CALHOUN, Ga. (WRCB) -- Some of the powerhouses in North Georgia met on the football field this week for Friday Night Football. It's high school rivalry at its finest with Calhoun hosting Dalton, and it would be a fight to the finish on the field.

Calhoun answers right back, and they don't waste any time. Keep your eye on Da'rick Rogers. He's off to the races leaving several Catamounts chasing after him. He takes the ball more than 80 yards down the field and doesn't stop until he reaches the end zone. With the extra point, it's 14-7 Calhoun.
Moving to the second quarter Dalton stays right with the Yellow Jackets. Shaquan Moore punches the ball in for the score to tie it right back at 14 giving the Catamounts something to cheer about.
Just before the half, Calhoun would kick a 20-yard field goal to make it 17-14 Calhoun. Making fans really show their black and gold pride. And the final, Calhoun wins a close one 31-28 over Dalton.
