(Video) FCA All-Star Classic: East shuts down the West to win annual clash

By Bo Wilson Sports Editor

GAINESVILLE – The East cashed in West turnovers to win this year’s FCA East-West All-Star Classic 24-0 at Riverside Military Academy. 

“We are very thankful to be a part of such a great event that brings our community together to recognize our senior football players and cheerleaders,” Greater Hall FCA director Clint Fair said. 

The game didn’t feature a whole lot of offense from either team. The East finished with 143 total yards, and the West, who struggled all day on offense, only mustered 68 total yards. 

Regardless of the total yards, the East outperformed the West on both sides of the ball, including forcing two turnovers and a stifling defense. 

East Hall’s Cambren Harrison, who rushed for 45 yards, put the East on the board first with a freight train run up the gut from 13 yards out in the second quarter. Hayden Killgore's extra point gave the East a 7-0 advantage.

Later in the quarter, Killgore nailed a 28-yard field goal to extend the East lead 10-0. The drive actually started with Jack Dodson (Flowery Branch) fumble recovery, but penalties forced the East to settle for the Killgore FG.

In the second half, Banks County’s Terrance Walker broke free for a 37-yard scamper for a touchdown. Killgore’s extra point pushed the East lead to 17-0.

With the game pretty much on ice for the East, the West tried to heave it downfield for anything. That’s when Flowery Branch’s Zarian Brawner picked off North Hall’s David Seavey and ran for pay dirt. The Killgore PAT sealed the game 24-0.

“We are blessed with amazing sponsors, staff, coaches and many other volunteers that enable us to have this game,” Fair said. “Most importantly, we are thankful God allows us to have this type of platform through the ministry of FCA.”

Gainesville's Quintavious Hayes led the West with 60 yards on the ground.
