Creek falls to Cartersville, 0-2 in Region 5-3A

CARTERSVILLE — Despite what the coach called “inconsistent” play, the Cartersville Purple Hurricanes on Friday easily handled Coahulla Creek for a 41-3 win in the region matchup.

Five touchdowns from four different receivers and a field goal gave the Canes a hefty lead heading into halftime, and a second field goal from Zach Edwards in the fourth quarter would close out scoring for the home team. The Canes are now 5-0, 2-0 in Region 5-AAA. The loss dropped Coahulla Creek to 1-4 overall, 0-2 in region play.

“It was just up and down at times. At times we played good on offense, at times we played good on defense, at times we played good in the kicking game, but it wasn’t consistent,” Canes head coach Frank Barden said. “We didn’t start the game off well. You know they had a good long drive and kept the ball a lot of the first quarter, and then, to start the second half, we went three-and-out on offense, so that’s the bad things. And so you’ve got to get better.”

The Colts ate up the first seven minutes of the game in a 70-yard drive, eating up 36 yards in a run by Cameron Burton. Coahulla Creek capped the drive with a field goal from Irwin Rivera.

On the ensuing kickoff, the Colts tried for and recovered an onside kick but failed to the keep the momentum, turning the ball over on the first play from center at the Cartersville 48-yard line.

Three plays later, the Canes were on the board courtesy of a 21-yard connection from quarterback Brooks Barden to receiver T.L. Ford in the left corner of the end zone with less than five minutes left in the first quarter. Edwards’ point-after touchdown gave Cartersville the 7-3 lead.

After taking a high snap, Colts quarterback Blaine Williams bobbled the ball, turning it over again to the Canes at the Coahulla Creek 30.

  • 7on7 championship game6.jpg Bringing in the best

    When high school football coaches look for events to take their teams to during the summer, they are looking for three things — top competition, organization and hospitality.
    For The Daily Citizen’s Southeastern 7-on-7 Championship, the Dalton community and local business leaders take care of the latter. The tournament officials work tirelessly to provide the organization. And the two combined assure the top competition will show up.

  • s-CCHS softball 8.jpg On a mission

    The local girls who visited the Dominican Republic last week on a mission trip through Score International tell a matching story.
    Toward the end of a visit to Pasitos de Jesus, a girls orphanage in Boca Chica, the children began singing the Gospel song “Mighty to Save” to their visitors.
    “It sent chills down your spine,” said Kala Franks, a rising senior at Coahulla Creek High School. “I felt they were ministering to me rather than us ministering to them.”

    When Northwest Whitfield repeated as the Georgia High School Association Class 4A softball state champion last fall, that appeared to be the last time the majority of the Lady Bruins’ senior class would be teammates on the diamond.
    Now, thanks to the Stump on Sports All-Star Softball Classic, five of those six seniors will reunite to play together one more time.

    Isabel Salinas’ freshman season for Southeast Whitfield High School’s track and field team wasn’t up to her standards, and she really isn’t sure why it ended up that way in 2013. It could have been her injuries. It could have been not being in proper shape.
    One thing Salinas, nicknamed “Izzy” by friends and coaches, does know is that her sophomore year went a lot better.

    Before there were any attempts in the high jump finals Thursday at the Class 3A boys track and field state high school meet at Jefferson High School’s Memorial Stadium, there was some trash talking.
    Coahulla Creek assistant coach Eric Bishop said one of the competitors approached top-seeded Josh Foxx, a Coahulla Creek junior, and told Foxx he was about to run into a wolf.

    VARNELL — Just as in other matches this season, there were handshakes and hugs awaiting the members of Coahulla Creek High School’s boys tennis team as they walked off the court Monday.
    Unfortunately for the Colts, this time they were of the comforting rather than the congratulating variety.

  • Creek girls fall short at Oconee Co.

    In 2013, Coahulla Creek’s girls high school tennis team saw their season end on the road at Oconee County in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament.
    Friday in the second round of this year’s tournament, the Lady Warriors again were the team to end the Coahulla Creek season, taking a 3-0 win in Watkinsville. But coach Matt Facey hopes the second-round loss means the Lady Colts will advance at least to the state quarterfinals next season.
