Placeholder Image
Region playoffs are in full swing and while it is known that the Lady Tigers and the First Presbyterian Men Highlanders advanced to the next round other local teams are still in contention. There are two teams that were eliminated after round one. Here is a quick look at what’s happening around Liberty and Long County.

Bradwell High School
The Lady Tigers advance to the next round and are scheduled to play rival Beach High this afternoon at Joe Greene Stadium at Beach High. Tip-off is scheduled for 4 p.m.
The Men were eliminated after a disappointing loss to Beach on Wednesday night. They end their season at 17-9 overall and 9-6 in 3-AAAAA.

Liberty County High
The Men Panthers were scheduled to play against Cross Creek on Wednesday night.
The Lady Panthers were scheduled to play against Harlem Thursday night. Full results of both will be in Sunday’s Coastal Courier.

First Presbyterian
Christian Academy
After defeating Thomas Jefferson Academy in the first round of the playoffs (81-50), the Highlanders already earned a state bid. They were scheduled to play Robert Toombs Academy on Thursday night. If they win they would play Bethesda tonight for the region championship. If they lose they would play Providence Christian. All Region Games are at East Georgia College in Swainsboro.

Long County High School
While the Lady Tide were sent packing Tuesday night after their loss to Brantley County, 36-52, the men are hoping they would receive a Valentine’s Day gift in the form of a win. They were scheduled to take on Jeff Davis County Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. They play at Savannah Christian Academy.
The loss for the Lady Tide eliminates them from state contention. They end their season at 6-17 overall and 4-20 in 2-AA region.
