North Cobb (4-2) squares off against North Paulding (5-1) this Friday at 7:30 PM. North Cobb might be a bit distressed seeing as how its point totals have been consistently dropping over the past three games.
Victory was within reach last week, but North Cobb ultimately lost 27 - 21 to McEachern. McEachern was expected to win (it is ranked 20th in the state, 34 places ahead of North Cobb), but it was still a bitter blow.
Meanwhile, North Paulding's encounter with Cherokee three weeks ago was a 32-point stomp, but the result last week was anything but. North Paulding was close but not close enough last game as it fell 16 - 14 to Hillgrove. The team got a solid performance out of junior Ross Malmgren (he threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns); unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the win. Malmgren also tagged on a 35-yard TD reception in the second quarter. Senior Lucas Mays was in the mix too, providing North Paulding with two touchdowns.
The last time they met, North Cobb was the 42 - 10 victor. The rematch might be a little tougher for it since the team will be on North Paulding's home field this time. We'll soon find out whether that makes a difference or not.
