BCHS and Dublin squared off Friday night at the Shamrock Bowl for the first time in three years.  Though an early season game, both teams were motivated to win.  Bleckley sought to avoid going 0-4.  Plus this was the first trip for head coach Tracy White back to Dublin where he spent many years as an assistant coach.  The Irish were celebrating Homecoming.

Both teams took chances.  Bleckey tied the game on a first quarter halfback pass from Autin Simmons to LaDarrick Vickers when it was fourth and sixth from the 27.  Late in the game with Dublin down seven, the Irish tried a fake punt deep in their own territory.  It wasn't successful.

The Royal defense stoped Dublin on fourth and 11 from the BC 16, their second stop that night on fourth down, sealing a 28-21 win.  According to the Georgia High School Football Historians Association (ghsfha.org) it was the first win in 11 meetings for Bleckley.
