The Cartersville Hurricanes’ football team made an outstanding run through pool play Friday at the 3rd annual Corky Kell 7-on-7 Invitational at the Roswell Area Parks Football Complex, but was knocked out of the bracket play portion of the tournament in their second round game.
Cartersville defeated Mountain View 34-26; Houston County 29-2; Norcross 23-20; and Cherokee 41-7 in morning pool play to enter the 30-team single elimination championship bracket with a first round bye as the No. 1 seed.
The Canes then squared off with Archer in the second round where they were edged 38-36 in double-overtime. Archer went on to advance to the championship game with four consecutive wins, but fell to Central Gwinnett 32-14 to finish runner-up.
The head coach at Central Gwinnett is former Cass High School player and Woodland High School assistant coach, Todd Wofford.
