Losing to a team that had not won a game in their last 31 is a hard pill to digest, frankly nobody wants to be the team that losses to such team however that was the hand that Cedar Shoals was dealt after losing to Winder-Barrow last week. For their effort and win Winder-Barrow was name by some in the state as the “team of the week”. A wounded Jags squad went on the road and knocked off Salem 17-14.
Cedar Shoals (4-5; 2-5) quarterback Darius Jordan-son of former Clemson National Championship winning quarterback Homer Jordan, knew it was on him with solid running back Adrian Washington nursing a high ankle sprain. Jordan was 15-20 for 184 yards and tossed two touchdown passes, one to Chris Middlebrooks and one to Quentin Hall in a 17-14 win over Salem.
Zak Hubery sealed the win for the Jaguars nailing a go-ahead field goal for the 17-14 Cedar Shoals win. The win snapped a 3-game losing streak for the Jaguars. Cedar’s last win was a 28-26 win over Loganville (3-6; 2-5) who knocked off Gainesville (GA) (7-2; 6-1) 46-41 on Friday night. Cedar Shoals is still out of the playoffs but will host crosstown rival Clarke Central (4-5; 4-3) next Friday to close the regular season. Anything can happen when rivals meet.
