Roper's three scores lift Adairsville past Colts, 20-10

Chris Roper scored three touchdowns including an 80-yard kickoff return as the Tigers won at Coahulla Creek, 20-10.

Adairsville’s Chris Roper scored three touchdowns and the Tigers’ defense kept Coahulla Creek out of the end zone until the fourth quarter Friday night while earning a 20-10 win.

Roper scored on a pair of first quarter touchdown runs from 19-yards and 28-yards as the Tigers grabbed a 13-0 lead.

Following a Colts’ 33-yard field goal that narrowed the margin to 13-3, Roper returned the ensuing kickoff 80 yards to give Adairsville a 20-3 lead at halftime.

The two teams battled through a scoreless third quarter and Coahulla Creek scored the only fourth quarter points.

A 60-yard pass from quarterback Kace Kinnamon to Justin Baker set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Payton Gordon. The Adairsville defense would hold off the Colts’ threats for the remainder of the final period, however, for a 10-point win.

Coahulla Creek slipped to 4-3 overall and 2-3 in Region 6-AAA. The Colts play at LaFayette next week.

Adairsville (5-1, 3-1) will host Sonoraville next Friday in Tiger Valley. The Phoenix (4-2, 2-2) beat Murray County Friday night 48-7.
