The Bears fall 41-0 to the Grizzlies as they continue their first season struggles.
The Grizzly Den, packed as always for Homecoming, saw the Creekview defense shut out Cambridge, while the offense used both the run and an aerial assault to defeat the Bears 41-0. A Grizzly fumble recovery at about the 20 yard line led to the first points on the board with an explosive Isaiah Rodgers (27) touchdown in the first quarter. Creekview's Dylan Harrison (20) quickly followed up with an interception to bring it back inside the 10 yard line of Cambridge. On 3rd and long, QB Hayden Hall (6) threw a strike to WR Connor Dulmage (5) to put the Grizzlies on the board again. Kicker Connor Frasier (36) put through his second of the night to make it 14-0.

The Bears look for their first win, while the Raiders look to turn their season around.
Will the Cambridge Bears record their first win tonight against Osborne, another team without a win this season? Will Roswell or Milton win in this old-time rivalry? Can Alpharetta prevail against West Forsyth? The Cambridge Athletic Association seems to think it could be a big night for the Bears, as they face a Marietta team that lost three regular season games and both pre-season scrimmages. The Bears got their first points on the board, scoring 16 in a loss to undefeated South Forsyth last week. Obsorne lost two weeks ago to Campbell, 27-6, and had a bye week last Friday. @ Cambridge High Roswell Hornets vs. Milton Eagles Milton comes off a 52-24 win over Centennial last week, but the team hasn't been consistent.

Cambridge High hasn't even started its first football season and it already has its second head coach. Craig Bennett, formerly Milton High athletic director, was named as the new Cambridge Bears' head coach. He replaces Christian Hunnicutt, whom Cambridge Principal Ed Spurka said decided with his family to pursue other interests.
