The Buford Wolves are made for the playoffs as 11 state titles since 2001 would attest. That experience helped them against a game Carrollton Trojans club that wouldn’t back down as the Wolves made just enough plays in the second half to pull out a 34-27 win Friday in the quarterfinal round of the Class AAAAA playoffs at Tom Riden Stadium. Christian Turner’s 250 yards on 15 carries led the second-ranked Wolves (12-1) as he exploded for touchdown runs of 63 and 89 yards in the first half, and 26 and 31 in the second half.
