Lanierland: Smith scores 46, War Eagles win

OAKWOOD - Parker Smith came into Saturday night's game hoping to prove that the Chestatee High basketball team could play with anybody.

State playoffs: Trojans' dream season ends

ATLANTA - A teary locker room momentarily overshadowed a season's worth of accomplishments for North Hall following a 42-21 loss to Cairo in the Class AAA semifinals Saturday at the Georgia Dome. The loss brought an end to a season of firsts in school history, most notably the first appearance playing in the state semifinals and single-season record 13 wins.

The Trojans (13-1) were hoping for a shot at their first football state title in school history. But the dazzling speed of the Syrupmakers (13-1) brought a sudden end to those dreams with 35 third quarter points.

Football: From the Brickyard to the Dome: A look back at North Hall's journey

It can be hard for a season to parallel expectations going into the season. There are often times too many unexpected variables, such as injuries, intersquad discontent and player misconduct, that can sideline a season with previously high expectations.

North Hall football coach Bob Christmas didn't want to turn a blind-eye to the possibility of adversity to an otherwise talented team when the season began.
