Adairsville Dominates Coahulla Creek
The Adairsville Tigers (8-1, 6-1) continued their dominance in region play, and beat the Coahulla Creek Colts (0-9, 0-7) on Friday evening by a score of 63-3. Sidnee Johnson quickly put to rest any notions of him being injured, when he scored on Adairsville’s first play from scrimmage; an 80-yard touchdown run. Despite his run, Johnson did not play very much, so that he could rest his injury. Head coach Eric Bishop called into the Harry Daniel Insurance Postgame Party and credited Sam Seaman with great play, as the second string quarterback. Bishop was very happy to get some experience for all the underclassmen on the team. He said it was a factor that they have been looking to do, to get them into a Friday night atmosphere. The Tigers will play Gordon Central next Friday at 7:30.
Cass Holds On, Beats Rome
The Cass Colonels (5-4, 3-3) held on to beat the Rome Wolves (2-6, 2-5) on Friday night by a score of 24-21. This was the first time Cass had beaten Rome, according to head coach Bobby Hughes, who called into the Harry Daniel Insurance Postgame Party. Hughes said that this was a big win for Cass. Rome was threatening toward the end of the game, and was on the Cass 35-yard line. AFter a bad snap and a sack, Rome faced a 4th and 22 with 38 seconds remaining. “Yes and no,” said Hughes about whether he was worried about Rome retaking the lead. Hughes and his coaching staff felt that with the wind blowing against Rome, that the Wolves would have to put the ball in the endzone to take the lead over Cass. Rome failed to convert a pass over the middle, and the Colonels moved above. 500 for the first time since September 12th. The Colonels will play at Forsyth Centrail next Friday; a team they beat 13-6 on September 12th.
