CANEY BAY — Brantley County’s goal entering the 2020 campaign was to reach the playoffs for a second straight season.
Despite an 0-6 start in non-region play, that goal is still within reach. Each of the Herons’ first six opponents, all with winning records, has a combined 23-11 won-loss mark (.676 winning percentage).
The Herons must win at least one of their four remaining games against Region 1-AAA foes. Both Tattnall County (0-5) and Long County (0-6) are still looking for their first wins of the year as well.
“All we have is region play left,” said Brantley County head coach Geoff Cannon. “We’ve got to do what we can to reach our goal of making the playoffs.”
Up first is eighth-ranked Pierce County (4-1), the two-time defending champions from Region 2 before realignment. A trip to Ludowici is followed by a home date with the Warriors.
Brantley County closes with sixth-ranked Appling County.
