Chris Carson scored two touchdowns as the Parkview High School football team beat Archer 20-18 Friday in Lawrenceville.
The 10th-ranked Panthers, who led 14-0 in the first half, needed to hang on to improve to 3-1 overall, 2-0 in Region 8-AAAAAA and avenge a loss last year to the Tigers that knocked them out of the playoff hunt.
Parkview, which beat previous No. 1 Grayson last week, took a big step with Friday's win. A win next week at home against rival Brookwood could very well decide the region championship.
It was the second straight close loss for Archer (2-2, 0-2), which lost 20-19 at Brookwood last week.
