The Purple Hurricanes turned in another complete performance on both sides of the football. They racked up 490 total yards offensively, while holding Calhoun to just 75 total yards and only six yards in the second half. Any time a team’s entire yardage in a half doesn’t add up to a single first down, that is a feat that should not go unnoticed. Junior five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence tossed 350 yards off of 21-of-33 passing with three touchdowns and an interception. On the ground, Trey Creamer took his seven carries for an efficient 58 yards and four touchdowns.
While Cartersville is stationed firmly at the top of Class AAAA for another week, the rest of the classification continues to shuffle. Powerhouses Woodward Academy, Blessed Trinity, Mary Persons, Sandy Creek, Marist, Cairo, Stephens County, Pickens and Jefferson have all stepped into the loss column this season, while St. Pius has already dropped two games. Thomson, however, is off to a blazing start. The Bulldogs have dominated the competition through their first three games, the latest being a 42-20 victory over Jefferson on Friday.
