It's ironic that the last time Bainbridge's Damien Bouie was handing the ball off to Mike Stubbs was earlier this year in this Sept. 14 file photo when Bouie, a running back, was forced under center because of an injury to the quarterback. Bouie shined that night, leading the Bearcats to a 14-12 win, and when the same situation occurred Friday against Lee County, Bouie did it again, only this time Stubbs scored the game-winning touchdown to lift The Herald No. 2 Bearcats past No. 1 Lee County, 49-42.

In what may go down as one of the most thrilling games in Southwest Georgia high school football history, Herald No. 2-ranked Bainbridge charges out to a 35-point lead Friday at home, then has to hold off a wild comeback by No. 1 Lee County to win, 49-42, in a barnburner for the ages.
