Brooks Stops Fitzgerald’s Winning Streak

Fitzgerald Ga.- Region 1 AA is usually decided by the winner of this game each year. As promised this would be a great game to watch. Coach Maurice Freeman always has a good team and they showed up tonight.

Fitzgerald would take the opening drive down and put the first points on the board of the night. Missing the extra point, they would take a 6-0 lead. Brooks not to be denied, would then answer and top the score taking the lead at 7-6.

The Canes would add a field goal in the second quarter to regain the lead at 9-7. Brooks had an explosive offense and right before the half they would take the lead again going into halftime 14-9. Brooks Facing 3rd or 4th and long a few times all night they would not panic and get the job done over and over.

Fitzgerald’s J.D King and James Graham would add 140 yards each tonight each, but just couldn’t push the scores in. Give Brooks defense credit. They stepped up many times tonight stopping the Fitzgerald drives.

The Canes had two good chances to take the lead late, but a fumble from usually sure handed J.D King inside the 5 yard line and a goal line stand with seconds remaining in the game from Brooks would deny Fitzgerald and put a stop to their winning streak.

Fitzgerald will travel next week to Pelham in another Region matchup while Brooks will be on the raod in Early County.

Final Score: Fitzgerald 17 Brooks 21
