Dooly County misses out on home playoff game

Vienna — Dooly County High won’t get to play a home game after all when the Class A Georgia High School Association state playoffs for public schools begin next week.

The No. 8 power ranking the Bobcats had held going into the final week of regular season did not hold despite their convincing 46-20 victory over  Schley County.

Surprisingly, Class AAAA Crisp County hurt Dooly’s bid for a higher ranking when in its regular season finale it beat the Americus-Sumter team that had earlier defeated the Bobcats. Taylor County’s 7-0 victory over Class AA Macon County had the same effect on Dooly.

Those outcomes and others resulted in Dooly being ranked 10th and as such it must visit No. 7 Lincoln County in a game to be played No. 22 at 7 p.m. in Lincolnton. The contest represents a re-match of last year’s second-round battle between the two. The Bobcats (7-3) beat the now x-x Red Devils 34-28.

Two other teams from Region 4-A where Dooly is aligned did earn home field playoff berths. As the loop’s regular season champion and the No. 2 public school seed overall, Marion County hosts 15th-ranked Turner County. Sixth-ranked Hawkinsville entertains No. 11 Mitchell County.

In addition to Dooly, Marion and Hawkinsville, two other members of Region 4-A earned spots in the 16-team Class A private school field. No. 12 Brookstone visits No. 5 Landmark Christian while No. 15 Pacelli goes to Mt. Pisgah.

While Region 4-A thus will have five of its members in the playoff field, Region 2-A in which Wilcox is aligned will have just four all of which are in the public school division.

In addition to aforementioned Turner County, they are No. 3 seed Clinch, which welcomes No. 14 Claxton, No. 4 seed Irwin County, which plays host to No. 13 Trion and No. 9 Charlton which goes to No. 8 Commerce.
