  • Canes sink Buccaneers; Woodland and Adairsville suffer non-region losses

    Senior running back Khristian Lando ran for three touchdowns in the first half Friday night as the Cartersville Purple Hurricanes defeated the visiting Allatoona Buccaneers at Weinman Stadium, 37-0. Lando’s first touchdown was a two-yard dive that gave the Canes a 7-0 lead with 5:06 remaining in the first quarter. He then scored twice in ten seconds putting Cartersville up 35-0 at the intermission. With 0:35 to go before the break, Lando scored on a 3-yard plunge. Following a Bucs turnover, he added his third scoring run from five yards out with 0:25 left in the half. The two other first half touchdowns for the Hurricanes came on a Richard Houston 2-yard run with 10:56 to go in the second quarter and a 29-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Nate Russell to Ja’Mauri Brice at the 6:53 mark of the second period. The only second half scoring was a Cartersville safety with 4:06 remaining in the third quarter. A bad snap by Allatoona on a punt attempt led to the safety. Allatoona falls to 0-3 on the season with the loss. Cartersville (3-0) hosts Columbia next Friday (Sept. 8) at 7:30 p.m. MODEL 27, WOODLAND 21 The Model Blue Devils scored 21 unanswered points in the second half Friday night leading to a 27-21 non-region win over the visiting Woodland Wildcats. Woodland led 14-6 at halftime after trailing 6-0 in the early going. Model’s Amir Pinkard stripped the football and ran it in for a touchdown from the nine yard line on a punt play. Pinkard was able to wrestle the ball away on the Wildcats’ punt reception, but the Blue Devils’ PAT attempt failed leaving Model with a 6-0 lead with 4:25 to go in the first quarter. Woodland tied the score at 6-all on a Devin Teasley 2-yard run with 7:30 left in the half. The Wildcats’ PAT attempt failed. Four minutes later, Woodland quarterback Brelace Williams connected with Jamarion Walker on a 13-yard touchdown pass. Teasley followed with a two-point conversion run giving the Wildcats an eight point lead at the break. Woodland extended the lead to 21-6 early in the third quarter when Teasley scored on a 3-yard run. This time Nick Miranda’s PAT kick was good. Model responded with their next two possessions to knot the score. Gage McWhorter punched in a 1-yard run to cap off an 80-yard drive for the Blue Devils with 4:38 left in the third period. Pinkard had a key 39-yard reception during the drive. A successful PAT kick made the score 21-13. A turnover then set up a 20-yard touchdown pass from Model’s Keith Sprayberry to Pinkard. That was followed by a two-point conversion pass reception by Jeremias Heard to tie the game at 21-all with 3:08 to play in the third quarter. Model captured the lead for good midway through the fourth quarter. The Blue Devils’ go-ahead scoring drive was capped with a 3-yard run by Collin Watson with just over 7 minutes remaining. The PAT attempt was blocked leaving the score at 27-21. Both teams had additional fourth quarter possessions, but Model hung on for a six-point victory. Model (2-0) hosts Trion on September 15.

RABUN COUNTY 35, ADAIRSVILLE 20 Adairsville quarterback Jonathan Gough rushed for three touchdowns Friday night but the Tigers lost a 35-20 decision to the visiting Rabun County Wildcats. Gough had two of his scoring runs in the first half. The first — a 14-yarder — gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead and capped a 7-play, 87-yard drive. The second Gough TD came with less than two minutes remaining in the second quarter to make the score 14-14 at halftime. The Tigers’ possession came after a Tamarius Wilkey interception to halt a Rabun County drive. This time Gough punched in a 4-yard run to finish off an 85-yard, 14-play journey. Cooper Souders added the Tigers’ PATs. The Wildcats' two scores in the first half were a 6-yard pass from Ty Truelove to Noah English and a 70-yard Truelove to Willie Goodwyn completion to tie the score just before the intermission. After traded three-and-out drives by both the Wildcats and the Tigers to start the third quarter, Rabun County Head Coach Mike Davis resorted to some trickery. Truelove threw to Reid Giles, who then threw a 69-yard strike to a streaking Goodwyn, who was all alone on the sideline. Goodwyn raced the distance to put the Wildcats up by a score of 21-14 and the gadget resulted in the only scoring play of the third quarter. Gough added his third touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. His 4-yard keeper culminated a 48-yard, 7-play drive but the Tigers missed the PAT kick leaving the score 21-20. After the Wildcats went ahead 28-20 on a 7-yard run by Giles, the Tigers put together one more serious scoring threat. Adairsville drove deep into Rabun territory with less than two minutes remaining in the game, but an interception at the goal line by the Wildcats’ Paul Picciotti ended the Tigers’ threat. Rabun County added a final touchdown just seconds later on an 87-yard pass from Trulove to Goodwyn for a 35-20 final score. The Wildcats improved to 2-1 with their victory and will host Heard County on September 15. Adairsville (1-1) visits Cass next Friday (Sept. 8) in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. ~~ Charles Wilson, Larry Gardner, Matt Santini, and David Archer, Jr. contributed to this report.
