VALDOSTA 14, ATHENS 13
Date: Dec. 4, 1965
Site: Trojan Field (Athens) no lights at Sanford Stadium
Coaches: Wright Bazemore (Valdosta) and Weyman Sellers (Athens)

SCORING
Valdosta 0-14-0-0 -- 14
Athens 0-0-7-6 -- 13

Second Quarter
Valdosta - Davis 1 run (? kick)
Valdosta - ?
Third Quarter
Athens - Ed Allen 71 run (Perry kick)
Fourth Quarter
Athens - Paul Gilbert 1 run (kick failed)

GAME SUMMARY (from the Valdosta Daily Times)
The score was close and the game had a cliff-hanging finish, but Coach Wright Bazemore's 'Cats left no doubt about which team was superior and that they deserved to wear the state crown.
Coach Weyman Sellers' Trojans had been called by some Georgia's greatest prep eleven. They had swept to the Region 5-AAA and North Georgia AAA titles without a close game. They had clicked off 13 straight wins this year. They had gone two seasons without losing on their home field. They were supposed to waltz past the Wildcats.
But it was Valdosta, which had staged an uphill battle to emerge as the winner in the rough and tumble duel for the Region 1-AAA and South Georgia AAA diadems to get into the state finals, that made Athens dance to its football tune.
It only took Valdosta 4 minutes to go 81 yards in 13 plays for the games first score, with Valdosta's Davis plunging in from 1 yard out. With just over two minutes left before intermission the 'Cats went 69 yards in 9 plays and scored with only 35 seconds remaining.
After Valdosta's Davis came out of the game injured, It only took Athens three plays to score when running back Ed Allen took a pitchout from Athens quarterback and raced 71 yards to paydirt.
After Allen wiggled his way 11 yards to the Valdosta 3 yard line late in the fourth period, a determined Valdosta defense finally gave way and after 4 tries Gilbert finally scored from 1 yard out.
Valdosta had 194 yards rushing and 69 passing. Athens had 117 rushing and 71 passing.

Note: Athen's kicker, Perry, had made 62 of 70 PAT's up to the point of the failed PAT in the 4th quarter.

WEST ROME 6, ST. PIUS 0
Date: Dec. 4, 1965
Site: Grady Stadium (Atlanta)
Coaches: Paul Kennedy (West Rome) and George Maloof (St. Pius)

SCORING
West Rome 0-6-0-0 -- 6
St. Pius 0-0-0-0 -- 0

Second quarter
WR -- Richard Camp xx pass from Mike Souder (kick failed), 5:44

GAME SUMMARY
Mike Souder's long TD pass to Richard Camp in the second quarter held up as West Rome made three defensive stops deep in its territory in the fourth quarter. St. Pius had the edge in first downs 16-5 and total yards 256-130 (according to the Rome Tribune) but lost four fumbles and failed to cash in on several scoring chances. In the fourth quarter alone, St. Pius lost a fumble at the West Rome 10 (recovered by Dale Prater), threw incomplete into the end zone from the West Rome 2 on fourth down and had a pass batted down at the goal line from the West Rome 15 on the game's final play.

(In my haste, I neglected to get the distance of the TD pass, but it was no more than 49 yards and hit Camp in stride at the 5).

GAME SUMMARY

Americus went 45 yards on the first TD drive, with Buck Shiver (11 attempts, 58 yards) scoring from the 3, then 42 on the second, with Bill Chambliss going 3 yards on a screen pass from David Reeves.

Americus' punter, Reeves, was exceptional, averaging 45 yards on 4 punts, putting Commerce at the 6 with a 60-yarder and at the 14 with a 52-yarder.

Bradwell – Bill Stanford 5 run (kick failed)
Third Quarter

Fourth Quarter

GAME SUMMARY
Bradwell’s Phil Lindsey scored the winning touchdown on a one-yard plunge with 4:47 remaining to bring his team from behind. On the game-winning drive, Lindsey converted twice on fourth and one. Manchester’s offense was in high gear in the first. Reporter Hal Hayes noted that Manchester’s deceiving offense looked as if “recess had come and class was out.” Mike Funderburk broke loose on a 58-yard run to give Manchester the early lead. He then put his team up 9-6 in the third with a 34-yard field goal. Lindsey’s heroics brought the home team back. Statistics for the game were almost identical. Manchester led in first downs 10-9 and rushing yardage 207-132. Bradwell, which ran the triple option, led the passing game 85-1 to give the winners a slight 217-208 advantage in total yards. Bradwell’s Candler Boyd (who entered the game with 24 touchdowns) led Bradwell with 68 yards rushing. Funderburk led all rushers with 89 yards.

WARREN COUNTY 19, MONTICELLO 14

Second Quarter
Monticello – Thurmond Willis 3 from Joe Gasses (Larry Taylor kick)
Warren – McTier 27 blocked punt return (run failed)
Third Quarter
Monticello – Atkins 55 from Gasses (Taylor kick)

GAME SUMMARY
After trading punts to start the game, Warren County exploded with two long drives for touchdowns. They first went 90 yards on 8 plays with Mancell McTier covering the last 12. Then, they streaked 81 yards in just 3 plays as Billy Wilhoit broke loose from 47. Monticello cut the margin to 13-7 early in the second as quarterback Joe Gasses took to the air. Just before halftime, McTier crashed through the line to block a Larry Taylor punt as it left his foot, scooped up the ball on the dead run, and ran 27 yards for six. Monticello came back with its passing game after intermission to cut the lead to 5 points. Wilhoit had 145 yards rushing in the first half alone. The difference in the game was Warren County’s running game which outpaced Monticello 222-84.

Ira,

The scoring summary for the 1965 state title game between Valdosta and Athens per the Valdosta Daily Times:

Valdosta: 0-14-0-0
Athens: 0-0-7-6

Second Quarter:
Valdosta - Davis 1 yd run (Colson kick)
Valdosta - Strom 22 yd pass from Davis (Colson kick)
Third Quarter:
Athens - Allen 71 yd run (Perry kick)
Fourth Quarter:
Athens - Gilbert 1 yd run (Perry kick failed)

Note:
Athen's kicker, Perry, had made 62 of 70 PAT's up to the point of the failed PAT in the 4th quarter.

Game Summary
The score was close and the game had a cliff-hanging finish, but Coach Wright Bazemore's 'Cats left no doubt about which team was superior and that they deserved to wear the state crown.
Coach Weyman Sellers' Trojans had been called by some Georgia's greatest prep eleven. They had swept to the Region 5-AAA and North Georgia AAA titles without a close game. They had clicked off 13 straight wins this year. They had gone two seasons without losing on their home field. They were supposed to waltz past the Widcats.
But it was Valdosta, which had staged an uphill battle to emerge as the winner in the rough and tumble duel for the Region 1-AAA and South Georgia AAA diadems to get into the state finals, that made Athens dance to its football tune.
It only took Valdosta 4 minutes to go 81 yards in 13 plays for the games first score, with Valdosta's Davis plunging in from 1 yard out. With just over two minutes left before intermission the 'Cats went 69 yards in 9 plays and scored with only 35 seconds remaining.

After Allen wiggled his way 11 yards to the Valdosta 3 yard line late in the fourth period, a determined Valdosta defense finally gave way and after 4 tries Gilbert finally scored from 1 yard out.
