Etowah fell to Pleasant Grove, 40-0, in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs on Friday (Nov. 8) at PGHS. 

“We knew they had a great team when we saw them on film,” said Etowah coach Drew Noles. “[I’ve] been coaching a long time, and we know by now a great team when we see one. They have got athletes all over, their quarterback can run the football well and their defensive line is also very good. They just manhandled us tonight.”
