CANTON — Cambridge shut out Creekview to remain unbeaten with a 7-0 victory Friday night at the Grizzly Den.

It was the Bears' first victory over the Grizzlies in 10 meetings.

For the first 37 minutes of the game, neither team could put any points on the board.

Both teams traded fumble turnovers and continuously punted the ball, forcing each side to drive the length of the field.

It was not until early in the fourth quarter when Cambridge quarterback Zach Harris connected on a 23-yard pass to Will Harris for the lone score of the game with 10:59 remaining.

Creekview (3-1, 0-1 Region 7AAAAAA) was stopped by Cambridge (3-0, 1-0) on fourth down on four different occasions.

"Credit to (Cambridge), they had a great defensive plan," Creekview coach Trevor Williams said. "A play or two there could have been a different result, but when you're playing a region game like this, you've got to make those plays."

Quarterback Mason Hicks was the highlight for Creekview, combining for 166 yards of offense (94 passing, 72 rushing)

Williams said he was proud of his players, but he stressed that the need to get better was evident.

"We need to get better with preparation, execution and staying penalty-free on defense," he said. "I'm proud of our guys' fight and effort. We just couldn't make the plays when we needed to."

The Grizzlies had another high penalty game, getting penalized 10 times for 82 yards.

Creekview will have a bye next week before hosting archrival Sequoyah on Oct. 1.
