17 Unbeaten Teams Advance To Quarterfinals of AHSAA Playoffs

MONTGOMERY – Seventeen unbeaten teams survived round two of the Alabama High School Athletic Association 2014 State Football Playoffs Friday and will be in the 52-team field for the quarterfinal round set Friday. All games are scheduled Nov. 21 at  7 p.m.
     For the first time in AHSAA history, seven state champions will be crowned when the playoffs culminate the five-week playoff with the Super 7 State Championships at Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium Dec. 3-4-5.
     Round two started with 19 undefeated teams, but Class 1A Donoho lost to Marion County 29-18 and Class 7A Fairhope fell to Baldwin County rival Foley 34-0 Friday.
     In Class 2A, five of the remaining eight teams are unbeaten on the year. That will change this week, however, since at least two are squaring off and another faces the two-time defending state champion. G.W. Long (11-0) will host Elba (12-0) at Skipperville while Fyffe (12-0) puts its perfect record on the line at Tanner (10-2). The Rattlers of Coach Laron White won the 2A state title in 2012 and 2013.  Washington County (12-0), state runner-up the last two years, will be at home in Chatom against Region 1 rival Flomaton (9-3) and Ranburne (11-0 will host Region 5 rival Woodland (9-3).
    In Class 3A, four unbeaten teams remain with Montgomery Academy (12-0) taking on Dale County (12-0) at Midland City in round three. Glencoe (12-0) will be at Colbert County (8-4) and Gordo (12-0) travels to Opp (9-3).
     In Class 1A and 5A, three unbeaten teams are still alive. All three 1A teams travel this week with Brantley (12-0) at Billingsley (9-2), Maplesville (11-0) at Notasulga (9-3) and Hubbertville (11-0) at Ragland (11-1). In Class 5A, Guntersville (12-0) travels to Pleasant Grove (10-2), East Limestone (12-0) plays Madison County (9-3) at Gurley, and St. Paul’s (12-0) is at home against Region 1 fourth seed B.C. Rain (6-6).
    In Class 6A, McAdory (12-0) will be at home to face Spanish Fort (11-1), the 5A state champs in 2012 and 2013, and Clay-Chalkville (12-0) goes to Decatur (10-2).
    In addition to 2013 champs Tanner (2A) and Spanish Fort (5A), Madison Academy (3A) remained in this year’s field after knocking off Piedmont. The Mustangs will travel to Walter Wellborn (8-3) Friday.
    And in Class 7A, which heads into the semifinals this week, 2012 and 2013 Class 6A state champion Hoover will be at home to Gadsden City (10-2), and Foley (9-3) will host Prattville (10-2).
      Twenty-eight region champions advanced to round three and three teams qualifying as No. 4 seeds (Class 2A Flomaton and Woodland and Class 6A B.C. Rain) also advanced.   
     A total of 26 games are set Friday with four contests in each of the 1A through 6A classifications and two semifinal bouts in Class 7A. The annual state playoffs began in 1996 with four teams competing for one state championship in what was then Class 4A. Championship play for all schools was implemented the following year with four divisions. The six-class system began in 1984 and was replaced last January with the new seven-classification system.
    The semifinals for classes 1A thru 6A will be Nov. 28. The Class 7A finals will be Wednesday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at Jordan-Hare Stadium on the Auburn University campus.
   Classes 3A, 1A and 5A their champions Thursday, Dec. 4, at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively. Classes 4A, 2A and 6A will follow the same time schedule for Super 7 finals on Friday, Dec. 5.
   The AHSAA’s first Unified Football Championship will be played Dec. 3 at 3:30 p.m. This year’s exhibition finals will feature teams from Lawrence County and Hewitt-Trussville in the historic game.
