The Peach County Trojans came up a little short on their championship quest Saturday. The Trojans lost in the AAA state title to the Burke County Bears, 28 - 14.
Peach County jumped out to a 14-6 at halftime lead after quarterback Kentel Kendrick pushed his way into the endzone from the one in the first quarter. Then later in the second, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson added to the Trojan lead with a 21 yard Touchdown catch.
Burke mounted a powerful second half comeback though, with drives of 79 and 77 yards in the third quarter to take the lead. Burke relied on their strong running game to edge out Peach for the win.
