The Chattooga Indians took on the Calhoun Yellow Jackets Friday night at the Little Big Horn Stadium. The Indians played an excellent ballgame, but it was Mother Nature that that stole the show. The first half of the game included a torrential downpour, a 30 minute lightning delay and an hour long power outage. The lights were restored and play resumed to finish the first half and the Yellow Jackets were on top with a score of 17 – 0. Chattooga had scored a field goal late in the second quarter, but their points were taken back for an illegal procedure call. When play resumed after half time, Calhoun scored a field goal and Chattooga then put their first points on the board when quarterback Rashad Ramsey hit Spencer London with a 76 yard touchdown pass. The two point conversion attempt failed, but Chattooga gained momentum and the game began to be a heated battle. Calhoun scored again on their next drive and after back to back personal foul calls on the Jackets the Indians were in another position to score. Indian Sophomore Nathan Schuster caught a 12 yard touchdown pass with a little over 3 minutes of play left in the game. The two point conversion was unsuccessful. The final score was Calhoun 27 Chattooga 12. The Indians played a heart and soul filled game and showed a tremendous amount of sportsmanship and character. Chattooga players and coaches are to be congratulated for their efforts.
Chattooga will travel to Adairsville next Friday night. The Trion Bulldogs will travel to Bowden.
