Jeremy Hart missed the game-tying extra point with 24.8 seconds left, allowing Calhoun Falls Charter School to hang on and dash Ware Shoals’ slim Region 1-A title hopes with a 14-13 victory Friday at Tommy Davis Field at Riegel. Calhoun Falls improved to (4-5 overall, 2-0 region) and hosts McCormick (7-2, 2-0) for the Region 1-A crown after the Chiefs dispatched Dixie 34-0. Calhoun Falls coach David Campbell admitted he didn’t think his Blue Flashes would be playing for the region title when the season began. “I told our AD (Friday) morning that I thought we had a very good chance (Friday night). I mean they had a couple of players out, our kids had that motivation we’ve been needing all year, and I felt real good coming into this ballgame,” Campbell said.

The Elbert County 27-26 loss to North Oconee Friday night in the Granite Bowl could have some lasting effects.  Both Blue Devil’s leading rushers sustained injuries that knocked them out of Friday night’s game.  Senior Tyshon Dye appeared to injury his hamstring on his 89 yard touch down run in the third quarter.  His longest run of the season.  Dye returned for 3 plays in the 4th quarter and sustained an ankle injury that sidelined him for the game.  Freshman QB Mecole Hardman left the game late in the 4th quarter after fighting off an ankle sprain but couldn’t overcome a hip flexor.  Both are game time decisions for Friday night.
