Jay Moxey ran for two touchdowns and intercepted two passes for Kell (3-0), and needed his final touchdown late in the fourth quarter to hold off a comeback by the Trojans. The Longhorns play host to Creekview next week.
Lassiter is now 1-2 and is at home next week against Cherokee.
Walton 28, North Cobb 13
In upsetting North Cobb, ranked No. 4 in Class 6A, for its first win of the season, the Walton Raiders may have found answers to some other pressing questions.
Including who might step in to the role left by star running back Tyren Jones, now at Alabama. Walton got 214 yards and three touchdowns from K.K. Brooks.
Walton, playing in Raider Valley for the first time this season, is now 1-2 but has to go back on the road for the next two games, at Woodstock and Cherokee.
