There wasn’t much movement this week for area football teams in the latest Alabama Sports Writers Association rankings. The latest poll was released late Tuesday evening.

The only area team to see movement was the Cedar Bluff Tigers (6-2). They moved up a spot to No. 7 in the Class 1A rankings following a 41-12 victory at Jacksonville Christian last Friday.

Cedar Bluff battles third-ranked Spring Garden (8-0) for the Region 6 championship this Friday. The Panthers are coming off a 45-0 homecoming victory over Holy Spirit. It was Spring Garden’s third shutout of the season.

Speaking of region championships, the Piedmont Bulldogs (9-0) won another last Friday with their 45-35 victory at previously unbeaten Ohatchee (7-1). The Bulldogs earned 27 out of 29 first-place votes in this week’s rankings. They will enjoy an off week before closing out the regular season at home against Class 4A Oneonta (3-5) on Oct. 28.

Speaking of Class 4A, the Cherokee County Warriors (7-2) continue to receive votes for the poll. The Warriors have now won seven straight and will battle fifth-ranked Jacksonville (8-0) for the Region 5 title on Friday.

One other area team continues to receive consideration for the poll: Class 2A Sand Rock (6-2). The Wildcats are coming off a 34-0 victory against Collinsville. The win secured a home playoff game. Sand Rock entertains winless Asbury on Friday.

Other area games on the slate this week include Jacksonville Christian (3-5) at Gaylesville (1-7) and Collinsville (4-4) at Section (1-7).

This week’s complete rankings are listed below.
