Tuesday’s games were postponed due to inclement weather.

Both Evans and East Coweta are currently tied for third place at 4-4, with ECMS hold- ing the current tiebreaker.

Arnall’s boys also picked up its first win of the season against Madras as both teams moved even with each other at 1-7. The Knights picked up 16 points from Fernandez Jones and 14 from Jalen Whisby in a 45-29 victory over the Eagles.
