Carver-Columbus now controls its own destiny.
A week after defeating Shaw, Region 2-AAA's second-place team, the Tigers did the same Saturday to LaGrange with a 19-10 victory over the Grangers.
The win means that Carver Columbus (8-0, 8-0) would have to lose its two remaining games against Jordan (1-7) and Hardaway (4-4) to not clinch the Region 2-AAA crown.
As for LaGrange (6-2, 6-2), Saturday's outcome marks an uncharacteristic second-straight loss for a team that at one point was ranked No. 1 in the Georgia Coaches Poll. It's also the first time since 1998 that the Grangers have fallen in back to back games.
Deron Furr scored on a 25-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that put the game away. He also found Jarmon Fortson on a 40-yard scoring pass.
Furr also had a one-yard touchdown.
