North Georgia Falcons win 2009 GFC Championship!!

In the football world, there is a saying that is often used at the end of a game, “the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat”. The Glory For Christ Championship Game between the North Georgia Falcons and the Christian Heritage Lions was played in a beautiful stadium on a absolutely beautiful day and both teams had shining moments throughout the game. It was something special to behold as both teams played their hearts out and it is really unfortunate that one team came out on the short end of the score. In a game of this magnitude, the championship game, there will be the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.

North Georgia took the opening kickoff at the 22 yard line. Eleven plays later the Lions defense held on 4th down at the 32 yard line, taking over for the first time after the Falcons had the ball for almost 8 minutes. It only took Christian Heritage 3 plays to go 68 yards and a touchdown as QB Daniel Pierce connected with Mason Sikes who had gotten behind the Falcons defense. The extra point kick by Pierce was good and at 3:55 left in the first quarter Christian Heritage led 7-0.

The Falcons went 3 and out on their next possession and kick to the Lions. The Lions took over at the 19 yard line. Five plays later they punted and the Falcons took over at their own 35. Using a combination of passes and runs the Falcons moved to the Lions 35, then Tim Howard found his favorite receiver, Riley Davis, with a pass and Davis took it to the house (end zone) for a 35 yard TD. The extra point kick was blocked, leaving the Lions in the lead, 7 to 6, with 6:31 left in the 2nd quarter.

Christian Heritage went 3 plays and then punted to the Falcons 47. Howard went to work again as he connected on 5 passes, the last going 8 yards to Elijah Hiers for the score with 56 seconds left in the first half. Kicker Brett Snyder was good on the extra point kick and the Falcons had the lead at 13-7.

With less than a minute left in the half, the Lions moved the ball from the 27 all the way to the 7 yard line, however, the clock ran out before the Lions could get off another play. Halftime score: North Georgia 12 Christian Heritage 7.

The Lions took the second half kickoff, but could not get anything going and had to punt. The Falcons then ran 3 plays and had to punt which only went about 15 yards giving the Lions good field position at the 32 yard line. On the second play, Drew Lee of the Falcons recovered a Lions fumble at the 30 yard line. The Falcons marched down the field on 9 plays with a mixture of passes and runs, however, they stalled at the 30 yard line and on 4th down the Falcons lined up for a field goal. Kicker Brett Snyder then booted a 46 yard field goal to give the Falcons a 16 to 7 lead with 49 seconds left in the 3rd quarter.

Both teams then traded possessions with neither team able to do much. Then the Lions took over at the 8 yard line and using the passing arm of Daniel Pierce connected on six passes, finding Ethan Turnmire for the TD of 29 yards. Daniel Pierce kick was good and the Lions were back in the game but still behind 16-14 with 3:36 left in the game.

After kicking off to the Falcons, the Lions defense bowed up and stopped the Falcons on 3 plays. The Falcons lined up to punt, but attempted a fake punt which the Lions were able to stop the Falcons short of a first down at the 43. The Lions took over and on first down, Pierce found Mason Sikes at the Falcons 11 yard line for a first down. The Falcons stopped RB Terrell Wison after a 3 yard gain, then Pierce tried a QB sneak that took it down to the 2 yard line, however, time was running down. The Lions decided to go for the win with a field goal, however, a bad snap was recovered by the Drew Lee of the Falcons, giving them the victory and the Glory For Christ Championship 16-14 over the Christian Heritage Lions.

The Falcons celebrated the thrill of being victorius while the Lions dealt with the agony of defeat after coming so close to the victory. It’s been a great season for both teams and nothing should take that joy away from either of these two team!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

GFC Semifinal: North Georgia beats Force 7-0 (2 OT) to reach GFC Championship game

In a great defensive battle between two of the top teams, the North Georgia Falcons beat the Georgia Force in 2 overtimes by the score of 7-0. The Force played most of the game without starting quarterback Matt Hardin, who was injured in the second quarter. Neither team seemed to be able to get untracked offensively because of the tough defense that was being played. The Falcons came up with an interception by Riley Davis near the goal line to stop the best Force drive of the day. Christian Jones had another interception to stop another drive. It was also Jones who intercepted a pass in the first overtime to stop the Force.

The Force defense kept the Falcons offense in check all day as well. In the first overtime, the Falcons tried a field goal which was wide right. However, in the second overtime, on 3rd and 6 from the 14, Tim Howard connected with Riley Davis for the Falcons touchdown. Brett Snyder added the extra point to make it 7-0. The Force took over and drove down the field, however, on 4th on 5 from the 7 yard line they came up short by about a foot so the Falcons won the game and moved into the Championship where they will play the Christian Heritage Lions on Saturday, Nov 14th at 2:00 at Riverwood High Stadium in Sandy Springs.
