QB John Urzua and his North Gwinnett temmates are a win away form the Region 7-AAAAAA title.

Mill Creek traveled to Norcross on Friday night and did something the Hawks hadn’t done in eight previous games against the Blue Devils-won. Not only did Mill Creek defeat two-time defending AAAAAA champion Norcross, they did it convincingly by pitching a shutout on the way to a 30-0 victory that secured the Hawks spot in the state playoffs.

While Mill Creek was taking care of business against Norcross, North Gwinnett was doing the same against Meadowcreek, 50-6, and now sits atop the Region 7-AAAAAA standings.

Week 11 Region 7-AAAAAA Game Results

Duluth 20 @ Mountain View 28

Mountain View won their second straight region game by defeating visiting Duluth with a bruising ground attack that saw Nick Harris total 155 yards on 23 carries. He also scored two touchdowns in the first W for Mountain View over Duluth in the brief history of the school. The Bears are playing their just their fourth full regular season schedule and improved to 2-4 in region play (3-6 overall) with the victory while Duluth falls to 0-6 in league action (1-8 overall).

Player of the Game: Nick Harris (Mountain View)

Meadowcreek 6 @ North Gwinnett 50

For the second week in a row, North Gwinnett did what good teams do-beat teams you are supposed to beat in dominating fashion. Week 11 saw Meadowcreek, one of two teams still winless in region play, visit North and leave after receiving a 50-6 drubbing. The win means a Bulldog victory at home against Mountain View this Friday will lock up the Region 7 title for North.

Player of the Game: North QB Jon Urzua, Week 10 GSR Offensive Player of the Week, racked up 278 yards and five TDs on just 12 completions (16 attempts) in a little more than two quarters of work.

Mill Creek 30 @ Norcross 0

Mill Creek followed their Week 10 blowout win over Collins Hill (51-7) by dominating Norcross on both sides of the ball in a 30-0 victory that assures the Hawks a slot in the state playoffs. The Mill Creek defense held Norcross to just 47 yards of total offense (-29 rushing on 32 attempts, 76 passing) while using the ground attack to control the clock and wear down the opposing defense. The Hawks ran the ball 50 times for 274 yards while only attempting seven passes.

Players of the Game: Mill Creek running back Johnathan Hawkins totaled 96 yards on 24 carries while quarterback Daniel David totaled 139 on 15 rushes to lead the Hawks attack. Hawkins and David each scored two touchdown s in the W.

Peachtree Ridge 38 @ Collins Hill 3

Like Mill Creek, Peachtree Ridge came off a big Week 10 win (35-2 over Norcross) and delivered another impressive effort in defeating Collins Hill by five touchdowns, 38-3.

Player of the Game: Quarterback Chance Thrasher (Peachtree Ridge) passed for TDs of 12 and 50 yards as well as running for another from 2-yards out.
