Hello, November My Week in Sports - Week of October 30, 2017

First week of November and football is still in action. Allatoona had their final regular season game at Dalton High School, 60 miles away. Allatoona went into this game with a guaranteed playoff spot but most importantly, a win would give them home-field advantage for the first round.

Senior Robbie Brunnelle (42)

The last time Allatoona played Dalton was nearly a year ago on November 4, 2016 where Dalton pulled away with a win with a final score of 24-22.

This time was different.

Captains for the game were Seniors Jonathan Walk (2), Parker Gibbs (55), Patrick Daniels (92) and Michael Romans (5).

Everyone on Allatoona's side, including myself, wanted this win because like last week's blog post, there's no place like home.

Another interception this time by Allatoona Junior AJ Thomas (14)

Five sacks, two interceptions, fumble recovery ... Allatoona's defense was on fire! Both Allatoona offense and defense teamed up and gave Dalton their worst loss since 2000.

Final Score:

Dalton 3

Allatoona 38

Head Coach Gary Varner

There's no place like home and this win gave Allatoona home-field advantage! Friday, November 10th, the Buccaneers will play Langston Hughes ... at home.

My week in sports didn't stop with Friday Night Lights. Saturday morning, I went to Mountain View Aquatic Center to capture Allatoona's Cobb Relays swim meet.

Allatoona Swim had a successful swim weekend with several swimmers qualifying for State and multiple swimmers qualifying for Region and County.

Excited to have football to continue turning my lens to during the month of November.

I love playoffs and am looking forward to being back under the lights at Buccaneer Stadium this Friday night.

Until then...

Every game is everything.
