The Winder-Barrow High School football team was so close to victory Friday night it could almost taste it.
Suddenly, the game and a win, were torn away by the Heritage Patriots who left a home crowd going chaotic and the visiting Bulldoggs as stunned as they have been all season.
Heritage took a 14-13 overtime win after trailing through the contest. Going into the game, on paper at least, the Patriots were the heavy favorite as they are in the middle of the playoff chase. However, it was WBHS who played inspired football all night and just missed its first victory of 2010.
