The flip of a coin

Albany -- The high school football playoffs move into the third round this week, with some teams needing a coin flip to determine homefield advantage.

If both schools have the same seeding, the tiebreaker is used to figure out where the game will be played.

Coming into the playoffs as a three-seed, Westover is now one game away from the Georgia Dome.

The Patriots lost the flip with Chamblee Saturday, and will have to go on the road to face the Bulldogs Friday night.

Chamblee advanced after a 58-57 overtime upset of Stephens County Friday night.

Cairo won its coin flip with Carver, Atlanta, and will host the undefeated Panthers from Region 5-AAA Friday at 7:30 pm.

Thomas County Central didn't need to worry about a coin flip, as East Paulding doesn't meet the standards to host a playoff game.

The Yellow Jackets will take on the Raiders in Thomasville Friday at 7:30 pm.
