Junction City has wrapped up 7AA-East again

Junction City keeps rolling and bones up for the postseason against Norphlet, which will make its first playoff appearance since 1980.

For the fifth time in six years, the Junction City Dragons have won outright or at least shared
the 7AA East title. On Friday night the Dragons clinched at least a share of the title with a 61-0
win over Smackover. Junction City rolled up 404 yards of offense and in the process held Smackover to
only 20 yards of offense. For the season the Dragons have held teams to a total of 114 yards
rushing, an average of 12.6 yards a game.
Maurice Moore was the top rusher with 131 yards on 10 carries. Jonathan Sims had 78 yards on four
carries, Perry Williams finished with 62 yards on just three carries and Victor Meadows 52 yards
on two carries. Brannin Carter finished up with 51 yards on seven carries.
The Dragons now take on Norphlet in the regular season finale. A win gives the title outright to
the Junction Boys.
Norphlet comes into the game with a 6-3 record. The Leopards are coming off a disappointing 28-14
loss to the Hampton Bulldogs. The win gave Hampton the third seed for the upcoming playoffs.
