South Forsyth and Buford Victorious In Day Two of Corky Kell Classic
On Friday, the Corky Kell Classic continued as games got underway in Atlanta at the new Georgia State Stadium. Double header would highlight the second day of the classic and feature Roswell going heads up with South Forsyth in game one and Buford taking on Hillgrove in game two. It would be a slow start in the first game of the night as neither team could manage to put up any points until the third quarter when Roswell's Cordel Littlejohn would connect with Walt Warren on a 20 yard touchdown pass to give Roswell a 7-0 lead.
South Forsyth would manage to tie things up in the fourth quarter after a Jared Honey 15 rushing touchdown and the game would go into overtime knotted up 7-7. In the first overtime period, Roswell would take a 14-7 lead after a Littlejohn scramble but South Forsyth would answer back courtesy Cal Morris' quarterback keeper and make it a 14-14 game. In the second OT period, Roswell would fail to score giving South Forsyth a chance to win the game with a field goal and that is exactly what they did as the final score was 17-14.
In the second game of the night the Hillgrove Hawks jumped out to an early 10-0 lead over Buford, but freshman quarterback Aaron McLaughlin and company would not let the Hawks get too far out of reach. Buford's Christian Turner would put the Wolves on the board and make it a 10-7 game in favor of the Hawks.
And in the second quarter, down 17-10, Buford would tie things up after McLaughlin would score on the quarterback keeper and make it 17-17 game. In the second half it would be all Wolves as McLaughlin would connect with Tyler Gillis and Buford would go up 24-17.
Later in the third quarter, Turner would strike once again, and the Wolves would take a 31-17 lead. In the fourth quarter, McLaughlin and Gillis would connect for a second time and Buford would go on to win by a final score of 48-17. The Wolves had an impressive 316 yards on the ground in the win.
