Oct. 29—A touchdown pass on the final play of the game helped Murray County avoid a shutout in a road game against Haralson County Friday night.

Quarterback Aaron Flood found Nate Perry in the corner of the end zone to get Murray on the board as the final seconds ticked away in a 45-7 loss.

Murray County (0-9, 0-5 Region 7-2A) trailed 21-0 after the first quarter against Haralson County (3-6, 2-3 Region 7-2A) in a Region 7-2A game.

Haralson pushed the lead to 38-0 by the halftime and had the lead to 45-0 at the end of three quarters as a running clock was implemented.
