JEFFERSON — In what was a much-anticipated week 2 matchup between the Jefferson Dragons and Winder-Barrow Bulldoggs, the Dragons pulled away late in the fourth quarter to win 32-17 behind running back Colby Wood’s five touchdowns.
Wood carried the ball 31 times for 239 yards and four rushing touchdowns for the Dragons (2-0). He also caught a touchdown.
Winder-Barrow’s CeCe Green led the Bulldoggs (0-1) with 154 yards on 20 attempts and scored once.
Jefferson scored the last 18 points of the game and held the Bulldoggs to 18 total yards of offense from that point on.
“I’m proud of the way the guys responded when they had their backs against the wall,” Jefferson head coach Ben Hall said. “We’re a young football team and mistakes are going to happen.
"We will continue to improve and that says a lot about the team we have.”
