FOOTBALL STOCK

Thunderstorms might be the biggest winner in week four of high school football in the North Fulton area. Inclement weather forced games around Fulton and Forsyth counties to be delayed, postponed or canceled.

The West Forsyth-Roswell game was cancelled after storms rolled in during the national anthem. The Hornets (2-0) and Wolverines (0-2) won’t reschedule the game. The two play in different regions, so it won’t affect the playoff hopes for either team.

The non-region matchup between Forsyth Central (1-1) and Denmark (2-0) also suffered the same fate.

Officials at the Dunwoody-Cambridge game postponed the Region 7-AAAAAA to Saturday night. The Wildcats (1-1) and Bears (1-1) kick off at 7:30 p.m.

In another Region 7-AAAAAA matchup, Centennial (0-2) moved its game with Pope to Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m.

The Fellowship Christian (2-0) game against Walker moved their Region 6-A matchup to Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Walker.

The North Atlanta-Johns Creek game was delayed for over two hours before the schools decided to play Monday at 6:30 p.m.

Lambert (0-3) hosted Peachtree Ridge, and while the game kicked off at the scheduled time, there were two weather delays in the first half.  The Longhorns trailed 7-0 early in the second quarter when the game was delayed and then cancelled shortly after.
