The Gilmer Bobcats have had a rough start to their region schedule this year, but they finally got things to click on Friday night against West Hall. The 26-21 victory was the first Region 7AAA win for the Bobcats this year, and the first Region 7AAA win for first year Gilmer Head Coach Paul Standard.

The “Cardiac Cats” gave everyone in Ellijay a heart attack on Friday night, but they were able to pull off the victory at the buzzer. The Bobcats took the lead with less than a minute left in the ballgame thanks to a Seth Darling touchdown, but West Hall made every second count. West Hall quarterback Nick Sturm heaved a Hail Mary pass into the endzone that was caught for the game winning touchdown, but there was a flag on the play and the touchdown was taken off the board. Gilmer would go on to stop West Hall on the next play and come away with a 26-21 victory.
