The Indians trailed in the 2nd half 29-13 but a Javon Gordon 8-yd touchdown run and the 2nd touchdown pass from Tripp Underwood to Jasec Smith led to Waters heroics. Underwood and Smith also connected on a 2-pt conversion that pulled the Indians with one at 29-28.
Habersham Central’s Carson Parker and Zeke Whittington also connected on two touchdown passes in each half.
Stephens County will host Rabun County in the home opener next Friday.
