North Gwinnett (13-1) won a back and forth battle with traditional Cobb County powerhouse McEachern (11-3) on Friday night by a 27-21 count to advance to the Class-AAAAAA state championship at the Georgia Dome next Saturday night. The Bulldogs will face Region-7 rival and defending state champion Norcross in search of their first state title. It marks the first time since 2002 that both teams in the finals are from the same region.

North Gwinnett took the opening kickoff and promptly turned the ball over, the first of three in the first half, when quarterback Hayden Sphire threw into coverage and was picked off by Rahmoi Parsons on the Bulldogs first play from scrimmage. Parsons returned the ball to the North 27-yard line and McEachern senior QB Ty Clemons, who shared time with freshman Bailey Hockman, connected with T.J. Rahming on a fade to the right corner of the end zone on their first play from scrimmage to give the home team n early 7-0 advantage.

The C.J. Leggett show began on the Bulldogs second possession. The senior broke a 66-yard run on the second snap, and then finished off the 80-yard drive with a 2-yard burst that evened the score at 7-7 with 9:07 to go in the opening stanza.
