The unbeaten showdown between Thomson and Washington County will have two of the top three teams in Class AAA.

In the newest Associated Press Georgia high school football poll, Thomson remained at No. 2 and Washington County stayed at No. 3 in advance of the teams’ game in Sandersville on Friday. Both squads are 8-0.

Only two other area teams are ranked, however, as Aquinas fell out of the Class A poll. The Irish were No. 3 two weeks ago, but two consecutive losses dropped them to 5-2.

One of those defeats came to Lincoln County, which is up a spot to No. 2 in Class A; No. 10 Wilkinson County gave Aquinas its second loss.

Up in Class AAAA, No. 3 Burke County is the fourth ranked local school.

Also, though no area teams are ranked in the Class AA poll, Washington-Wilkes and Screven County are in the receiving votes section.
