MONTEZUMA -- Macon County nearly picked up a signature win against Peach County a year ago.

The Bulldogs found one Friday.

Khari Lane passed for 231 yards on 12-of-16 passed. Lane rushed for two touchdowns in the victory. Deontae Hudson caught five passes for 120 yards.

Veterans quarterback Logan Byrd was 10-of-22 passing for 89 yards with two interceptions. The Warhawks also had two fumbles

Macon County (1-1) out-gained Veterans (0-2) 324-194.

National recruit Roquan Smith capped the scoring with a 75-yard put return for a touchdown early in the third quarter. The Bulldogs led 20-7 at the half.

Things don't get easier for Veterans. The Warhawks host Washington County -- ranked No. 1 in Class AAA -- and then travel to Valdosta the next week.
