MACON, Ga. — The fifth week of Football Friday Night is in the books. This week offered up some big upsets, a couple of nail-biters, and a pair of region rivals squaring off in Macon.
Here is a look at a roundup of scores and highlights from around Central Georgia:
Game Of the Week
Northeast 52, ACE 26
The Raiders are for real and the Nick Woodford show is coming to a stadium near you. This kid showed why he had so much hype coming into the season. There was one sequence where Woodford broke off a 48-yard run, ACE scored a touchdown and Woodford broke off a 60 plus yard run. 110 yards in 1:30 seconds is just unfair and shows how quickly he can flip a game on its head. But ACE fans shouldn’t walk out of this one disappointed, they simply ran into a buzz saw but showed a lot of fight. ACE will likely be in the playoffs.
Nick Woodford, Northeast Raiders RB: See above. This kid is unreal and has this team in a position to make a real run at a state championship.
Rutland: Big win for the Hurricanes this week over Central. They had not beaten the Chargers in consecutive seasons since the 2012-2013 seasons but on Thursday night they made it back-to-back and sit 2-2 on the season.
West Laurens: That is a big win for this program to not only take Bleckley County into overtime but come away with the win. After opening with two losses, they’ve come back with a pair of wins.

Houston County vs Warner Robins
This may be the first time in a while that Warner Robins comes into this game as the underdog but that is what it feels like. Houston County pulled off a 28-8 win last year in this one and the Bears look poised to start a winning streak in this series.
