HALL COUNTY, Ga. - East Hall principal Jeff Cooper can’t remember the last time the Vikings hosted a playoff game, but he thinks it was 2003 (actually 2000). Well that should tell you that this is a big deal to the folks in Gainesville. Coach Bryan Gray’s team has won five straight games after starting the season 1-4.
Sonoraville doesn’t have much experience in the postseason either. The Calhoun area school is only 10 years old. The Phoenix were beaten last season in the only playoff appearance in school history.
Sonoraville could actually be a road favorite in this one, having played close games with the exception of a blowout loss to perennial power Calhoun.
