Bowen Roberts

Banks County's Bowen Roberts breaks off a run during recent action for the Leopards. The football finishes the 2019 regular season at Elbert County. 

Last season, the Banks County Leopards' playoff hopes ended in Monticello.

On Friday night (Nov. 1) the Leopards may have again seen their playoff hopes go out the window to Monticello as the visiting Hurricanes defeated Banks County 28-0 in Homer. 

Monticello scored 14 first-quarter points and tacked on two more touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters to seal the victory. 

Banks County rushed for 78 yards, led by Corey Vickery's 38 yards. Through the air, the offense amassed 91 yards. Vickery led the receiving corps with 44 yards. 

The Leopards (3-6, 2-4 Region 8-AA) end the regular season this Friday (Nov. 8) at Elbert County (5-4, 4-2). 

This is the fourth meeting between the two programs. The Leopards are 1-2 in the series. 

Elbert County won last season 41-0 and in 2017 43-22. The Leopards' lone win was in 2016, 43-29.
