BUTCHER Auctioneer defeat Calhoun A rain-dampened crowd was further dispirited last Friday night a South Harrison defeated Gilmer County High 9-0 in Gilmer's Homecoming game. South Harrison employed a methodical running game to maintain ball control while their defense kept the Titan offense bottled up almost all night. South Harrison got their first scoring opportunity late in the first quarter when Titan Don Wilson fumbled a slippery punt and the visitors recovered on the Titan 29 yard line. Gilmer middle linebacker Randy Miller forced South Harrison to try a field goal when he stopped their fullback dead in his tracks on a third down and four play at the Titan 14 yard line.
