The Eagles shut down the Comets in the second half, but couldn't generate enough offense to overcome a 17-point deficit from the first half.
Saturday, November 17, 2012
The Milton Eagles led the South Gwinnett Comets in almost every stat – time of possession, total yards, third-down conversions, fourth-down conversions and even Red Zone scoring chances. What they couldn't do in Friday night's first round playoff game is to lead in the stat that counts – scoring. The visiting Eagles lost at Snellville, with the Comets advancing to the second round on their 27-20 win. South Gwinnett took the opening kickoff and was driving in Milton territory when a fumble cost them the possession, according to stats provided by Bill Berry. But what seemed like momentum for the Eagles ended when the drive stalled and the Comets got the ball back after a punt. It was the first of 14 punts in the game, with each team's punter…

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.

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.
