    For the third year in a row, Oliver Springs will take on Spring City for the Clinch Valley Middle School Football Conference championship.

  • Tigers find a way at Harriman,...

    With star player Isiah Jones serving a one game suspension, and several other key players banged up, not a lot of people gave the Rockwood Tigers a shot at winning at Harriman’s Wallace-Black Field Friday night.

    Rockwood’s players didn’t get that memo, however, as they put together a gutsy performance in downing the Blue Devils, 23-14.

  • Kingston knocks off Greenback in...

    Kingston head football coach Brian Pankey would prefer not to go into overtime. He would also prefer not to lose. That's why he wasn't complaining after Friday night's 48-42 overtime win against Greenback at Dr. Nat Sugarman Memorial Field.

    “I'm proud of our kids for the way they fought back in the second half,” he said. “The defense didn't play as good the first half, but came back out the second half and played a lot better.”

  • Midway rallies past Oliver...

    The two first-year head coaches in Roane County, Ryen Minton at Midway and Larry Green at Oliver Springs, met Friday at D. J. Brittan Field in Oliver Springs with both trying for their team’s second win of the year

    After trailing 14-0 early in the second quarter, Midway struck for 40 points to win going away, 40-17 over the Bobcats.

    Green's Bobcats fall to 1-5 with the loss and are facing a tough stretch of region games the next several weeks. Oliver Springs will host Austin East Friday before visiting Rockwood next week.

  • It’s time for more county...

    The 2015 regular season reaches the halfway point Friday night, and Roane County fans can celebrate by not leaving the county borders to watch any of Roane’s five teams in action this week.

    Those five teams will participate in only three games, as two of the contests feature in-county games. Only Kingston plays an out-of-county foe when the Jackets host Greenback at Dr. Nat Sugarman Memorial Field.

  • National Hunting and Fishing Day...
