ATLANTA - Throughout their run to the state championship game, the top-ranked Gainesville Red Elephants used a strong running game to control the game clock and set up big plays for the passing game, but Peach County prevented that from happening.After averaging 256 yards rushing in its past two games, Gainesville was held to just 77 yards rushing on 23 attempts, and its two leading rushers (Blake Sims and Teryan Rucker) averaged less than 4 yards per carry.

West Hall built a 13-7 lead in the first quarter they never relinquished on their way to a 49-41 win over Flowery Branch on Friday night in the boys' consolation game of Lanierland at Flowery Branch High.
It's not often in a season that a running back lines up under center and throws for 263 yards and three touchdowns, has 14 receptions for 150 yards and four touchdowns and still manages to carry the ball 481 yards for 11 touchdowns.
