Woodland Falls Short During Homecoming
The Woodland Wildcats (0-7, 0-4) welcomed the Rome Wolves (2-4, 2-2) to Wildcat Stadium on Friday evening, in hopes of capturing the elusive first win of the 2014 season. Rome got the scoring started early by taking a 7-0, but Woodland quickly answered with a 33-yard field goal. Unfortunately those would be the only points for Woodland in the first half, but Rome would score and score often. The Wolves put up 28-consecutive points in the first half, following the Woodland field goal. The Wildcats did score first in the second half thanks to a 35-yard reception by Jonathan Applin, but it was not enough as the Wildcats fell to Rome by a score of 38-10. Woodland will welcome North Murray next Friday night at 7:30.
Adairsville Drubs Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe
Following their convincing win over Murray County last Friday, the Adairsville Tigers (6-1, 4-1) continued their dominance in Class-AAA by beating the Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe Warriors (3-5, 3-3) by a score of 55-0. This was the first shutout for Adairsville this season. Adairsville got started early with the run game. Sidnee Johnson continued his stellar play for the 2014 season accounting for several touchdowns. Johnson had 143 yards rushing at the end of the first half, while tailback Marcus Childers had 117 yards. The Tigers will play next Friday night at Tiger Stadium, when they welcome North Murray to Adairsville at 7:30.
