Friday Night Blitz 2021 Week 12 scores, highlights

Friday Night Blitz

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Between the first week of playoffs in South Carolina and deciding games for region championships, it was a jam-packed Friday night in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.

And with that, our Friday Night Blitz Game of the Week was at one of the best rivalries in all of Georgia.

Pierce County High School is looking to repeat as Class AAA state champions this year. But before they do, the Bears had to wrap up a region championship against the Appling County High School Pirates.

There’s been some bad blood between these two teams.

Appling County head coach Jordan Mullis said part of the challenge of playing Pierce County is keeping his guys in line during the game and making sure they don’t get penalized or thrown out.

The Bears won last year’s matchup with Appling County 28-21. Pierce County came up with six sacks in that game.

Although it was a 0-0 first half, the Pirates didn’t get their revenge. Bears finished up the game with 20 points on the board.
