Party poopers. Arriving in a foul mood after losing at Warner Robins the previous week, the Greyhounds spoiled Evans’ homecoming celebration with a 41-6 victory last Friday to remain in the running for a state playoff berth.

Senior wingback Undre Williams ran for 207 yards and five touchdowns, including scoring runs of 75 and 73 yards, and sophomore fullback Walker Juhan piled on with 221 yards rushing and a 50-yard touchdown run as the visitors ran for a total of 521 yards in the game to improve to 4-2 on the season.

The win leaves Jones County tied with Lakeside-Evans for third place in Region 2-AAAAA, with the top four teams advancing to state. Both are 2-1 in league play.

But the region’s top party crasher comes calling this Friday at Greyhound Field. Northside-Warner Robins (6-0), ranked first in both the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the Associated Press polls after previous AP No. 1 Tucker lost to Stephenson 13-6 last week, visits Jones County for the 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

The Eagles are averaging 48 points a game while giving up only seven. They whipped Grovetown 56-14 in a Saturday afternoon game last weekend.

Coach Dwight Jones understands his team is the decided underdog, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to concede the game.

“Everyone knows Northside and Warner Robins are the two best teams in the region, two of the best in the state,” he said. “But that doesn’t mean we come out and go through the motions. We need to play hard and smart and see what happens. We certainly can’t afford the kind of mistakes we had against Warner Robins.”
