FLOWERY BRANCH — Jayquan Smith ran for 255 yards and scored four times to lead Cherokee Bluff to a 40-6 win over Gilmer on Friday in both teams’ Region 7-3A openers.
But the game was very much in doubt as the Bears (5-0, 1-0 Region 7-3A) were held to just a pair of Smith touchdown runs of 54 and 20 yards for a slim 13-6 halftime lead.
Bluff exploded in the second half, and so did Smith in a massive second-half performance.
