The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - RN-T Sports Editor By Jeremy Stewart

WARNER ROBINS — For all of the added drama that fu­eled Fri­day night’s Class 5A state cham­pi­onship game, it was busi­ness as usual for the Rome Wolves.

A sti­fling de­fense. A pound­ing of­fense. And, for the sec­ond year in a row, a state cham­pi­onship to cel­e­brate. Rome won the night at nearly ev­ery turn against a scram­bling Warner Robins team on the way to a dom­i­nat­ing 38-0 vic­tory in a bat­tle of the un­beat­ens at McCon­nell-Tal­bert Sta­dium.

The win com­pletes the first ever un­de­feated sea­son for Rome High’s foot­ball team and ex­tends its win­ning streak to 27 games dat­ing back to last sea­son when the Wolves won the school’s first ever state ti­tle. It also ends a sea­son that was stretched out a week af­ter the GHSA post­poned last week’s s t at e c ham­pi­onship games at Mercedes-Benz Sta­dium in At­lanta with a win­ter weather sys­tem mov­ing through the city.
