Last Friday night was one for the history books as Banks County recorded its first win over East Hall. The Leopards won 53-28 over the Vikings in a big sub-region victory which opens the door for Banks County to earn the fourth seed in 8-AA.
With only one loss in sub-region play, Banks County (4-1,7-2) battles this week for the fourth seed and a possible long-shot at the third seed. This Friday night, the Leopards head to Hart County (4-2,5-3-1) to take on the Bulldogs. A Banks County victory sends the boys onto the postseason, but in what position is determined by a different region play.
North Oconee takes on Dawson County. If Dawson pulls off the upset, Banks County will head to the playoffs as the number three seed, if Banks County wins, and Dawson loses, the Leopards are the number four seed. Dawson County has already pulled one surprise victory this season over Fannin County. The Tigers are outmatched on paper against the Titans, but it’s not over until the end of the fourth quarter Friday night.
