Cedartown scored the first seven times they touched the ball before kneeling down to end the game on their last possession. Because of their relentess rushing attack, the young Bulldogs easily defeated Chattooga 52-0 to finish the regular season undefeated.
Josh Lee started the scoring frenzy for Bob Tracy’s team as he ran 53 yards to paydirt just 2:34 into the game. The two-point conversion failed but Cedartown had taken a 6-0 lead that they would not relinquish.
At the 3:10 mark of the first quarter, Freddie Moore took a handoff 46 yards to the end zone. Lee ran in the conversion to make it 14-0.
Seven seconds into the second quarter, Harrison Barnett threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Austin Pope. Barnett then completed the two-point pass to Moore to make it 22-0.
Exactly one minute later, Moore darted into the end zone from 32 yards out. Lee caught the two-point pass from Barnett and Cedartown held a 30-0 advantage.
Despite holding such a large margin, Cedartown wasn’t done with their first half scoring. With 3:05 left in the half A.J. Heath ran in from 13 yards out. The conversion failed, but the Bulldogs held a 36-0 lead.
With 1:55 showing on the first half clock, Heath would score from 38 yards out. Peyton Payne ran in the two-point conversion to make it 44-0. That would be the halftime score.
Since Cedartown held such a large lead, the second half was played under a mercy rule and featured a running clock.
The Bulldogs scored one more time in the game when Steven Blazer bulled his way into the end zone from two yards out with eight seconds left in the third quarter. The two-point conversion made it 52-0.
Cedartown, which has scored 102 points in their last two games, will host Darlington Tuesday in the league championship game.
