Stephenson and Southwest DeKalb Renew Rivalry in Region 6-AAAAA Play

The two teams meet Friday, Sept. 28 at Hallford Stadium, 7:30 p.m.

Hallford Stadium will host the first meeting of the Southwest DeKalb-Stephenson high school football rivalry since 2005 as the pair of
perennial DeKalb County playoff contenders meet at 7:30 p.m. in a Region
6-AAAAA game.

Southwest DeKalb (3-1) is coming off a tough 14-7 defensive Region 6-AAAAA
match up with Mays to stay in the playoff hunt. The Panthers, 2-1 in
region play, won the last meeting between the two schools 6-0 in 2005 and
lead the series 5-3.

Stephenson (3-0) comes into the game with a 3-0 record in region action
following their 63-0 victory over the Lakeside Vikings (1-3) last week.
The Jaguars also own a No. 4 ranking in Class AAAAA.

The Druid Hills Red Devils (2-1) dive into their first taste of Class
AAAAAA football as they host 2011 Class AAAA runner-up and 2012 Region
2-AAAAAA foe Lovejoy (3-1) at North DeKalb Stadium on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

The Red Devils moved up from Class AAA to Class AAAAAA with
reclassification in 2012 and hold wins over Clarkston (33-2) and Therrell
(27-6) on the season. Lovejoy has wins over Mundy’s Mill (44-6),
Alpharetta (43-24) and East Coweta (30-7) on the season.
