Cedar Grove Opens Season With 52-10 Win In New Head Coach John Adams Debut
In week two of high school football action in Georgia, the Cedar Grove Saints suited up for their season opener against the Tucker Tigers, who were looking to bounce back from their opening loss to Dacula. The Saints were impressive on their opening drive, however, unable to find the end zone, Cedar Grove would settle for a field goal to take an early 3-0 lead. On the ensuing possession for the Tigers, the Saints’ defense would give them their first touchdown of the game as they forced a fumble that resulted in a scoop and score by the Cedar Grove defense and they would take a 10-0 lead.
The Saints offense would soon get going afterwards scoring the 14 points as Jabari Cleckley would connect with Trevon Ferrell for a touchdown through the air and then Arkansas commit, Rashad Dubinion would go untouched as he rushed for another Saints score. As they would go up 24-0. Cedar Grove would prove to be too much for the Tigers to handle on either side of the ball as the Saints would go on to pick up the 52-10 win in coach John Adams debut as the Cedar Grove new head coach.
Following the win, Adams talked about his team preparing for their next game against Colquitt County, who lost to Westlake 31-24 on Friday, ending their 25 home game win streak. Although he was impressed by the play of his guys in Friday’s win, Adams noted that they’ll need to “work on the small things” when they get back to work next week. “We have to start from scratch. They’re going to enjoy it tonight. But we have to get in the film room, we have to have a heck of a week of practice,” Adams said. And with Colquitt looking to bounce from their loss to Westlake, which end their streak, Adams says they have to be “firing on all cylinders.”
