The Bulldogs of Booker T. Washington High School upped their record to 4-0  and first place in The Atlanta Voice poll after holding off a tough crew of Stone Mountain Pirates 41-32 Friday, September 20  at Lakewood Stadium.

Being  4-0 is no stranger to the blue and white. Last year at this time, they were 4-0 which included a 46-18 triumph over Stone Mountain. “ I knew Stone Mountain would be a challenge for us and especially our defense,” said BTW Head Coach Rodney Hackney (Mays, CAU). “It was good to see our team fight back and win it.”

The lynchpin for the Bulldogs was senior running back Antavis Rowe. He rushed eight times for 141 yards and scored three touchdowns.

In an earlier game at Lakewood, visiting Marist (1-2) proved a bit much for the Panthers of Therrell High. The Eagles scored ten times in the game to beat the Panthers 67-6. Only a fourth period 81-yard bomb by Therrell kept them from being shut out.

Elsewhere in city high school football, the New Schools at Carver lost their second  consecutive ballgame 20-13 to Columbia. Grady defeated Lithonia 25-14, Mays  beat Southwest DeKalb 43-24, BEST defeated McNair 62-7. Chamblee shuts out  South Atlanta 44-0, ML King over North Atlanta 49-7 and Towers beat Douglass  32-0.
