MACON – The Paladins’ historic ended Friday on the road in the quarterfinals of the Class 1A state playoffs.
Pinecrest had been something of a road-warrior team. The Paladins earned victories on the road against No. 1-seeded Darlington in Rome and No. 2-seeded Savannah Christian in Savannah. They faced another road trip against undefeated and No. 2-ranked First Presbyterian (21-0-0) to Macon.
But Pinecrest couldn’t find the back of the net Friday. They finished the season 12-9-0 with their first state quarterfinals appearance since joining the GHSA.
