Down at Newton (Ga.), three-star defensive tackle Darnell Jefferies posted a tackle for loss among a couple stops, with a fumble recovery, in a 47-28 win over Peachtree Ridge (Ga.).

Newton moved to 3-0, Jefferies improving his total to eight tackles for loss on the season.

Justin Mascoll – 4-star South Gwinnett (GA) DE

Mascoll posted five tackles in a tough night overall for South Gwinnett, which dropped to 1-3 with a 30-23 loss to South Forsyth.
