Stephenson, M. L. King remain atop Region 2-AAAAA

The top spot in Region 2-AAAAA is down to a two-way tie between DeKalb County high school football foes Stephenson and Martin Luther King Jr. with both teams undefeated on the season.

Stephenson, 8-0 and ranked No. 4 in Class AAAAA, rallied from a pair of seven point deficits behind the running of Michael Davis to get past upset minded East Coweta (6-2) on Friday night at Hallford Stadium in Clarkston.

The Jaguars trailed 10-3 at the half, but opened the third quarter with a scoring drive capped by T.J. Moon’s 17-yard run for the score to knot the game at 10-10.

East Coweta answered right back marching down the field to take a 17-10 lead on a six-yard touchdown run by Demarcus Godfrey only to see the Jaguars ride the running of Davis who broke away for a 46-yard touchdown run to again knot the game at 17-17 with 1:38 to play in the third quarter.

The Jaguar defense stiffened on East Coweta’s next possession and forced a short punt to take over at the Indian 30-yard line. Stephenson needed seven plays, including a big 10-yard run by Justin Holman on second and eight at the East Coweta 13 to set up a first and goal. Davis went the final yard to give Stephenson a 24-17 lead with 9:45 to play.

East Coweta got the ball back with 3:13 to play at their own 49 and began marching down the field before Stephenson forced the Indians into a fourth and four at the Jaguar six-yard line. Senior defensive lineman Brandon Addison broke through to wrap up the East Coweta quarterback and force a pass that landed harmlessly in the end zone.

Davis finished the game with 123 yards rushing and two touchdowns to lead the Jaguars to the win.

M.L. King 41, Newnan 17
Jonquel Dawson threw for 263 yards and six touchdowns to lead the No. 5 ranked Lions to the 41-17 win to knock Newnan out of a first place tie in Region 2-AAAAA.

Dawson now has 24 touchdown passes on the season which is good for a tie
for third in the DeKalb passing touchdowns in one season category behind
his record setting performance of 41 in 2010.  Blake Tibbs caught nine
passes for 133 yards and a pair of the touchdowns

The Lion defense also forced four turnovers by the Cougars in helping secure the victory.
