Ethan Fetterman had a 10-yard touchdown grab from David Renard in the back of the end zone with less than a minute left to play, sending Flowery Branch to a 33-28 upset of Mays to open the Class 4A state playoffs Friday in Atlanta. 

After relinquishing a 27-14 lead in the fourth quarter, Renard (152 passing yards, 128 rushing yards) kept the game-winning drive alive with a 20 yard run on fourth and 11. 

Once in Mays territory, Fetterman had a catch at the 20 for the Falcons, then Renard connected with Hayes on a throw to the 10. 

With the win, Flowery Branch advances to face the winner of Hardaway/Perry in the second round on Nov. 19.
