Tonight the South Fulton Rebels hosted the North Fulton Wildcats for Homecoming. Both teams came out looking like there was a lot of energy in both and South Fulton especially showed a lot of energy and looked to try and make North Fulton really fight for this one.  North Fulton got on the board early with a pass from McCabe to Coufal to make it 6-0.  Then South Fulton got their first chance on offense of the evening and after an incomplete pass, that could have resulted in a huge play, the next snap to Kessler was wild and resulted in a fumble recovery for the Wildcats.  North Fulton was able to score on the ensuing drive but South Fulton did not look like a team ready to give up.  The Rebels kept trying to go to the air but they just came up a bit short each time.  In the second quarter North Fulton was able to find the end zone 4 different times in a period of about 2 minutes of clock and they also recovered a squib kick that South Fulton froze up on.  In the second half the Rebels came out with some new life and were able to put a couple of scoring drives together before the final horn.  North Fulton won this one 54-14.  The Wildcats ended the night with 162 yards of rushing and 85 yards through the air.  Their biggest downfall tonight was the 11 penalties for 80 yards.  Justin Higgins carried the ball 10 times for 65 yards tonight while Travis Windsor had 46 yards of receiving.  For South Fulton, they finished the night with 93 yards of rushing and 122 yards through the air.  The Rebels were able to keep the penalties to a minimum with just 3 penalties for a total of 15 yards.  Joey Hamm had 5 carries for 49 yards this evening while Bryar Anderson had 57 yards of receiving.  North Fulton improves to 5-1 (3-0) on the season and gains playoff eligibility while South Fulton falls to 0-6 (0-3) on the season.  I also want to mention that the game between these two schools is working to become known as the Blackout Game and they want to use it as a chance to help out a charity.  This year Easter Seals was the charity and the students from South Fulton were able to raise $600!
