WEBB’S SEVEN TDs PACE HURRICANES
Tee Webb tossed six touchdown passes and ran for one as the Cartersville Purple Hurricanes tamed the visiting Luella Lions 55-3 Friday night at Weinman Stadium.
Cartersville cruised to a 34-0 lead in the first quarter and added 21 more before the intermission.

Webb (photo) connected with Kaleb Chatman on a 48-yarder to open Cartersville’s scoring. He followed that with a scoring toss to Marcus Gary and a second touchdown pass to Chatman to go ahead 20-0.
Webb rushed rushed for a late first quarter score and hooked up with Gary for a fourth TD pass to put the Canes on top, 34-0.
In the second quarter, Gary added a 4-yard rushing touchdown, while Webb hit Harrison Allen for a 39-yard scoring pass and Amari Orr on another to give Cartersville a 55-0 advantage at the break.

FORSYTH CENTRAL 24, CASS 12
Cass fell behind 17-0 in the first half at Forsyth Central Friday night and was unable to overcome the deficit in a 24-12 non-region loss.
Forsyth Central kicked a first quarter field goal and took advantage of a pair of Cass turnovers to build their first half lead.
Cass fumbled a punt on its own 11-yard line, which allowed Forsyth Central quarterback Ryan Vanuum to score from 9 yards out. Then the Colonels’ quarterback, Rett Moore, was intercepted with a return to inside the Cass 5-yard line. Vanuum followed with his second touchdown run. This time from four yards out.
Cass narrowed the Forsyth Central lead to 17-6 in the third quarter with a 22-yard touchdown pass from Moore to Jacquez Fountain, but Devran Orson’s four-yard TD run pushed the Bulldogs’ lead back to 24-6 in the fourth quarter.
The Colonels added a touchdown with 2:12 remaining on an 8-yard run by Moore, but that would be as close as they would get.
Forsyth Central improved to 2-0 on the season.
Cass (1-1) will host Woodland next Friday.
