SUWANEE, GA -- With 46.9 percent of the online vote, Hiram at Lambert is 11Alive and Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Game of the Week. And now that the postseason has started, the stakes are higher than ever.

Hiram and Lambert are both relatively new schools. Hiram's football program kicked things off in 2000 and the 8-2 Hornets are in the playoffs for the second year in a row. Lambert, only in its first full year of varsity play, is also 8-2 and looking to make a splash in the postseason.

Hiram has given up more points than Lambert this season, but the Hornets have also scored more points.
