On Friday, Sept. 27, the Dubs football team traveled north to Milton as they took on the Cambridge Bears for their second region game of the season. The Cambridge students packed the stands for their homecoming game, but the Warriors spoiled their night as they came back to Buckhead with the 16-14 win. The defense hunkered down while the Bears had a shot to complete the comeback at the end of the game.

Senior running back T.K. Mack has been an issue for opposing defenses all season long and Friday night was no different. The offensive line opened up holes in the Bears’ defense, allowing Mack to rush for 188 yards on the night. Senior quarterback Wiley Hartley also had a big night on the ground as he ran for two touchdowns. “Our success on the ground was due to the fight of the linemen,” said Hartley. “They were absolutely electric all night long.”

Senior defensive lineman Davis Bell was a pest for the Cambridge back field throughout the game. Although it was his first game back from a pretty serious leg injury, it did not seem to slow him down. He ended the game with 2.5 sacks and 2 tackles for loss. “Our bye week was crucial in helping me recover while missing as little time as possible,” he said. “I felt very well-rested which is why I was able to make an impact on the game.”

The defense is getting it going, showing that they are able to play as a unit. Senior safety Tyree Hyde was a machine as he led the team with a season-high seven tackles. To end the game, junior Syre Stewart and senior Jamie Hare teamed up to bat down a prayer thrown from the Cambridge quarterback. “This was definitely our best game as a team as we seem to be hitting our stride,” said junior linebacker Armari Hodges. “Hopefully we will be able to keep this up as we get deeper into region play.”

The Dubs come home with a huge win over Cambridge as they enter their own homecoming week. The three and one Dubs take on the three and two Northview Titans at home on Friday, Oct. 4. Key will be preventing the Titans from being homecoming spoilers — like the Dubs gloriously did to the Cambridge Bears.
