It was three years ago that the Banks County Leopards won their last opening game to start football season. However, that game wasn’t nearly as exciting as the game last Friday as Banks County surged over Social Circle for a 40-14 victory.
In what coach Blair Armstrong described as a “great team effort,” the Leopards played as a solid unit on both sides of the ball to rack up more than 400 yards in total offense, while Big Blue held the Redskins to less than 150 yards of total offense, with less than 90-yards in the first half while Banks County jumped out to a 19-0 lead. That was enough of a lead for Banks County to hold out for the victory and to finish strong.
Being able to finish has been a keystone for Armstrong since he took over the Leopards four seasons ago.
