PSN Game of the Week - Roswell Takes On Milton As Both Teams Look To Remain Unbeaten In Region Play
1. Milton and Roswell face off in a region match up in which the winner would sit alone at the top of the region standings as they are the only two in their region with no region losses. Both teams will head into Friday’s contest with some momentum behind them as Roswell was winners of two straight heading into their bye week after falling to Walton last month. Meanwhile Milton, also coming off of a bye week, are winners of their last five games after losing to North Cobb back in August in week two of the season.
For Roswell, head coach Chris Prewett, picking up the two wins, which were region games, after their loss heading into the bye week “was huge” in the team’s effort to stay on course with accomplishing goals that they set for themselves. “One of the goals we set out for at the beginning of the year was to host as many playoff games as we can. And ultimately, if we can do that and get into that one or two seed in the region, you get a chance to do that,” Prewett said in an interview with Daminon Lewis.
Prewett went on to say that with the team understanding that they can control their “own destiny”, following the loss to Walton he and his coaching staff did an overall assessment and identified the areas that they felt they executed well in. “We really spent the last two weeks harping on going 1-0, not worrying about playoff scenario. Maybe we talked about it too much early in the year,” Prewett said, adding that instead they spoke about putting “sole focus” on the game at hand.
2. Alexander and Rome will face off in a big region match up as both teams, along with three others in the region, will head into Friday night with only one loss in the region standings so a lot on the line in this one.
3. Woodland (Stockbridge), who has only one region loss, looks to get a statement region win, when they face Dutchtown, who is unbeaten in region play. If Woodland can pick up the win, they can avoid falling two games behind in the standings and stay in contention for a top two finish in the final standings.
4. Lovejoy and Langston Hughes will go head to head as the only two teams with no region losses in their region, so the winner would take sole possession of first in the standings.
5. Sandy Creek will look to remain unbeaten on the season and in region play when they face Carver-Atlanta, who has only one region loss and can remain in the hunt for a top three finish in the standings with the win.
