When games are played in a dome, you wouldn’t expect games to be postponed, but that’s what happened to four Georgia high school football championship games scheduled to be played in the Mercedes-Benz Dome on Friday and early Saturday.
The first two games of the championships, in Class A (private) and AAA, were played Friday as scheduled, but the Class AAAAA final between Warner Robins and Rome, ranked No. 83 in the High School Football America Top 100, was postponed, as was the Class AAAAAA final between Coffee and Lee County.

The Georgia High School Association also postponed Saturday’s games between Clinch County and Irwin County for the Class A public-school championship and the AA championship game between Hapeville Charter and Rabun County.

The GHSA said the AAAAAAA championship game between North Gwinnett and Colquitt County and AAAA championship game between Marist and Blessed Trinity will be played as scheduled on Saturday. All four of the teams are ranked in the High School Football America Top 100.
All four of the postponed games will now be played next weekend on campus. The sites will be determined by teams’ seeding or, in the case of opponents having the same seed, a coin flip. Lee County and Irwin County will host in their games based on being the higher seed, while the AAAAA and AA locations will be decided by the coin flip.
