Hunter Wingfield filled in for Ashley for the rest of the game and also scored Cherokee's lone touchdown of the night in the first quarter. Wingfields QB keeper put Cherokee up 9 - 6 after the first quarter.
In the second quarter Etowah put up two touchdowns to take a 20-9 lead at halftime. The second half was a field possession battle with both defenses playing well with only Etowah hitting two field goals to end the nights scoring at 26-9.
