God Bless America and Troup County TlmDuffey 1oup County Conmssion Chairnmn \\; Pd Pol. Adv. by Friend to Elect Tim DLey I II I I the football after the Eagles' free kick and bined for 14 By JOD.Y HALE A Hollywood screenplay executed like the drama played out by the Callaway Cavaliers and the "lYi-Comnty Eagles last Friday night would be a blockbuster at the box office. For the Cavs, the script could not have been xTitten mW better. In a game that seemed like a micro- cosm of the Callaway season, the Cavaliers came from behind three times to defeat qYi-Cotmty 24-23, securing the fourth and final region 4-AA playoff spot. "\\;Vhat a way to win a game," said Callaway head coach Claude Giddens. "Our guys just kept fighting and some- hoxL in the least likely was; we found a way to win." The dranm, ironically enough, began when Callawag down 23-22, drove the ball to the Iragles 14 yard line and seemed poised to position themselves for at least a field goal opportunity. However, back- up quazerback Kowalski Patterson thi-ew an interception with less than two mijmtes to play in the fourth quarter. As fate would have it though, Tri- Comity had to stm't their drive from their oxl one yard line. "IPying to just run out the clock, Tri- County quarterback Brian Scott injured his thumb and a freshman was inserted at quarterback. On the very next pla); the snap from center was bobbled and recovered by the Eagles in the end zone for a Callaway safe- ty and a 24-23 lead. Calla,way protected walked away with the state playoffs as their next stop. Giddens was happy with the win, but felt compassion for Tri-County's freshman quarterback. "That's a tough spot to be in regard- less of the experience factor, but with so much riding on this game it really put a ninth grader in a pressure situation. It's unfortunate for them but that's just part of the game. We were lucky to get a big break at the end of the game,"said Giddens. LADY LUCK HAS been good to the Cavaliers lately, after being so cruel the first part of the season. This game, in a sense, paralleled Callaway's roller coaster season. Just two weeks ago, it looked as though they would be playing for pride and building for next year but the Cars got a big break when Southeast Macon had to forfeit six wins for playing an ineligible player. That left the door open for Callaway to steal the playoff spot by winning their final two games, which they did. A loss would have created a three-way tie for fourth place with Manchester and Tri-County. "I think this team has experienced about every emotion possible," said Giddens. "One week we're dejected for not mak- ing the playoffs and the next week we're right back in the race. It's all been very exciting." The game looked like it was going to be a shootout when the two teams com- two seconds of the game. Callaway took advantage of an fumble and Chris r scored to l Cavaliers up 7-0. On the "li-County's Keidrick Wilson raced yards for a touchdown that tied the with 1ff.58 still to go in the gust quarter. Both teams' defenses stiffened that and neither team could a sustained drive. Tri-Countv er touchdown and a Callawa] the Cars got another touchdown Tigner to make the score running out in the third quarter. ...... With 22 seconds left in the a two point conversion run to put Cavaliers back on top 22-16. Tri-County came right back with touchdown at the six minute mark to the visitors back up, 23-22_ Martin's run also pushed the rushing yards over the 1,000 mark for season. Martin finhed the yards rushing. "We'd been running our traps right side the just opened up. Our offensive line did great job. All I bad to do Martin.
