By AccessWDUN Staff | Video by Seth Chapman

DAHLONEGA, Ga. — Darius Cannon provided the fireworks that led to Gainesville's comeback win over North Forsyth last week. 

After North Forsyth extended its lead, 21-7, the senior receiver took the ensuing kickoff 99-yards for a score to pull them back within 21-13 and then ignited the passing game with 121 yards on 5 catches in the second half. Late in the fourth quarter, he turned a short Baxter Wright screen pass into an electrifying 68-yard touchdown to give Gainesville a 27-21 lead with just 4:18 remaining.
