teams are ranked among the 10 best in Class AAA. Baldwin won 14-12 last year on its way to a perfect regular-reason record.

Thomson (2-6, 1-3) at Burke County (5-3, 1-3): As strong as Burke County started the season, it's hard to believe it could miss the playoffs. Thomson has lost four in a row.


Hephzibah (6-2, 6-1) at Richmond Academy (5-3, 5-2): Both teams are coming off region losses. Hephzibah needs a win to keep pace with the other two teams tied atop the region.

Cross Creek (3-5, 3-4) at Evans (7-1, 6-1): The Razorbacks posted the biggest upset in the region this year by knocking off Richmond Academy last week. They will try again against the region's hottest team.


Midland Valley (7-2, 3-1) at South Aiken (4-5, 3-1): Both teams are playoff-bound; the winner of this game will play host to a first-round game next week.
