With the Ram faithful still celebrating the score, the Hornets offense took the field and completed passes of 30 and 35 yards, the last of which was a touchdown and came with 10 ticks of the clock left, en route to a 30-26 win that brought the Grayson season to a sudden end.

Colquitt County (14-0) traveled to Hoschton to take on Mill Creek (13-1) in the semifinal round of the Georgia High School Association football playoffs in a game that matched a Packers offense that averaged more than 47 points a game this season against a Hawk defense that allowed just 6.8. After 48 minutes of play, Colquitt County headed home with an impressive 52-31 win that sends the Packers back to the Georgia Dome to defend the AAAAAA state title they won last year by defeating Archer, another Gwinnett County team.
