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.
Last Friday, we saw a great state semifinal game between Gainesville and Flowery Branch. I suspected that Gainesville would win, but I knew it would be much closer than the 49-17 game which Gainesville won over the Falcons in the last week of the regular season.

While the Gainesville girls are the defending Lanierland Tournament champions and the No. 2 ranked team in Class AAA, the North Hall girls might be the team to beat in the 50th annual Lanierland Basketball Tournament.
