Cartersville had already defeated North Murray twice during the regular season. The only question that remained was could the Purple Hurricanes make it three straight over the Mountaineers, who stood in their way of winning the Region 5-AAA championship.

“It’s hard just to beat the same team twice let alone three times,” said a leery coach Mike Tobin hours before the Canes and North Murray were to play once again. “It’s just human nature to take a team you’ve already beaten twice for granted. On the other hand, if I am the team that has lost both times I’m going to make it sure it doesn’t happen a third time.”

The Canes made sure that any type of revenge North Murray was looking for had to wait until next season with their clutch-free throws late in the fourth quarter.

Ryan Davis and A.J. Mosby were perfect at the free throw line, thus enabling Cartersville (26-1) to defeat North Murray once again, this time by a score of 58-49, and win the Region 5-AAA championship.

Davis was 4-for-4 and Mosby was 3-for-3 from the free throw line as the seconds slowly ticked off the fourth quarter clock in a game played at Sonoraville High School.
