  • Jackets down Devils despite...

    Although it wasn’t pretty at times, the Kingston Yellow Jackets beat the visiting Harriman Blue Devils, 28-13, Friday evening in Kingston to open the regular football season.

    “As many starters as we lost after last year and come over here and play Kingston like we did,” Blue Devil Coach Travis said, “I’m proud of my boys.

    “Do I wish the game had a different outcome, most certainly.

    “Our kids play a good, hard fought game against a good triple ‘A’ school.

  • Tigers hang on to edge Midway

    In a wild start to the 2017 season, the Rockwood Tigers held off a late Midway rally to pick up a 41-40 victory Friday night at Civitan Field.

    The Green Wave trailed 41-26 midway through the final period before scoring two late touchdowns to cut the gap to one. Midway also had the ball deep in Tiger territory with less than two minutes to play before Rockwood’s Zander Price picked off a defelected pass to seal the win for the Tigers.

    For Rockwood, the victory might have come at a steep price as the Tigers suffered a rash of injuries.

  • Oliver Springs’ late rally falls...

    To quote the poem “To a Mouse” by Scottish poet Robert Burns, “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Such was the case for the Oliver Springs Bobcats in their season-opener against the Bledsoe County Warriors as the ‘Cats rallied from a 21-0 first quarter deficit to tie the game early in the fourth quarter, but miscues and misfires on both sides of the ball proved to spell “d-o-o-m” for the Bobcats as Bledsoe County persevered for the 28-21 win.

  • Hannibal carries Tigers to...

    The middle school football season started Thursday evening with the Rockwood Tigers edging the Oneida Indians, 16-14, in Oneida.

    Rockwood was down 14-8 and facing fourth-and-7 on their own 47-yard line in the waning moments of the fourth quarter.

    A fumble by the Indian offense was recovered on the Tigers’ 44-yard line by Rockwood’s Dakota Waldo. The next three plays only moved the offense three yards.

  • Green Wave clips LaFollette, 26-6

    The American heavy metal band Trivium once released a song called “In Waves”.

    The Midway Green Wave might have been outmanned in numbers, but more than made up for it with a lethal combination of offensive efficiency and a powerful trio of running backs by scoring “in waves” to earn a smash-mouth 26-6 win over the Owls.

    Midway Assistant Coach Scott Mason was elated to see his Midway Middle Waves earn their first win of the season. “It was a good game on both sides,” he said.
