Senior running back Joseph Douglas scored 3 touchdowns, and the defense did the rest as Aquinas topped Washington-Wilkes 24-8 Friday to claim first place in the class A, region 7B standings.

The Irish defense held the Tigers scoreless through 3 quarters. And it seemed like every time their fans who travelled from Augusta screamed for a big stop on 3rd and 4th down, coach James Leonard's team gave them what they wanted.
3rd down stops; Lowery’s interception; Welch’s forced fumble... the @IrishNationAHS defense came through all night in 24-8 win at W-Wilkes pic.twitter.com/VbGNsWYxb3— Chad Cook's AugBball (@AugBball) October 21, 2017
Friday's win was the fifth straight for the Fighting Irish. All that stands between Aquinas (6-2, 4-0) and a perfect region record is next week's stop at rival Lincoln County (4-4, 3-1). The Red Devils have won 3 straight games.
