Travis Custis rushed for 98 yards and four touchdowns as Lovejoy pounds visiting Rockdale 41-0 during homecoming ceremonies at Twelve Oaks Stadium on Friday.

Terry Henderson and Jeff Murphy had a touchdown reception each.

Before the game, Lovejoy coach Al Hughes was given a signed football in recognition of his 100th coaching victory, which he got last week against Druid Hills in the region opener.

Union Grove 21, Ola 7

Derrick Craine rushed for two touchdowns and the Wolverines took advantage of two big plays on special teams for a Region 4-AAAAA victory Friday at home.

Union Grove improves to 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the region. Ola falls to 1-4 and 0-1.

Mustangs quarterback C.J. Carr gave Ola an early lead with a long touchdown run in the first quarter.

But it was all Union Grove from there.

Union Grove pulled away with its special teams play. Demetrius Jackson blocked a field goal to set up Caleb Hamm’s touchdown catch from Wolverines quarterback Jonathan Slade for a 15-7 lead at halftime. Dalton Tumlin blocked a punt inside Ola’s 20-yard line to set up Craine’s second touchdown.
