Stephens County Indians will face St. Pius today at home, in high school football

The Stephens County Indians will play their final regular season game tonight at home at The Reservation against region-foe, St. Pius, in high school football.

A victory by the Indians combined with a Madison County loss to Oconee County would create a 3-way tie for third place in the region between Stephens County, St. Pius, and Madison County.

The third and four-place teams will advance to the State Playoffs.

Due to the region-approved tie-breaker system, Stephens County would still have a chance to make the playoffs.

The Indians are coming off a close 2 point loss at Madison County last week, 35 to 33, which dropped their region mark to 0 & 3 and 1 & 8 overall.

St. Pius had last Friday off, but two weeks ago, the Golden Lions pulled out a last minute victory over Madison County, 14 to 7, to improve their record to 1 & 2 in the region and 4 & 5 overall.

Tonight is also senior night at The Reservation.  Kickoff will be at 7:30.

Last night on the Crunch Time radio show, Stephens County’s Wide Receivers & Head J-V coach, Greg McCall, said St. Pius runs the triple-option offense, and they do it well.

Coverage on 93.1 FM and AM 630 WNEG starts at 5:30 p.m. with the Indian Tailgate Show. Coach’s Corner starts at 7 p.m. and pre-game coverage from the stadium starts at 7:15 p.m.

In the other Region 8-AAAA game tonight, Oconee County host Madison County.

Looking elsewhere around the area this evening, Franklin County host Monroe Area, Hart County travels to Morgan County, Habersham Central is on the road at Appalachee, Banks County goes to Elbert County, Rabun County will travel to Union County, Commerce host George Walton Academy, and White County host Blessed Trinity.
