THOMSON - On paper it looked like a mismatch. But someone forgot to tell the Westover Patriots they weren't expected to win their opening playoff game against Thomson.

WASHINGTON, Ga. - Georgia has its "Finish the Drill." Washington-Wilkes has its "Finish the Deal."

Player of the week: Danny Daggett

He then halted a Patriots march to tie the game late in the first half when he picked off a pass in the end zone. He put a 12-6 game out of reach when he returned the second-half kickoff 94 yards along a sideline-to-sideline jaunt for his second touchdown. Daggett has been a part of 10 touchdowns for the Eagles over the past three weeks.
