By staff reports
SOCIAL CIRCLE For the first time since George Bush was president Union County will be playing in the postseason.
The Panthers clinched a spot in the Class AA playoffs Friday night with a 47-6 win over Social Circle in Region 8-AA action.
It will be the first postseason appearance for Union County (6-3, 4-2 Region 8-AA) since 2001.
Quarterback Joseph Mancuso led the charge accounting for five touchdowns. He was 24-of-30 for 340 yards and three touchdowns passing and ran for two more scores.
Union County coach Brian Allison was more than ecstatic after the victory.
It's awesome, he said. We've been working to this and now it's here and it's just awesome. I think the kids are ready for it and we're all excited what the future holds.
The Panthers will close out the regular season next week against Jefferson in Blairsville and can finish second with a win and a Rabun County loss.
