At the request of the Rome Wolves, the JV game scheduled for this Thursday October 23 has been delayed by 1 week. This game will be played on Thursday October 30th in Rome.
A little update on the last two weeks:
Etowah v. Woodstock:
Our Woodstock week was full of nail biters! Our Varsity boys played an AWESOME game and went back forth until the end of the 2nd OT. It was an unfortunate loss but our guys played a heck of a game. Congrats to our Freshmen and JV teams for their wins. We are so proud of ALL of our Eagles for their determination and fight. Final scores: Varsity, 47-44 Woodstock; JV 21-16 and Freshmen 22-20.
Milton v. Etowah:
Tough week last week v Milton. Milton took all. Final scores: Varsity 37-12, JV 21-7 and Freshmen 24-14. The good news is that our Eagles have moved on and are ready to take on Lassiter! No doubt, all three teams will soar this week!
Etowah v. Lassiter:
This week Varsity and JV will play at Lassiter and the Freshmen will play at home. Come out and cheer for our fearless players!

WOODSTOCK — Etowah rode the power of a rushing attack that produced 403 yards to remain unbeaten with a 35-20 win over Pope.
The Eagles (4-0, 2-0 Region 5AAAAAA) were led by a game-high 215 rushing yards from Raishod Devezin, who also scored two touchdowns.
Etowah, which now awaits a showdown in two weeks with archrival Woodstock — also 4-0 on the season — never trailed in the game.
“We are undefeated overall and are 2-0 in our tough region, which is the best that we can be,” Etowah coach Dave Svehla said. “But our boys are smart enough to know that we can’t continue to play the way we did (Friday) and hope to stay undefeated in our region.”
Devezin put Etowah ahead less than 2 minutes into the game when he scored from 7 yards out. Quarterback Robbie Knox then put the Eagles up by two touchdowns 6 minutes later, when he capped a 73-yard drive with a 19-yard scramble.
Both teams tightened up on defense for a scoreless second quarter. Etowah then went up by three touchdowns when lineman Scott Morgan dove over the goal line from 1-yard out midway through the third quarter.

Etowah coach Dave Svehla said it wasn’t an easy win, but his players certainly made it look that way.
“That was far from easy,” Svehla said. “I thought Cherokee played good defense. They were physical, and they got after us a little up front. We just kept plugging away.”
Cherokee (2-1, 0-1), which scored 42 points in each of its first two games, was held to just nine points in the first three quarters. A pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns made the Warriors’ offense look better on paper than it did on the field.
Cherokee was the first to put together a promising drive, but it came away with just a field goal after stalling inside the 20.
Etowah (3-0, 1-0) wasted no time responding, but it did so in the form of a 33-yard touchdown pass from Robbie Knox to Raishod Devezin. The point-after by Caleb Barden-Street gave Etowah a 7-3 lead, which held through the end of the first quarter.
Cherokee’s offense continued to struggle, while Etowah’s started to click.
