ICYMI: FGN Week 11 wrap — Five area teams claim region crowns

By AccessWDUN Staff

Buford, Dawson County, Gainesville, Jefferson, and Rabun County all captured region titles in huge games around the Northeast Georgia area Friday night.

Buford whipped Mountain View, 56-7, to win the Region 8-7A crown. Gainesville held off North Forsyth, 34-21, at City Park to claim the 8-6A title, while Jefferson routed Heritage-Conyers, 49-6, to win the Region 8-5A title. Rabun County won its ninth-straight region title, the first in Region 8-A Division 1, with a thrilling 27-22 win over Commerce at home.

Dawson County won the 7-3A title with a big 38-10 win over arch-rival Lumpkin County at The Burial Grounds. Also in 7-3A, Pickens eliminated White County from playoff contention with a 48-28 win, giving Lumpkin County a bid into the playoffs in the process.

8-4A playoff hopefuls North Hall and East Forsyth saw their chances of advancing take a blow as the Trojans fell to Cedar Shoals, 28-14, while Chestatee took down East Forsyth, 32-28, at War Eagle Stadium.

Union County's bid to play for the Region 8-2A title, however, was ended with a 38-7 loss to Athens Academy on the road. The Panthers, however, secured a playoff spot with Banks County's 42-7 loss to Fellowship Christian. Meanwhile, East Jackson secured its first playoff berth since 2009 with a 41-34 win over Providence Christian.
