* Region Game
Pepperell will play in a series of mini games with Rockmart and Cedartown at Paulding County High school on Monday, November 11. These mini games will determine which two teams will go on to play either Adairsville or Calhoun in the first round of the playoffs on Friday November 14.
The first two teams (decided by coin toss) will play at 6 p.m. and the second mini game will begin at 7 p.m.
Pepperell's game or games will be broadcasted on Q102.3 fm and streamed online as usual.
How the mini-games work:
Each mini-game is made up of two five-minute halves. Standard rules apply and each half will start with a kickoff. There is a two-minute intermission. If teams are tied, they will use the GHSA 15-yard overtime tie-breaking procedure.
A coin flip will determine the participants of the first game. Team A and Team B meet in the first game. The winner advances to the state playoffs. The loser will play Team C in the second mini-game, with the winner advancing.
The winner of the regular-season meeting between the two successful teams will be the higher seed in the playoffs.During the regular season in Region 5-AAA: Cedartown beat Rockmart and lost to Pepperell; Rockmart beat Pepperell and lost to Cedartown, and Pepperell beat Cedartown and lost to Rockmart.
Teams involved in a mini-game will play their first-round state playoff game on Saturday, unless both teams agree to play on Friday.
