The "Road to the Dome" makes one final stop at Drake Stadium home of the Newnan Cougars. They take on the Northside [Warner Robins] Eagles. Both teams competed in nail biting contests last week, both winning by less than a touchdown. Northside is looking to recapture the state title they won in 2006, but they must defeat the Cougars, a feat no team has accomplished all year.

Colquitt County is coming off an upset victory over Stephenson High School. Can their miraculous Road to the Dome roll on? Will Lassiter be able to continue its string of dominating performances, like last week's 70-49 drubbing of South Gwinnett?
Both schools are known for more than just their great football teams, of course. Colquitt is home to Georgia's 2008 Teacher of the Year.
Lassiter, in turn, was awarded the Georgia Public School of Excellence in 1992,1999 and most recently 2008.
Both schools, this far into the playoffs, have made their marks in football, and this Friday night's contest promises to be a classic. Good luck to the Packers and the Trojans!
