The Cedartown Bulldogs’ playoff run came to an end with a trip to Marist, where the War Eagles cut the Bulldogs’ season off with a 31-18 loss Friday night.
Cedartown’s kept the game close through the first half, holding the War Eagles just a touchdown and went into the locker room with a 7-6 lead. Marist struck in the opening of the second half with a touchdown, and Cedartown responded with a score of its own but missed a 2-point conversion. That was followed up by a 80-yard touchdown run on the kickoff return, the first the Bulldogs gave up all year.
“That was a momentum changer for us,” Kelley said. “We’d just come back and score, and that turned the game in their favor.”
Marist added two more touchdowns on a game Xwhere they were only able to rack up 255 yards compared to Cedartown’s 314. Trevon Wofford put up 255 of those yards on 11 completions and 28 attempts, throwing all three of Cedartown’s touchdowns to Tony Mathis and Keshun Kent.
Wofford also gave up two interceptions.
