Woodstock holds on to victory in shootout with Sequoyah

Both Sequoyah and Woodstock came into 2020 looking to improve on disapointing 2019 campaigns. The Chiefs went 5-5, missing the playoffs just a year after their elite eight appreance in 2018. The Wolverines were only able to claim 3 wins in 2019, despite having one of the most talented rosters in Cherokee County. 


Both teams came in with a vengance for the first game of the 2020 season. 


Woodstock was led by David Daniel, the 4-star Georgia commit, who made an impact in all three phases of the game. He had a punt block, 4 carries for 66 yards, 1 reception for 11 yards, a 70 yard kick return, and found the endzone once to give the Wolverines the boost they needed to claim the victory. 


Sequoyah relied on a Jaden Mitchell to give the Chiefs the offensive firepower they needed to keep up with Woodstock. Mitchell tallied 100 yards on 15 carries. 


The Chiefs proved they have the offense to keep up with other teams, scoring 3 times in the final frame of the game. 


Woodstock will travel to River Ridge Friday, and Sequoyah will make the trip to Cherokee to battle the Warriors. 

River Ridge runs over Lassiter for the first win of 2020

River Ridge came into 2020 as one of the most underrated teams in the state. With a decisive win over the Lassiter Trojans, everyone has been put on notice.


The Knights were led by a familiar name, Amehre Morrison. Morrison racked up over 200 yards and 5 touchdowns on the night, with the first score of the game being a 76 yard run with less than a minute off the clock. 


Coach Mike Collins heaped praise on the new Quarterback for the Knights, Carson Lathem. Lathem did not dissapoint, claiming 2 touchdowns on his first start at QB. 


Although the Trojans were a struggling team last season, it was good for Knights fans to see that River Ridge was able to handle Lassiter with relative ease. 


River Ridge will host Woodstock on Friday, a game that will truly test how good the Knights can be in 2020. 

Creekview edges out Etowah for the first win in the series

Creekview and Etowah had never faced each other going into Friday nights contest, and the first game of the series was one for the books. 


Creekview came into the game as heavy favorites, largely due to the return of Brody Rhodes and a large number of defensive starters. 


Etowah was under the direction of new head coach Matt Kemper, who relied on two young Quarterbacks to lead the Eagles defense. Braden Bohannon and Will Curcio took turns at the helm of the Eagles offense, which only managed to find the endzone once. 


Both teams struggled offensively, neither team could manage more than 200 yards for the entire game, but the defenses were on display. 


Rhodes was only able to complete 4 passes on 15 attempts, but the biggest play of the game was a swing pass to our Player of the Game Tyler Stevens for the game tying score. Creekview was able to add the PAT and claimed the victory 14-13 over the Eagles. 


Creekview will enjoy a bye week before heading back down to Towne Lake to battle the Woodstock Wolverines.


Etowah will travel to Forsyth Central on Friday and try to claim the first win of the Matt Kemper Era. 

Cherokee runs past Carver 38-12 in the Corky Kell

In a night filled with excitement, the Warriors battled through injury to top the Carver Panthers 38-12. 


RB Keith Adams Jr. got the night started for the warriors with a 3-yard touchdown run on the opening possesion. The scoring slowed drastically after that, a 21 yard field goal by Joel Stahl gave the Warriors a 10-0 lead heading into the half. 


However, the big story of the first half was star QB AJ Swann going down to injury at the end of the first half. He sustained an upper body injury that put him in a sling when the team came on the field for the second half. 


Cherokee fans also saw Keith Adams Jr. exit the game with injury multiple times during the game, which later were revealed just to be cramps. 


The second half showed the offenses hitting their stride, as Cherokee added two rushing touchdowns in the third quarter alone, giving the Warriors a 24-0 lead heading into the final frame. 


Both Adams and Swann returned to the game, although Adams was removed in the 4th quarter as a precaution. 


The 4th quarter gave way to the only two carver scores of the night, one of them being a 56 yard pass from Sophomore QB Lorenza Lennon, the other being a 5 yard touchdown run for Adam Sheely.


Cherokee answered back with a 67 yard touchdown pass from AJ Swann to Junior WR Adam Fullen, and a punt return for a touchdown by Junior WR Keegan Baker. 


Cherokee will get a few extra days rest before hosting the Sequoyah Cheifs on September 11th
