Georgetown High dominated Andrews and rolled to a 44-0 victory last week.
Georgetown had 430 yards on 64 plays and picked up 25 first downs. Of the Bulldogs' 10 possessions, five ended in a touchdown or field goal.
Andrews had 153 yards on 37 plays and eight first downs. Of the Yellow Jackets' 10 possessions, eight had three plays or less, and three ended in turnovers.
The Andrews defense started strong, forcing a punt and an interception on Georgetown's first two possessions.
"We came out a little bit sluggish, they gave us a different look than what we were expecting. They had a little bit different game plan for us," Bulldogs coach Bradley Adams said. "Once we figured out what they were doing we were able to get things going a little bit, kind of got them back to what we've been game planning for."
Georgetown finally got on the board first with 2:50 left in the first quarter when Caleb Hughes hit Michael Billings from 12 yards out.
The Bulldogs then put the game out of reach in the second quarter with rushing touchdowns from Hughes (eight yards), Julian Lunsford (six yards), and Jordan Ward (48 yards) and a 35-yard field goal from Jackson Britt.
Lunsford added a two-yard touchdown in the third quarter and Michael Billings wrapped up the scoring with a two-yard score in the fourth.
Britt was 5-for-5 on extra points.
