A high school football state championship game ended in the worst way possible following a questionable touchdown call by the officials.
In the Georgia Class 3A title game between Cedar Grove and Sandy Creek — Cedar Grove led 17–14 with 59 seconds remaining. Sandy Creek, however, was driving and had the ball deep in opposing territory and lined up for a play on third-and-goal from the 2-yard line at Center Parc Stadium in Atlanta.
The quarterback would take the snap and run behind a stream of blockers to his right. That side would fail miserably as he clearly missed not getting into the end zone. However, officials still signaled for a TD.
The TD and extra point gave Sandy Creek a 21–17 lead with less than a minute remaining.
That result would hold and it gave the team its fourth state title in the past 15 years after winning in 2009, 2010 and 2012.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
