It’s good to see Piedmont willing to schedule Leeds. They’re two of the top five teams in Class 3A, and both coaches probably would’ve appreciated a less intense opponent for a week when they’re playing outside their region.
But they played each other, with Piedmont taking a 26-10 win.
Clay Central and Munford, a pair of unbeaten teams, didn’t mind playing each other, either. Clay Central took a 30-14 victory.
And Oxford was willing to schedule Florence, adding to what already was a tough schedule for the Class 6A Yellow Jackets.
Oxford scored a 26-20 road victory, which improves the Yellow Jackets to 3-2 after an 0-2 start.
So, even though this wasn’t a week for region games for most local teams, it still was a week for good, competitive football.
