The Banks County High School football team gave Jefferson its toughest challenge of the 2008 season Friday night. In the end, however, the Dragons survived its first true test and remained undefeated with a 34-22 win.
BCHS pulled to within 28-22 with 5:13 left following a 63-yard run by Justin Beasley. Jefferson, however, was able to answer and sealed the win with a touchdown with 1:00 left.
The Leopards will host Fannin County this Friday at 7:30 p.m. for Senior Night. See Thursday's edition of The Banks County News for a complete recap of the Jefferson contest and a preview of the Region 8-AA showdown with Fannin County.
