The lead was short lived as the Braves answered with a 63-yard drive of their own which was finished off when Austin Barron went in from 57 yards out for another touchdown.

After the game Head Coach Allen Sikes had this to say: “We felt like we didn’t play real well against Bremen last week and we challenged our guys to make an impact this week and they answered the call by executing pretty well on both sides of the ball. Next week will be a challenge as we travel to Villa Rica to take on the Wildcats who were in the big school division last year.”

Next week’s game will be held at Villa Rica middle school with kickoff set for 5:00. Best of luck to the middle school Braves as they try to improve to 3-0.
