Cherokee homecoming was dampened by Milton's win, but in the end Cherokee Warriors and their fans showed that winning is more than just a game.
The Milton Eagles spoiled the Cherokee Warriors homecoming, but that didn't stop the home team from handing over thousands of dollars in donations to support a Milton coach who is battling cancer. Cherokee's homecoming (Canton, GA.) Friday night was a evening full of elegant gowns, tuxes and suits, a gift from Cherokee to Milton's Michael Scott Fund and a win by Milton 49-7. The Eagles opened the scoring with a touchdown pass in the first quarter and they continued scoring throughout the first half to lead at halftime 28-7. The Warriors Hunter Wingfield (jr.) led the offense and scored on a 9-yard run for the only score of the night for Cherokee. Halftime was filled with Homecoming Ceremonies as Nick Ragsdale and Samantha Holloway were …

King's Ridge Christian travels to Whitefield Academy in Mableton tonight, looking to improve its record to a winning season after a strong victory last Friday. King's Ridge improved its record to 4-4 after beating Fellowship Chirstian 55-20, according to Maxpreps.com. But tonight's matchup against Whitefield Academy could be a stiffer test, as the Wolfpack is 5-3 on the season. The Wolfpack lost 21-14 against Walker last week. (October 26, 2012: Alpharetta, GA 30004) In Friday's league test, the host King's Ridge Christian football team scored a decisive 55-20 win over the Fellowship Christian Paladins. Fellowship Christian fell to 1-7 with last week's loss. The Paladins host Mount Pisgah Christian tonight, another 5-3 team.

The Raiders hosted the Cougars in a game filled with interceptions, a blocked punt and tipped passes.
A couple of interceptions of Raiders' quarterback Josh Dobbs passes looked to put Alpharetta in jeopardy against the visiting Chattahoochee Cougars. But the defense kept the Raiders in the game as the offense got itself on track. In the end, an interception preserved the win for Alpharetta when Chattahoochee was marching down the field for what could have been a game-winning touchdown or a field goal. Alpharetta won, 21-19, despite its inside running game never really getting on track. Passes by Dobbs and runs to the outside were enough to move the ball. The Cougars were first to score, converting a fumble recovery by the defense into a field goal to lead, 3-0. Chattahoochee next scored on a quarterback keeper, but the PAT kick missed, …

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. RB Chandler Wold (18) was next with a spectacular 60+ yard run for a TD to make it …

Alpharetta and Chattahoochee players, coaches and fans join together to make it a pink night.
Hardly a seat remained at Alpharetta High's football stadium Friday night, Oct. 19, as the home team Raiders took on the Chattahoochee Cougars in a key gridiron matchup. But rather than team colors, the fans were decked out in pink. Alpharetta High School was hosting the Second Annual Pink Out Football game benefitting Susan G. Komen and Northside Breast Care Center. It was “Two Teams, One Cause” as the Raiders and the Cougars joined together to raise funds for a cure. The night stared with a celebration, bringing cancer survivors onto the field to celebrate life and remember those who had passed. Marching bands from both schools intermingled to perform together. And one mother's life was remembered via video on the field's large video …

Mt. Pisgah's Aaron Winchester only connected with receivers eight times during the Patriots' contest against King's Ridge Christian Friday night, but four of those passes were for touchdowns, according to the team's website. It was a different story from last year, when King's Ridge beat the Patriots in OT to win, 20-14. Winchester led his team to a 35-26 victory on Oct. 12 over the visiting Tigers, going 8 of 14 and 187 yards, adding 25 yards rushing. Mt.

The two teams battled for victory on homecoming night in the 6-AAAAAA clash.
Homecoming always feels better when your team wins, and the Alpharetta Raiders easy victory over the North Forsyth Raiders must have been all that much better. Alpharetta won 55-21 in a game during which North Forsyth didn't do much to threaten the home team's lead. Two fourth down plays, however, showed Alpharetta's defense can be overcome. One of the plays resulted in a more than 30-yard gain, while the other turned into a 40-yard touchdown pass play. Alpharetta put together its own magic, scoring in two plays that took less than 20 seconds at the end of the game – a good thing as only 20.5 seconds remained on the clock at the time. Tempers began to flare late in the game, with players from both teams getting into the wrong kind of face …
