Week 10 Roundup: Stone Memorial Earns Huge Road Win; Upperman Rallies Past Walker Valley

The Stone Memorial Panthers had more to play for in Week 11 of the 2021 high school football season, but that did not stop the Panthers from being locked in on their Week 10 opponent, Kingston. The Yellowjackets came in with a 7-1 record and ranked seventh in the State in Class 3A. That mattered none to the surging Panthers, who rallied from a 20-14 halftime deficit, and eked out a 34-33 victory.

Stone Memorial (6-3) has won three of their last four games – a tough, 21-19 loss to Macon County their only defeat – and will host Region foe, DeKalb County, on October 29 to determine the number-three seed our of Region 4-4A for the playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Upperman Bees found themselves in a 14-0 hole, Friday night, at home against a good Walker Valley team out of Class 5A. The Bees missed some opportunities in the first half, but made adjustments at the half, and used a 28-0 run to roll on to victory.  QB Ty Dutchess connected on 12 of his 14 passes for 117 yards, ran for another 113 yards on just 12 carries, and took part in all four Upperman touchdowns. Daniel Metzgar caught nine passes for 87 yards and two scores, while Terrance Dedmon was a beast on defense, totaling 6.5 total tackles, two sacks, and two tackles for loss.
