DAWSONVILLE — Friday night’s game between Forsyth Central and Dawson County ended with the Bulldogs behind 14-9 with 3:54 left in the second quarter as the officials called for a 15-minute lightning delay that turned into a 2-hour delay that turned into a “no-contest.” This means, by every definition, the game didn’t even happen. In those 26 minutes, Central had to face a run-heavy Dawson team that ran the ball 21 times for 127 yards and a touchdown, led by senior running back Taylor Cronan (67 yards) and junior quarterback Coey Watson (51 yards).
