Social Circle head football coach Rob Patton talks with an official before a high school football game against Greene County High School on Nov. 20, 2020.

COMMERCE — Social Circle got an old monkey off its back Friday night as the Redskins defeated Commerce 28-19 in a key Region 8-A Public high school football game at Tiger Field at Ray Lamb Stadium.

Friday marked the first time Social Circle (4-4, 1-2) had ever won in Commerce and it snapped a nine-game winning streak the Tigers (5-3, 2-1) held, dating back to 2005, when the Redskins won 31-21 at home. Commerce holds a 16-3 all-time edge over Social Circle, dating back to 1986.
