For the second straight year, homefield advantage and a higher seeding didn't provide any help for Flowery Branch.
Last season, Hall County's two newest schools celebrated their 10-year anniversaries by both hosting first-round state playoff football games.

No one just forgets about a one-point loss when it costs them a region title. Even Gainesville, which won the Class AAAAA state championship last year after experiencing that setback, still hasn't forgotten how it went down after falling 35-34 in the 8-AAAAA title game on the final night of the regular season at Falcon Field in 2012.

MONROE – For the second straight year, the Region 8-AAAA title will remain narrowly out of reach of Chestatee.
Chestatee is acting like nothing out of the ordinary happened to Monroe Area last Friday.

Throw in Blake Buffington's 75-yard kickoff return ...
West Hall is beginning to look familiar to North Hall coach Bob Christmas. The Spartans remind him a lot of his own Trojans and the turnaround they made from 2001 to 2002, bouncing back from a 1-9 season - and decades of overall struggles - to deliver an 8-3 campaign that kick-started the elevation of the program to the state-ranked Class AAA force it is today. "West Hall has some very good players, and even ...
All it took was one upset to alter the Region 7-AAA playoff picture. With White County's 21-7 stunning of No. 4 North Hall on Friday, paired with West Hall's 27-7 win over East Hall, a three-way tie for second place in the region has developed. The Warriors, the Trojans and the Spartans all sit at 3-1 in region play. By virtue, White County (5-2) is currently in the best position, having defeated one of the ...
