Week 3 of the 2017 high school football season featured some fantastic games, with Warner Robins' win over Peach Co. on a last-second field goal, Howard with a big win over Central at the Ed Defore Sports Complex and Northside beating Westside 17-3 at McConnell-Talbert Stadium, and don't forget about the weather causing some games to get delayed!
High School football never gets boring in central Georgia!
And we here at 13WMAZ are excited for another awesome week of football!
We will start the night live at Freedom Field in Warner Robins for #Tailgate13, which will air during Eyewitness News at 5 and 6. That night, the Houston County Bears will host their cross-county rivals and the team they share Freedom Field with, the Veterans Warhawks.
And once #Tailgate13 wraps up, our team of reporters will hit the roads to check out the best action central Georgia has to offer on the gridiron.
Here's where you will be able to find our reporters:
- Central vs. Southwest at Henderson Stadium
- Rutland vs. Howard at the Ed Defore Sports Complex
- Baldwin at Washington Co.
- Houston Co. at Veterans
