Chattahoochee 33, Centennial 20

By Score Atlanta

Chattahoochee (7-3) won the final playoff spot out of Region 6-AAAAAA with a 33-20 win over Centennial (3-7) that came down to the final two minutes. Down by seven, Centennial quarterback Chase Rosenberg drove the Knights inside the Cougars’ 20 but two penalties pushed the Knights back and they turned it over on downs. The Cougars then put it away on a 65-yard pass from Travis Marshall to Collin Lisa. Rosenberg went 32-for-47 for 347 yards and two passing touchdowns and one rushing score while Marshall was 13-for-22 for 194 and one score.

Centennial opened the scoring in the first quarter when Rosenberg dove in from two yards. The Cougars came back on scoring runs of six yards by C.J. Leggett and three yards by Chase Nelson. In the third, Rosenberg hit Alex Prescott on a nine-yard touchdown pass, but the Knights got a celebration penalty and missed the extra point after a bad snap.

Chattahoochee took a four-point lead on a 32-yard field goal by Adam Abdeilaoui before the Knights recaptured the lead on an eight-yard pass from Rosenberg to Caden Herring. The Cougars seized the lead back in the fourth on a four-yard run by Leggett. Abdeilaoui put Chattahoochee up by seven with a 27-yard field goal with five minutes left.

O yeah…it’s Blue Devil time next week Hoochie girls. No more 3-6 weak sisters.

Early prediction – Norcross wins by 28 pts.

Yes, it was cold out there. What an ugle game! Hooch must have had 15 penalties.

I don’t have a good feeling about next week. if Centennial can move the ball up and down the field, then Norcross will score all night.

A good Hooch victory regardless! Glad to see the RBs more involved, and some other WRs other than #13 involved. Still would like to see QB check off to other WRs, instead of fixating on who the play is called for. If the WR is not open, QB gets happy feet.

Too bad Norcross doesn’t have a better game tonight. I don’t think that the coachs will get much from watching it.

Looking forward to playoffs next week! Anything can happen!

GO HOOCH!!!!!!!!

@candytails. You never know what can happen in a game. Hooch will definitely have to play their best to compete with the Blue Devils, but you know they were 20 point underdogs to West Forsyth and found a way to win. You better not overlook Hooch and be thinking about probable 2nd round match up against Grayson

Actually, Chattahoochee is not 4th seed definitely yet. On the off-chance that West Forsyth loses to Lamber this week, then it comes down to the JC/Alpahretta game. If JC wins, then West Forsyth, Hooch, and Alphareeta will all be 5-2 in the region, which JC takes first at 6-1. A three-way tie thanks to the win over West Forsyth by Chattahoochee, based on the points scored in each game, Alpharetta won by 2 but lost by 21, so they have -19. Chattahoochee won by 1 and lost by 2, so they have -1. West Forsyth on by 21 and lost by 1, so they have +20. Therefore, Johns Creek would be 1st seed, West Forsyth would be second, Hooch would be third (!), and Alpharetta would be fourth. I really don’t want to go up against Norcross next week, so I’m cheering for Johns Creek and Lambert to win their games tonight!

@Hoochband…West Forsyth would have to complete forget they have a game and not show up. Lambert hasn’t been playing very good football lately. Lots of key injuries have hurt them. But I am glad to see that you’re thinking positively. I do think that JC will beat Alpharetta in a close game.
