PATRIOTS FALL TO BUFORD 54-23
The Paulding County Patriots were ecstatic to just make the playoffs, it was their first appearance in the postseason in ten years and although a brief one they acquitted themselves well. The Patriots had the unfortunate luck to draw the Buford Wolves in the first round, a program rich in tradition and championships. Since 2000 the Wolves have garnered 10 State Titles. The Patriots embraced the opportunity and played their hearts out while emptying the playbook and letting the Wolves know they were in for a battle. The final score of 54-23 was not indicative of the effort that the Patriots put forth, especially on offense. The Patriots just could not stop the Wolves offense that ran and passed the ball successfully all night. Congratulations to the Patriots and the coaching staff on a successful season and hopefully much more to come.
