Walton 38, Cherokee 14After dropping their first two games of the season, the Walton Raiders are clicking when it matters.
The Raiders are now 2-0 in Region 5-AAAAAA, tying them for first place with Etowah and Milton.
K.K. Brooks scored four touchdowns and ran for 202 yards for Walton, who've now won three in a row and will play host to East Cobb archrival Lassiter next week.
Woodstock 44, Lassiter 43The Trojans were trying to add to their winning streak after edging Cherokee last week, thanks only to a missed extra point. But Lassiter tempted fate for a second week in a row in another close, high-scoring game.
After scoring a touchdown and converting a two-point play to get to within a point with less than three minutes to play, the Trojans (2-3, 1-1) attempted an onside kick to get the ball back, but Woodstock recovered.
Milton 38, Wheeler 9Wheeler scored first at Milton in another Region 5-AAAAAA game Friday, but the undefeated Eagles (5-0) roared back. The Wildcats, who fell to 2-3 and 0-2 in region play, play host to Roswell on Friday.
Kell 35, North Springs 0The Longhorns, ranked No. 3 in Class AAAAA, remained unbeaten on the road.
Kell went on a 21-0 run in the third quarter and got two touchdown runs from Darian Harris to move to 5-0. Kell plays at home against Riverwood Friday.
Cambridge 41, Pope 32The Greyhounds were seeking their second win of the season against a new North Fulton school that's still getting its football bearings.
But in a seesaw game, Pope couldn't hold on to the ball -- and a 26-12 lead -- in dropping to 1-4.
The Greyhounds were leading 32-29 in the fourth quarter when a fumble -- their sixth turnover of the game -- was converted quickly by Cambridge for the winning touchdown.
Pope returns home on Friday to play Osborne.
Sequoyah 35, Sprayberry 7The Yellow Jackets were seeking a second consecutive win, but never got untracked on the road. Their only score of the game came early in the second half after the contest had gotten well out of hand.
Sprayberry, also 1-4, is off this week before subregion play begins Oct. 11 against Riverwood.
