The Eagles led 21-19 at the half, but Cross Keys scored five times in the fourth quarter to pull away.
Adedayo started the quarter with a 31-yard touchdown run and then Samuel McDade followed with a 36-yard touchdown pass to make the score 32-21.
North Cobb Christian answered with a 47-yard touchdown pass from Zach Bollinger to Josue Ortiz to cut the lead to 32-29, but the Indians answered with a 15-yard touchdown run by Dominique Wilson and a 35-yard interception return by Patrick Huff to seal the victory.
McDade finished the game with three receptions for 105 yards and two touchdowns for Cross Keys.
Bollinger and the Eagles offense just couldn’t keep up.
Bollinger finished the game 7 of 22 for 179 yards and three touchdown passes. Unfortunately for North Cobb Christian, he also threw three interceptions — two in the decisive fourth quarter.
“They did some different things,” Eagles coach Scott Ryle said. “They got some different matchups. He had some good passes that unfortunately went the other way, but it’s all about match ups.”
The Eagles’ John Towne had 122 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
Towne put the Eagles on the board first with an 85-yard touchdown reception and North Cobb Christian would lead 7-6 at the end of the first quarter.
Towne scored again in the second quarter on a 34-yard reception. Bollinger added a quarterback sneak with 3:13 to play before the half to extend North Cobb Christian’s to 21-12.
In a recurring theme for the Eagles, a number of other players went down with injuries during the game.
“We’re having a hard time staying healthy which is unfortunate,” said Ryle.
