Fullington Academy will be trying to make the second straight Thursday night game it’s about to play end with a much different outcome than the first one it just had.
On the heels of a 21-20 loss to a Georgia Christian team playing a junior varsity schedule, the 3-4 Trojans now play host this evening at 7 to perennial power Robert Toombs Academy which enters with a 5-3 mark.
The contest is being played a night earlier than unusual to avoid conflict with the home team’s annual fall festival fundraiser.
“They’re a lot better than their record indicates,” Fullington coach Jerry Breeden said in launching discussion about the Crusaders who when they’ve prevailed this season have won big.
“I’ve seen them both on video and personally in their rout (51-0) last week of First Presbyterian Christian and it’s obvious they have good size in the line and good quickness at the skill positions.”
