Week 11 Football: Upperman Rolls Past Livingston; Jackson Co. Clinches #3 Seed

The Upperman Bees tuned up for the playoffs, Thursday night, by scoring 35 first-half points en route to a 49-7 win over Region rival, Livingston Academy. Ty Dutchess passed for 137 yards and two touchdowns, then added two more scores on the ground in the victory. Upperman (9-1) entered the game ranked seventh in the State in the latest Associated Press Class 4A poll, and has locked down the top seed out of Region 4-4A for the playoffs, which start next Friday night. Upperman will most likely host either Soddy Daisy or Hixson. Livingston Academy’s season ends at 0-10.

Meanwhile, the Jackson County Blue Devils clinched third place in Region 5-3A on Thursday night, with a 6-2, baseball score victory over Stratford. The victory snapped a two-game slide for the Blue Devils (4-5), who ended up winning three of their last five regular season games after a 1-3 start. Jackson County will travel to either Waverly or Fairview for the first round of the playoffs, next Friday night.
