Moore, Smith lead Bears to big win over Spartans



SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. – Brian Moore passed for 332 yards and three touchdowns and ran for two scores as Cambridge rolled to a 52-23 victory last Friday, Oct. 25, at North Springs.

Two of Moore’s TD passes went for 18 and 24 yards to Hunter Smith, who had 11 receptions for 199 yards. Kyle McDougall had the other touchdown reception on a 45-yard catch, with all three TD passes coming in the second half, when the Bears scored 35 points against the Spartans.

Nick Oakes scored the first touchdown for the Bears on a 6-yard run, with Moore also scoring from 6 yards out to make it 17-3 at the half. Moore, who rushed for 52 yards, had a 15-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter, with Zeke Gormley returning an interception for a Cambridge score in the third period.

The Bears play at home Friday night against Sequoyah, needing a victory to force a likely three-way for second in their 7-AAAAA sub-region. Cambridge is 2-3 in the region, 3-5 overall, with the Chiefs 2-1 and 5-3.

Cambridge will be in one of the region’s four crossover games that will determine the four state playoff participants. A loss to Sequoyah would force the Bears to play state-ranked and unbeaten Kell in one of the four games, with Cambridge the home team regardless of opponent.
