“#Dragonsneverdie” the banner read at Jefferson Memorial Stadium. That was right before the Dragons ripped through it Friday night as they took on the Winder-Barrow Bulldoggs for the second game of the season.

It might have been Brandon Worley’s first night as a head football coach, but if Jackson County’s second-half scoring output is any indication, he may have mastered the art of the halftime speech.

The much anticipated rematch between Winder-Barrow High School and Jefferson High School Friday night once again went in favor of the Dragons.
Jefferson (2-0) took a 32-17 win, spoiling the 2015 debut for the Bulldoggs. While the game was certainly closer than last season's 41-7 win by Jefferson, WBHS faithful had hoped for a win to start the new season.
The Bulldoggs did lead 17-14 in second half, but the host Dragons would score the game's final 18 points for the win.
WBHS (0-1) will travel to Apalachee High School next Friday for the Region 8-AAAAA opener.

Bethlehem Christian Academy had its share of chances Friday night but in the end saw visiting Piedmont Academy take a 28-7 win in the first on-campus game played in school history by the Knights.
Trailing 14-7 at halftime, BCA (0-2) had two chances at the start of the second half to tie the game or even move in front but was unable to finish drives. Even the end of the first half saw BCA at the Piedmont 1-yard line as time expired.
The matchup between the teams was a great deal closer than 2014's 77-0 score in favor of Piedmont, but Knights coach Lance Fendley isn't one for moral victories.
"We just have to do a better job on offense," Fendley said. "Our defense played well tonight after our offense kept putting them against the wall. That's not how we are going to win. We have to be able to put points on the scoreboard."
