Heritage feeder teams head to playoffs

The Heritage School's feeder-program football teams head into the first round of the MACAC playoffs this Thursday after putting together a pair of victories over Flint River last week while outscoring its opponents by a 70-20 margin.

The Hawks middle school team, which will host Loganville Christian on in Thursday's opening round, is coming off a 24-8 win over Flint River that included a pair of touchdown runs by Hunt Thomas in the first half.

Heritage, which held the Wildcats to just four first downs, also received a pair of scores from Hays Burns, including a 70-yard touchdown run. The Hawks' other touchdown came from quarterback Wright Arnall.

Jake Martin added an interception to seal the win while Charlie Moinor added a key pass breakup on defense. Thomas and Burns led Heritage tacklers along with Jake Lamarka.

The Hawks' lower-school lineup, which will travel to Strong Rock for the first round of the playoffs, built a 40-point halftime lead and rolled past Flint River in a 40-12 victory that included five touchdowns of at least 40 yards. Branch Burns scored three times - all from at least 40 yards out. They included a 60-yard punt return. Teammate Raymond Feckoury also added a 45-yard touchdown on a buck sweep while Hershall Smith, Camden Trammell and Blake Coggins each had two-point conversions.

Before the end of the half, Lee Underwood raced 50 yards on an inside handoff for a touchdown and Andrew Rich tacked on the two-point try for a 40-0 halftime advantage.
