THOMASVILLE -- Coming off of a convincing win over Sherwood Academy, coach Shane Boggs and his Brookwood Warriors came up jut a little short in their attempt extend their winning streak to three games, falling to the Fullington Trojans in GISA Region 3-AA action Friday night.

It took only twelve seconds for the Warriors to draw blood as Cameron Reed took the opening kickoff and carried it 82 yards for a score.
