My Weekly Power Poll

1. Thomson-1-0

2. Strom Thurmond-1-1

3. Washington County-2-0

4. North Augusta-2-1

5. Burke County-0-1

6. Lincoln County-1-0

7. Silver Bluff-2-0

8. Laney-1-0

9. Aquinas-1-0

10. Augusta Christian-2-0


There’s only one small change in my poll, as the top nine remain the same. But Augusta Christian does replace Lakeside after the Panthers lost to Statesboro. However, it’s possible Lakeside could play well at Thomson this week and lose and still be considered one of the area’s 10 best even at 0-2.


This week’s slate is intriguing. Besides the Lakeside-Thomson game, Washington County is at home against ECI and Washington-Wilkes is at Lincoln County.


Also, Burke County – the only team without a win in my poll – will have no trouble getting to 1-1. The Bears should be up by at least four touchdowns at the half against Hephzibah.
