The game kicked off at 7:30pm, but it seemed like the offenses from both teams didn’t show up until about 8:30pm. There were a couple of turnovers in the first quarter and the defenses looked to be the key factor early in the game. The second quarter was a whole lot of the same, with Roswell missing a field goal halfway through the quarter. The two teams went into the locker rooms at halftime tied up at 0-0. It wasn’t until the four minute mark in the 3rd quarter until Roswell finally put points on the board, hitting a 25-yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead. Three minutes later, Roswell’s star running back, Sheldon Evans, rushed in for his first touchdown of the game and Roswell ended the quarter with a 10-0 lead. Milton had it’s opportunities in the last quarter of the game, but a couple of costly turnovers were the difference. Sheldon Evans would rush in for one more touchdown, as the Hornets would shutout the Eagles from Milton High School. The final score, 17-0.
