Chattahoochee shook up Region 6-AAAAAA with a stunning upset of No. 5 West Forsyth, 29-28, Friday at the Cougars’ field.
Travis Marshall scored on an 8-yard scramble and then found a diving Collin Lisa on the edge of the end zone for a winning two-point conversion with 38 seconds to play.
The Wolverines (7-1, 4-1) reached the Chattahoochee 34 on their ensuing drive, but Timmy Hartshorn’s 51-yard field goal was no good as time expired.
Lisa caught two touchdowns from Marshall, who finished with 227 yards passing and three touchdowns for the Cougars (5-3, 3-3).
West Forsyth entered the game averaging 41 points per game, but found itself in a 7-7 defensive battle in the second half. Four times, the Wolverines had drives fizzle inside Chattahoochee territory, resulting in three missed field goals and a turnover on downs.
The miscues allowed the Cougars to stay in the game, even though they were getting dominated in time of possession and total yards.
Jake Weiczorek scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including a 10-yard reception that put the Wolverines up 28-21 with four minutes left.
The Cougars answered with a 10-play, 65-yard drive capped by Marshall’s touchdown run off of a play-action scramble.
Chattahoochee coach Terry Crowder elected to go for two. Marshall rolled out to his right and delivered a strike to Lisa on the side of the end zone.
Momo Camara scored two touchdowns for West Forsyth, who drops back into a tie with Johns Creek in the region. The Wolverines beat Johns Creek 37-16 in Week 6.
C.J. Leggett caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from Marshall on a screen for Chattahoochee, which jumps back into the thick of the race for one of the four playoff bids out of the region
Chattahoochee hosts Lambert next week, West Forsyth returns home to face South Forsyth with a chance to clinch the region title.
