The rest of the evening didn&rsquo;t go as well, however, as Harriman&rsquo;s boys and girls dropped games as did the Oliver Springs Bobcats.</p> Jackets pick up second win, 17-14 http://www.roanecounty.com/content/jackets-pick-second-win-17-14 <img src="http://www.roanecounty.com/sites/www.roanecounty.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/kingston_3.jpg" alt="Kingston’s Gabe Shillings prepares to knock home a 21-yard field goal in Friday’s 17-14 victory over Sequoyah." title="Kingston’s Gabe Shillings prepares to knock home a 21-yard field goal in Friday’s 17-14 victory over Sequoyah." align="left" hspace="6" />It wasn't pretty at times, but the Kingston Yellow Jackets picked up their second win of the season Friday night with a hard fought 17-14 victory over Sequoyah at Dr. Nat Sugarman Memorial Field. Muddy field conditions made it hard for either team to move freely, but Sequoyah's Power-I offense seemed more suited for a sloppy field. Kingston's defense, however, held the Chiefs to 154 yards rushing on 36 carries. Sequoyah added 60 yards passing to end the evening with 214 total yards.
