Here is Ben Groce and Jeremy Burke with the wrap up from Schley County last night:

Ben Poplin has the final word from Rabun County last night:

Nevertheless, last night punctuates strong seasons for both teams.Both teams won effectively all of their rivalry games, and they played consistently throughout the whole season.
