There have been plenty of offensive fireworks and heart-pounding finishes in recent years when the football teams for Apalachee High School and Loganville High School meet.
Last Friday was no exception as the Wildcats rallied for a 35-28 win putting AHS in the victory column for the first time in Region 8-AAAAA play in 2012. Trailing 28-21 at halftime, the Wildcats put two scores on the board in the second half and kept the Loganville offense out of the end zone.
“We had a great offensive night,” AHS coach Shane Davis said. “Hats off to our kids on that side of the football. I thought (offensive coordinator) Joel (Miller) called a great game. We were very patient. Sometimes you get to a point where you feel like you need to make something big happen. However, when you continue to get first downs then you have to realize what you are doing is working.”
