The Apalachee High School football team played perhaps their best half of the season Friday night against Flowery Branch. In the end, however, that strong first-half effort wasn’t quite enough to lift the Wildcats to a victory as the Falcons rallied for a 30-20 victory at R. Harold Harrison Stadium.
AHS (1-4 overall, 0-3 in Region 8-AAAAA) jumped out to a 14-3 halftime lead before Flowery Branch was able to regroup. The Falcons remain perfect in region play at 4-0 (4-2 overall).
“I was proud of the fact we fought hard,” said Wildcat coach Shane Davis. “We had a lull to start the third quarter and part of that was because of what Flowery Branch did. They had two short fields to start the second half and they ran right at us. That set for the tone for the third and fourth quarters.”
