ATLANTA — Thousands of Cedartown faithful weathered the elements last Friday and watched their Bulldogs fight for three-and-a-half hours in the rain, pouring down at times.

But despite coming back from down 14-0, the Cedartown High School football team came up just short of a victory in the GHSA Class 4A state championship game. And the heart of a team, and a town, was put out on display.
