The big showdown in the power rankings this week is between Hewitt-Trussville (9th in the power rankings) and Bob Jones (16th). The two teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games. Keep an eye on the score for this one: both Hewitt-Trussville and Bob Jones put up some lofty point totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they play one another this week.
The battle between Central (ranked 3rd in the state) and Opelika (ranked 52nd) turned out to be a somewhat underwhelming competition. Central had all the answers against Opelika, winning 46 - 19. Opelika had come in flaunting an aggressive defense allowing an average of only 11.5 points per game, but that obviously didn't scare off Central.
This Week's Big Showdown
One of the hottest tickets last week involved the clash between Ramsay (ranked 22nd in AL) and Grayson (ranked 1st in GA). Ramsay has to be hurting after a devastating 42 - 16 defeat at the hands of Grayson. It wasn't all bad, though, since the team's performance bumped it up two places in the power rankings.
Game of Inches
Things turned out as expected for Pinson Valley last week -- mostly, at least. The team was expected to win big, but the final result was not so decisive. It battled it out with Shades Valley for a well-earned 28 - 27 overtime victory. The outcome was a definite jolt of excitement for Pinson Valley after its previous game, where the margin was anything but close. The razor-thin margin made this game the most thrilling one of the week.
