CUMMING -- Flowery Branch couldn't dig out of an early hole on Friday, as West Forsyth held off the Falcons for a 21-14 win in Cumming.
Flowery Branch (0-2) trailed 14-0 after the first quarter, pulling within a touchdown with three minutes to play but couldn't complete the comeback.
Justin Curry paced the Falcons attack with 19 carries for 116 yards rushing and a touchdown in the loss, while Jackson McDonald completed 9 of 15 passes for 86 yards. Jamaad Stephens caught two passes for 53 yards, while Cameron Davis had four catches for 17 yards.
West Forsyth (2-0) rolled up a balanced 374 yards -- 185 on the ground and 189 through the air.
Noel Padmore racked up six solo tackles for the Falcons defense.
Flowery Branch will look to bounce back from the loss when Region 8-AAAAA play begins next week when the Falcons travel to face Cedar Shoals in Athens.
