Coach Jeff Littleton and the Bainbridge Bearcat Football team will travel to Stockbridge to take on the 12-1 Tigers this week. The winner will advance to the State Championship game, played in Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
The Cats (8-5) are in the Semifinals for the first time since 2015 and defeated perennial powerhouse Buford 23-20 last Friday night to advance. Last Friday night’s win against Buford was more than just a seasonal upset – the Bearcats snapped the Bears’ 35 game home playoff win streak and on Wednesday, Buford parted ways with Head Coach John Ford. This is the second time the Bearcats have played in the semifinals under Coach Littleton, with the last game ending in a loss to eventual state champion Cartersville.
