Friday Night Blitz: High school football returns

Friday Night Blitz

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – It’s Friday night in late August, and that means the Blitz is back.

For our first Friday Night Blitz Game of the Week, Savannah Christian Preparatory School hosted Athens Academy.

Last year, the Raiders played the Spartans close on the road, losing by just 13 points. But Friday, Athens Academy proved not only are they one of the best teams in their class, but that their 2018 win was no fluke.

They came out on top, with a 35-7 win over Savannah Christian.

Check out more highlights from around the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry above, with final scores here:
