Last Friday the Banks County Leopards (3-1, 6-2) felt something that they have only felt one other time this season – the sting of defeat.
Fannin County pulled off a 13-12 win over Banks County. The Rebels now move past the Leopards for the top spot in the sub-region. With Fannin County taking on Union County this week, Banks County is still in a good position for the region play-in game on Nov. 5.
The Leopards have to win this week. Then, if Union County (2-2, 3-5) defeats Fannin County (3-1, 5-3), the Leopards will win the sub-region championship, if Union County fails to upset Fannin County, Banks County will take second and probably wind up facing Hart County in the play-in game.
