Super Saturday at the Heard County Sports Complex

Saturday, October 22nd will be “Super Saturday” for the recreation football teams, as each Heard County team is scheduled to play at the Heard County Sports Complex in a huge regular season finale of football action. This will be the final time before the Kiwanis Bowl that these football teams will have the opportunity to hone their skills in hopes of making a run through the playoff brackets and eventually to the championship game.

Each year the Kiwanis Bowl takes all the teams in each age bracket and breaks them down according to their final win/loss record which determines how each team will be flighted. Most age groups will have an A, B, and C bracket with the larger age groups (in terms of amount of teams) having a D bracket. The better the win/loss record, the higher bracket the team plays in. Each bracket consists of teams more evenly matched to give players a chance to compete with others on their own level. Theoretically, a team that did not win a game all season can have a shot at winning the championship in their respective bracket. This makes for some exciting competition in a playoff atmosphere. It is either win or go home.

(5/6 Flag Braves- Coach Cosper) -These Braves have already finished their season and are awaiting the start of the 2011 Flag Bowl. They are ranked #1 in the 5/6 yr old division with a record of (5-0).

(7/8 Braves- Coach Dean) -10 a.m. vs Bremen. Coach Dean’s team is coming off another victory against long-time rival Bowdon by a score of 12-6. These Braves are striving to finish the season undefeated this weekend against the Blue Devils as they appear to be in terrific shape to contend for a Kiwanis Bowl Championship title. Coach Dean’s Braves have a record of (6-0) and are ranked 3rd in the 7/8 yr old division.

(7/8 Braves- Coach Marsh) -11:30 a.m. vs Trojan Black. After routing the Bremen Blue team last Saturday by a final of 33-0, Coach Marsh’s Braves will be back in action in their season finale against the Trojan Black team from Carrollton. All teams strive to be playing at the top of their game by season’s end. With only one loss on their record this season, these Braves are poised to make a strong run through the playoff bracket. Coach Marsh’s Braves have a record of (4-1) and are ranked 5th in the 7/8 yr old division.

(9/10 Braves- Coach Yates) -1:00 p.m. vs Carroll County. Coach Yates team has played great defense all year which has earned them the distinction of being one of only two teams in the 9/10 yr old division to not allow a single point this season. They will be looking to continue their success as the Carroll County Lions come calling. Currently, the Braves are ranked 3rd with a record of (6-0). The Lions come into the game ranked 17th with a record of (1-4).

(9/10 Braves- Coach Owens) -2:30 p.m. vs Villa Rica Gold.

Currently, the Braves are ranked 19th in the 9/10 yr old division with a record of (1-5).

(11/12 Braves- Coach Head) -4:00 p.m. vs Trojan White. Last week Coach Head’s Braves had their hands full with the Bremen Blue Devils in a 23-8 loss at Bremen High School. They will look to rebound and put another “W” in the win column this week as they face the Trojan White team. The Braves come into this contest with a record of (2-4) while the Trojans are (3-3).
