Just keep quiet, AJC, about East. Rope-a-Dope.

Well say what you want about the HIRAM / EAST game…It was a “PINK OUT” night at HIRAM and both sides showed there spirit in support of this cause.

EAST was coming off a BYE week and had yet to play a team that had really tested their “D”, IT SHOWED they looked VERY sluggish at the start and the question of “could HIRAM score on EAST” was settled right at the start as HIRAM broke of a LONG run and put up 6 before folks were barely settled in the stands! They missed the extra point and led 6 to 0…the first team to score against EAST since the opening game with NORTH 5 weeks ago!

That seemed to wake EAST up and they drove back to go ahead for good 7 / 6 with a touchdown of their own. EAST put up several more TD’s and HIRAM had a field goal for the score to get to 28 / 9 at one point. A lot of HIRAM fans started to leave thinking another “blow-out” was in store BUT sloppy play on EAST part giving up the ball twice on turnovers gave HIRAM quick scores and with plenty of time left the score had closed to EAST 35 HIRAM 30!!!

SUDDENLY we had a BALLGAME!!! HIRAM has a big strong QB and #24 is just plain FAST!!! Between these two guys they made the EAST “D” miss all night!! If #24 got the corner HE WAS GONE! FAST!!!

The ref’s had several situations where they made mistakes none of which were game changers, on a HIRAM breakout run where #24 made his moves and was gone for a long TD the Ref had the flag in his hand ready to call an OBVIOUS holding but put the flag back in his pocket…????

Later in the game the refs game HIRAM two (2) chances to go for it on 4th down as they lost track of the downs and NEVER changed from 3rd to 4th until AFTER HIRAM ran the play…by the scoreboard and the chain marker it stayed at 3rd but in reality it was the 1st 4th down. They didn’t make it and ran a 2nd 4th down play!!!

Then late in the game east scored a TD…from about the HIRAM 25 / 30 yard line…Flag from a ref on the far side (HIRAM side) play called back, EAST scores AGAIN on the same play TD…play called back again (same Ref)…LOL! 3rd try EAST scores again!! This time no flag!!!

HIRAM kept coming back but the EAST “D” finally got a turnover as they intercepted and returned for a TD, EAST needed a game where they had to play 4 quarters and hopefully this will be a good game for EAST to look back at as they prepare for ROME this coming week in “THE BONEYARD”…

The shutout streak is over for the “D” but a win is a win…
the RAIDERS are still UNDEFEATED at 6 / 0!!! and the “D” is till averaging a VERY respectable 7.8 pts per game!!!

Hey “Cannon” you forgot to tell about the sprinklers. :-) I think it was late in the 3rd and the sprinklers came on for about 5 sec. I was sitting right behind where the O line was seated when it happend. No. 51 or 52 was sitting in a chair that was right on top of one sprinkler heads and when it hit him he would have made Michael Jordan proud. I didn’t think a guy that big could jump that high from the seated position. Everyone was laughing their arses off. I think I missed the next two plays from wiping the tears from my eyes.
Great game for the Raiders and one that they needed like “Cannon” pointed out. Next up, Rome at the “Boneyard”. GO RAIDERS!!!!!

Congrats on win number 6 East. Let’s go out and get ready for those Wolves next Friday. I also want to thank the East wrestling team of a few years back coached by Moistner and led by Reddington, Bishop, Braun, Rutherford, Racine, Petroski and the rest. These were the group that made everyone aware of who “EAST” was. It seems as though once they began that tradition, ALL of the teams from “East” began to show major improvement. Proud to say that I still follow the Raiders from “EAST”.

That was hilarious! those guys were stunned for a sec, then like you said moved faster than they knew they could!!! LOL!!

On another AJC blog an ALLATOONA fan (bucfan) posted…

“Hey Cannon, what happened to your East Paulding might D last night, giving up 30 points to Hiram? Wow doesn’t bode well for your game against my Bucs in a few weeks. We’re coming to getcha Cannon!”

Well first he better do the math because even WITH last nights numbers the EAST “D” is still only allowing a VERY stingy 7.8 pts per game!!! I’ll give you those 7.8 points RIGHT now and see if that’s enough to beat the RAIDERS in “THE BONEYARD” on Nov. 9th!!!

BUT as I told him (along with RealisticFAN) be careful what you wish for…

there is an OLD movie about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor…and at the end the Japanese commander, Admiral Yamamoto, is quoted as saying…“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve”!!!

Think of the HIRAM game as EAST awakening!!! … ALLATOONA get’s to face the giant on Nov. 9th!!

@”Cannon” Please tell me you pointed out to bucfan that his team gave up 20 to WOODLAND of all teams and 13 to New Manchester both who have a combined score of 0 against East.

@ Cannon Rules:

Your Allatoona fan might not to look too far forward to the East game. North is the week before and they could do alot of damage to the Bucs playoff picture. I know East was looking ahead last night and it showed on D. Hopefully North took the emotion out of Rome with their classic win last night. Shows how important special teams are. Hats off to Hiram…never quit and have some real talent in #9, #24 and #22. Next few weeks could make things interesting.

I guess we’ll find out Nov 9th…We gave up those points against Woodland with 2nd and 3rd string in guys, Coach Varner is smart in getting his younger players experience. One thing i know for sure, we will outcoach you come Nov 9th. Either way, you guys enjoy it now, because the Bucs are young and are loaded at the freshman/soph level. Of course i’ve seen your younger kids and they are good too, it’s gonna be a very interesting couple of years Raider fans.

WR would be fine if they had the level feeder system NSHS enjoys every year.

Let me add NSHS has a solid coaching staff and they are well aware of the years of WR beatings in the 70’s 80’s 90’s. NHS is a solid program now under Kevin who is a good man.

Bucfan, Seniors are for real, they where a major part of building Allatoona football and backing down to talk about freshman and soph…, not good. Our success has been downplayed, we are th new kids on the block(as they say). one game at a time, all we see.

For future reference, talk loud with confidence or go unwritten. GO BUCKS

@bucfan….you’re not helping your argument much with the second/third string comment. Our second/third string played against Woodland and N.Manchester and gave up zip. As a matter of fact our 2/3 scored against both teams starters. Care to try again, it’s 4th and looooonnnnggg for

The WR-Demons are a very good team. NSWR can’t take them lightly in 2012. I see a score near 21-10, NSWR. The Demons will make some noise in the play-offs.

The next two years will favor the Demons. I think!!

East and Allatoona BOTH have a lot a lot between now and Nov 9th.

East has Rome, South and Lithia Springs. I’ve seen all three play and they all play to the funs gun. Yes East should handle LS fairly easily, but the other two both have danger written all over them. South is a pretty physical team and won’t back down but coaching is a bit suspect in terms if play calling and they are not overly athletic.

Rome isn’t big but they execute well, have two small but quick tough running backs and a tall lanky QB that is a definitely leader. Rome’s wingt is the type offense that always gives East defenses problems. (TCC, Marist, Grayson).

For Allatoona they still have a tough VR squad and pesky Hiram team to dispense of before they go on the road to face the much improved North Paulding team that puts points on the board against anyone and if they can find some defense they might be primed for catching the bucs looking forward a week to the big trip to the boneyard.

All in all what do I see happening : East winning out but having a scare against Rome. I see Allatoona dropping their road game at North and coming into the boneyard needing to win to avoid a three way tie with North and Rome for the number 2 seed.

Just so the record is clear. cameron Johnson from Clarke Central played in the game against Heritage after being ejected the week before. This needs to be looked into.
