Week 2: Statements made, as Buford, North Hall, Jefferson dominate

Buford let loose months of frustration on Friday night, while North Hall, Jefferson, Stephens County, White County, Rabun County and North Forsyth all dominated in big Week 2 victories.

The Wolves led the way with some cold revenge over Gainesville in a battle of state champs, as Buford raced to a 17-0 lead and never let the Red Elephants develop a rhythm in a 38-14 win at City Park.

Meanwhile, North Hall ran wild in the second half on Johnson, 63-6 in Oakwood, while Jefferson crushed neighbor and rival Jackson County, 49-0. North Forsyth also halted Dawson County's two-game win streak, 31-0, and is now 2-0 itself. And White County rolled up 372 yards in a 31-0 win over rival Lumpkin County.

There were also some thrilling fights to the finish, including at Chestatee, where the War Eagles' used a fourth quarter two-point conversion to make the difference in a 15-14 win over West Hall. The Spartans just missed a last-gasp field goal that would have cinched a victory.

Commerce also battled back for its first win, scoring 19 fourth quarter points to down East Jackson 19-7.

Fannin County also fought past Union County in a wild contest, cradling an onside kick attempt to seal 43-35 victory.

Stephens County also moved to 2-0 with a lopsided 49-14 defeat of old rival Habersham Central.

In, Flowery Branch, West Forsyth dealt the Falcons a tough, 35-21 defeat -- it was the same position the Branch found itself in last season (0-2), before going on to win the Region 8-AAAAA crown.
