Adairsville stays unbeaten with 22-6 win over LaFayette

Adairsville sophomore quarterback Jonathan Gough threw two touchdown passes and converted a two-point conversion pass on a scramble play in the Tigers 22-6 home win Friday night over the LaFayette Ramblers.

The touchdown passes by Gough went to Evan Sanders and Grayson Belcher in the second quarter for a 14-0 halftime lead. Both were 16-yard completions followed by PAT kicks by Arthur Lefler. The first touchdown capped an 87-yard scoring drive.

After LaFayette’s Jacob Brown booted a 47-yard field goal midway through the third quarter to narrow the Tigers’ lead to 14-3, Gough found Grayson Belcher on a 41-yard pass to set up the final Adairsville touchdown — a 5-yard run by Eli Agnew.

When the ensuing PAT snap was bad, Gough scrambled long enough to find Sanders for a 2-point conversion pass and a 22-3 lead late in the third quarter.

LaFayette’s Brown connected on a 43-yard field goal in the first minute of the fourth quarter to make the score 22-6, but got no closer with the two teams trading possessions for the remainder of the game.

Agnew finished the night with 126 yards for the Tigers on 21 rushing attempts. Gough was 9 of 14 through the air for 137 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.

Sanders caught five passes for 69 yards and a score. Belcher hauled in three passes for 63 yards and a touchdown.

The Tigers' defense limited LaFayette star running back Jaylon Ramsey to just 50 yards on 13 touches. He had been averaging 96 yards per game coming into the contest.

The loss drops the Ramblers to 3-2 on the season and 2-1 in Region 6-AAA.

Adairsville (4-0, 2-0) hosts Ringgold (5-0, 3-0) next Friday in Adairsville’s Tiger Valley.
