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.
