MILTON, Ga. The Cambridge Bears nearly knocked off the top team in their 7-AAAAA sub-region, falling 27-24 to visiting Creekview last Friday night, Oct. 18, on a last-minute field goal.

The Bears rallied twice in the second half to tie the Grizzlies, pulling even for the last time on a 30-yard field by Clayton Hammer late in the final period.

The Grizzlies broke two big plays on their winning drive, a long run after a penalty backed them up and an 18-yard pass completion on third-and-9.

J.D. White returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a Cambridge touchdown, but Creekview connected on three touchdown passes in the second period to take a 21-14 halftime lead.

Cambridge quarterback Brian Moore passed 9 yards to Hunter Smith to tie the game 14-14, and connected with Christian Johnson on a 48-yard TD in the third period to pull the Bears even after three quarters.

The Bears (1-2, 2-5) can clinch a spot in one of the region's four crossover games to determine state playoff qualifiers with a win at North Springs (0-3, 1-6) Friday. All four crossover games will be hosted by teams from the Cambridge sub-region.
