If either Thomasville or Early County wants to make it to the playoffs, that will depend on what happens when they meet Friday night.
Although, their paths are slightly different.
For the Bulldogs (7-2 overall, 7-0 Region 1-AA) all they have to do is win. After losing two early games against non-regional oppoonents, they find themselves in position to control their own destiny.
They face a Bobcats (8-1, 6-1) team that has beaten them the last two years. Thomasville averages 32.3 points per game on offense and allows 13.2 on defense behind the play of talented defensive lineman Brandon Thompson.
As for Early County, getting into the playoffs won't be as easy. Not only must they defeat the Bulldogs but they must rely on Brooks County to defeat Fitgerald.
The Bobcats have a stout defense that give up just under 13 points per game and an offense that posts just under 32.
Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
