MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Colquitt County and Lowndes both haven't lost since mid-September.

Both teams will face off for the last game of the regular season. All they have to play for is the Region 1-AAAAAAA championship.

Don't be fooled by Colquitt County's 5-4 record this season.

The defending champs have won when it counted, and just like 8-1 Lowndes, are undefeated in region play.

The Vikings will visit them Friday night at Mack Tharpe Stadium looking to snap a three-game skid in the series.

If the past few weeks are any indication, this will be a barn burner.

Both teams have averaged well over 40 points per game in the last five weeks.

If you ask Rush Propst, no matter the outcome both teams will be poised to compete for the state title.

"The winner of this game has the distinct advantage from the standpoint of not having to travel as much. The loser of this game is still not out of it  by no stretch of the imagination, the problem is you'll probably get one playoff game at home and have to travel to Norcross in the second round," said Propst.

Kickoff in Moultrie will be at 7:30 p.m.

This will make yet another one seed and home field advantage on the line for the Packers and Vikings.
