Unbeaten Patriots pile up yards, points against FCS


Gladiators can’t hold early lead JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – In search of their first win of the season, the Johns Creek Gladiators led North Forsyth 21-0 in the first half, but the Raiders scored the game’s last 38 points to score a 38-21 victory Friday night, Nov. 1. Chase Solomon passed for 195 yards and a touchdown for the Gladiators, and Enoch Webb rushed for 90 yards and two TDs as the Gladiators led 21-0 late in the second period. But the Raiders scored a touchdown in the final 40 seconds of the first half, and clamped down on the Johns Creek offense in the second half. Johns Creek (0-6 in Region 6-AAAAAA, 0-9 overall) closes out its season Friday at region champion Alpharetta (6-0, 7-2). – Mike Blum

Hunter Bryant passed for 238 yards and two touchdowns for the Paladins, 2-3 in the sub-region and 5-4 overall. Jack Wise caught a 70-yard pass from Bryant in the opening period, and Ryan Reid had a 15-yard TD reception late in the game. The Paladins play at home Friday against Christian Heritage, which defeated Fellowship 41-0 in September. The Lions were second in the opposite sub-region at 3-1 and are 7-2 overall. – Mike Blum

Continued from Page 22 year before the Raiders rallied. “We let them come back,” Davenport said. “It should not have come down to the last play.” The main challenge for the Titans will be to stop Riverwood’s option offense, led by Grant Drakeford, a dangerous running threat at quarterback. Lineman Max Ovrick, who was out for the first Riverwood game, will be back in the lineup Friday, which should make the Titans’ defensive task less daunting. A victory over the Raiders would give Northview its first-ever state playoff berth and ensure the Titans their first winning season. The No. 1 team from 5-AAAAA, likely North Paulding, would be the Titans’ state playoff opponent if they defeat Riverwood.

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Mount Pisgah Patriots protected their standing as the No. 1 team in the state Class A private school power rankings, rolling past Fellowship Christian 50-21 at home last Friday night, Nov. 1, to improve their record to 9-0. The win gave the Patriots a 6-A sub-region title, but the team will not have the chance to play for a region championship, as the two subregion champions will play the No. 4 teams from the opposite sub-region in this week’s crossover games. The Patriots will play Mount Zion (Carrollton), which finished fourth out of five teams in its sub-region. Mount Zion went 1-3 in the subregion and is 4-5 overall, with the Eagles’ four wins coming against teams with a combined six victories. Mount Pisgah amassed 534 yards total offense against Fellowship, taking a 36-14 halftime lead. Browning Dunn scored three of the Patriots’ five first-half touchdowns, two on runs of 31 and 30 yards. He also scored his team’s first TD on a short run after a fumble by the Paladins. Dunn gained 88 yards on just six carries and caught one pass for 37 yards. A 66-yard pass from Aaron Winchester to Oz Dixon wrapped up the Patriots’ first-half scoring. Winchester completed 13 of 22 passes for 188 yards, including a 7-yard pass to Dixon for the first score of the second half. The final Mount Pisgah score came on a 66-
