The Adairsville Tigers got back in the win column with a 38-7 win over region foe Murray County on Friday night.
Adairsville was led by Courtney Slocum, who had three rushing scores in the contest. The Tiger defense allowed one touchdown. Slocum got into the score column early with a 49-yard touchdown run with 8:49 left in the first quarter. About two minutes later, Conner Crunkelton pitched the ball to Slocum for a 13-yard score and a 14-0 Adairsville lead. Chris Roper was the next Tiger to score with 2:48 left in the first period, as he found the end zone on a 9-yard pass from Crunkelton.
Murray County was able to cut into the Adairsville lead with a score early in the second period, but the 14-point deficit was about to get bigger for the Indians. Emanuel Lopez kicked a 46-yard field goal before Slocum would find pay dirt for the trifecta: a 4-yard touchdown run. At the half, the Tigers led 31-7.
In the third quarter, Roper juked his way 38 yards for a score to extend the Adairsville lead and put the game away comfortably.
Adairsville has another bye week next week but will be back in action at Lafayette on October 9th.
