Local Sports Report 12/7/21: Southeast Bulloch flag football punches ticket to Atlanta, local basketball teams take the court

Sports

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Southeast Bulloch flag football needed to wait an extra day to take on the Calvary Day Cavaliers.

It was worth the wait for the Yellow Jackets, who now stand on the verge of their first state title in any girls sport after a 12-0 victory in the GHSA semifinals.

After a scoreless first half, Claire Thomas and Alex Odom both scored touchdowns for Southeast Bulloch. The Yellow Jacket defense dealt Calvary both its first shutout and its first loss in program history.

Southeast Bulloch will now face in-county rival Portal in Atlanta at 11 a.m. on Thursday for the Class A-4A flag football championship.

“This is probably one of the most competitive group of girls,” said flag football head coach Maci Cochran. “I coached them in middle school basketball, the majority of them, and I know their drive and I know their competitiveness and they want this more than anything they want to make history.”

“It means everything because we’ve been so close in a bunch of other sports but to know we’re one more game away means everything,” said senior Alana Barnard.


The Johnson boys basketball team defeated Liberty County, 61-40, at home on Tuesday night.
