Fannin County defeated Rival Gilmer in front of a big crowd last Friday night on their home turf. The Rebels have won 5 of their last 6 against Gilmer, not including the 2020 and 2021 games that were not played due to Gilmer cancellations. 

1st Quarter

Fannin County had a statement drive to start the game. Lawson Sullivan found paydirt to give the Rebels a 7-0 lead to open things up, and on the next drive, the Rebel Defense forced Gilmer to go 3 and out. Elijah Weaver made a crucial stop on the edge for the Rebels.  The Punter for Gilmer fielded a low snap and punted the ball away, however, before he punted the ball his knee was down at the 1-yard line. Fannin would take over on the Gilmer 1-yard line, leading to Carson Callihan’s 1st Touchdown of the year. Matthew Ponton would nail the extra point giving the Rebels the lead 14-0 early in 1st.
