Peachtree Ridge and Roswell are set to meet again in the playoffs for the second straight year in round No. 2's matchup Friday night.
And while this year's game doesn't carry the exact same implications as last season's championship showdown - a contest that ended in a 14-14 tie and consequent sharing of the trophy by both teams - it certainly carries its share of weight as both teams are looking to reclaim the 5A throne.
A throne that both teams would love to sit atop by themselves.
Last year's tie resulted in a rule change that any championship contest must not be completed until a winner is declared.
This year's showdown pits two teams against each other that are riding high in the playoffs.
The Lions (8-3 overall, 6-2 regional play) lost two times in the month of October but are coming off an improbable upset of powerhouse North Cobb in round one. Peachtree Ridge defeated Cobb County's most talented team 35-28.
Led by UCF commitment and standout tailback Brandon Davis, the Panthers are averaging just under 31 points per game.
They will need all of that and then some against a Hornets (9-2, 4-1) squad that prides itself on defense. Roswell allows just under nine points per contest and scores over 31.
The Hornets stomped South Gwinnett 48-10 last week to open their playoff schedule.
So will come out victorious in the biggest rematch of this year's Georgia state football playoffs? Find out Friday night...
