"West Hall has some very good players, and even ...

BUFORD - What a difference a half makes.
CLARKSTON – It shouldn't have ended this way.
CLARKSTON - Gainesville stood toe to toe with Tucker for most of the night in the Class AAAAA state semifinals on Friday at Hallford Stadium in Clarkston. What kept it close was the Red Elephants' remarkable defense for most of the night against the Tigers' vaunted running game.
