On October 11, the Cherokee Warriors defeated Roswell 21-14 during the football team’s senior night. Although Roswell’s team was 3-1 before last Friday’s conference game, Cherokee dominated the field all game long.
Before the game started, Senior night commenced with seniors from cheer, band, and the football team walked down the field as each name was called out from the press box. The crowd cheered as their friends and loved ones got their moment to be appreciated for their time in the sport.
The Cherokee Warriors played amazing during the game, making interceptions throughout and doing intricate plays. By the second quarter, Cherokee was up 21-0. Although Roswell scored 14 points by the end of the game, the Hornets could not pull off the win.
This game brings our overall to 5-2. This also brings our ranking in Georgia to number 82 and our win percentage to 71.4%.
