The Woodstock Wolverines came onto sacred Cherokee territory on Homecoming Friday night and were defeated 42 -21. On what was looking like a potentially rainy night, the Warriors had a beautiful night for Homecoming and for football!
Woodstock scored in all quarters except the third and made this a hard-fought contest. They find themselves at 4 – 1 overall and 3 – 1 in Region 5 AAAAAA, with Cherokee at 5 – 1 and 3 – 1 in Region 5 AAAAAA.
Cherokee coach Josh Shaw must have realized that this was more than Homecoming and the importance of this game. The Coach must have found the right words to motivate his team.
The Wolverines came into Cherokee Territory as the favorite to win and were encouraged when the Warriors allow them to score on the opening drive on a 12 – yard pass from #3 Justin Agner to #10 Josh Loud.
The Warriors would not be denied and Cherokee QB #4 Spencer Ashley put up almost 450 yards in passing, with #10 Andrew Harris converting two to touchdowns and one on an 88 yard run after the catch on 3rd and 15. Harris had an impressive game with 11 catches for 204 yards.

Cherokee (5-1, 3-1) now joins Woodstock (4-1, 3-1) in whats essentially a four-way tie for the region lead, alongside two other one-loss region teams Milton, which beat Etowah on Friday, and Roswell, which was upset by Wheeler. Region 5 AAAAAA is shaping up to be a game-by-game and week-by-week must see affair with Walton’s forfeits and the results of this week!
