Two of the country’s perennial football powerhouses are set to face off against each other in another heated iteration of the “Winnersville Classic.”  This rivalry began being played in 1968 following the opening of Lowndes high school. Lowndes currently sits on a five game winning streak over Valdosta; however, Valdosta holds the series lead with 37 wins to Lowndes’ 23. Valdosta, the nation’s all-time leader in wins, looks to get back to winning ways and snap Valdosta’s winning streak. Will this happen or will Lowndes continue their streak of dominance? Tune in on October 7th to find out!

Lowndes opened tonight landing a field goal with 8:45 left in the first quarter. Valdosta answered with a TD but a missed extra point to bring the score to 6-3 with just over 5 minutes left in the 1st. Just before the start of the second quarter, the Wildcats put another 7 up, the Vikings secure a field goal, and the game goes into halftime 13-6. Both defenses held tight in the second half, and this rivalry game ends this year with the Wildcats securing in the Winnersville Classic for the first time since 2016.
