• Milton battles Etowah on Thursday night

    By: Michael Carvell/AJC.com


    Milton High School coach Howie DeCristofaro will have a reunion with one of his former teams on Thursday.

    Milton (4-1) plays at Etowah (3-2) at 7:30 p.m.

    DeCristofaro was Etowah’s defensive line coach for the 2007 and 2008 seasons.

    It’s a big game between the two teams for other reasons.

    “If we win, we go 3-0 in the region,” DeCristofaro told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Michael Carvell. “Walton and Lassiter play Friday night, and one of them is going to be 3-0 and one of them is going to 2-1. So the significance is if we win, we’re at least tied atop the region standings. That’s the big part of it.”

    Tonight’s game will be televised live on WSB-TV/Me-TV 2.2, which can be found on the following cable systems by channel number: Comcast 248 (Metro Atlanta, Calhoun, Rome), Charter 126 (Metro Atlanta, Athens), Windstream 871 (Dahlonega, Hiawassee, Cornelia, Commerce), ETC 190 (Ellijay, Cherokee, Pickens, Gilmer, Fannin), Plantation 601 (Green, Putnam) and Knology 168 (West Point).
