Gilmer at Dalton fb#1BE8328.jpg

Dalton High School football players huddle around coach Matt Land during the Catamounts’ 31-0 victory against Gilmer two weeks ago at Harmon Field. Below, Northwest Whitfield running back Kyle Fleming scoots past the River Ridge defense during last week’s 54-14 win in Tunnel Hill. Along with Southeast Whitfield, Dalton and Northwest both begin their Sub-region 7B-4A schedules tonight with hopes of earning a place in the state playoffs, which start next month.
