MARIETTA, Ga. — The Pope Greyhounds, led by quarterback Taylor Wolf, faced off against the Northview Titans and came away the victors, 28-24 Friday night.
The Titans came into the game with a 2-1 record as Pope came into the game with a 0-3 record.
Pope took a 7-0 lead on the Titans on a pass from Wolf to receiver Logan Carr and from that point on the Greyhounds did not give up the lead.
Wolf had a very good game completing 15 of 38 passes for 148 yards and rushing for close to 30. Carr was also right up there with him rushing close to 45 yards while gaining over 50 yards receiving.
The other big story of the night was penalties. Both coaches received unsportsmanlike penalties, with many holding and pass interference flags being thrown on both sides of the ball.
The Titans started to make a comeback at the end of the fourth quarter down by only four points but came up short when the Greyhounds’ Taylor Waddilove intercepted the ball which ended the game.
After the game, Greyhounds Head Coach Matt Kemper said, “Logan Carr had one of his best games at Pope. He is a team leader and a lot of the players on the team look up to him.”
Overall it was a very tight game, but the Greyhounds came out with the win beating the Titans of Northview 28-24.
