Alpharetta vs North Cobb Football

I photographed Alpharetta and North Cobb take each other on for the football season opener for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday, August 26, 2011. Alpharetta took the reigns early and by halftime the Raiders lead the Warriors by two touchdowns. North Cobb battled back during the third and fourth quarters to surpass Alpharetta’s score but the Raiders answered back with 13 seconds left to win the game 29-26. These are my favorite images from the game.
