Kell Squeaks By Creekview 33-29
At home in the Grizzly Den, Creekview felt a win was attainable over the Cobb County powerhouse. Although Kell was victorious, the Grizzlies let the Longhorns know there is a new threat in Division 5AAAAA.
The 2-0 Grizzlies played their first game against Kell High with rumors that Kell was a 20-plus point favorite. This seemed to become reality with the Grizzlies quickly trailing 14-0 due to a fumble and an interception early in the game.
Creekview had other ideas, though. The Grizzlies scored twice in the first half to tie it up at 14-14. For the rest of the contest, the game was up for grabs, staying within single score range for both teams. At one point in the second half, Creekview had the lead at 29-26.
Kell scored late in the game to make it 33-29. Creekview was driving with around 1:30 left in the fourth quarter, but lost the ball with an interception inside the 10-yard line.
The Grizzlies may have lost the game, but rest assured, they showed they are a contender going forward in the 2012 season.
