    The Oliver Springs Bobcats traveled to Greenback to take on the Greenback Cherokees, one of the top teams in the state.

    Greenback has been dominant this season, allowing 12 or less points in their last three games.

    On Friday night, the Bobcats were able to put an end to that streak, but they were overwhelmed by the Cherokees in a 48-15 loss.

  • Jackets spoil Tigers’ 8th grade...

    The Rockwood Middle School Tigers had their eighth-grade night on Thursday as they played host to the Yellow Jackets of Cherokee Middle School.

    The Tigers got off to a quick start, but the Yellow Jackets responded and never looked back as Cherokee picked up the 36-14 victory.

    Some night players have really great outings and that was the case on Thursday night as Cherokee’s quarterback Kain Collns had himself a night.

    The Oliver Springs Middle School Bobcats special teams became the “Wizards of OZ” as they showed up and showed out jumping to a 14-0 lead without running a single offensive play on the way to a 52-14 victory.
    The outsized Blue Devils took the opening kickoff and were pinned deep within their own territory and unable to get anything going, forcing the first punt of the game.

  • District play starts for Rockwood

    It will be a battle of jungle predators tonight as the Rockwood Tigers host the Meigs Tigers at Civitan Field in week five football action.

    The game will be the start of Rockwood’s district games, the most important games on the schedule as the outcomes of these games will decide playoff berths and seedings.

    “We’ve had a good week of practice,” Rockwood Coach John Webb said, “that’s important right now, to practice well and try to get better every day.

    “I think we’ve done that in some regards.”

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets return home this evening to host the Northview Academy Cougars in a 3A district matchup.

    “We’ve had a good week of practice,” Yellow Jacket Coach Brian Pankey said, “the kids are excited to be playing at home after a three week stretch of away games.

    “It’s also a big district game for us.”

    Kingston is coming off a 49-28 win against the Rockwood Tigers last Friday. The Yellow Jackets showed a balanced attack during the contest with the offense and defense performing well.

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats will be traveling deep into Loudon County this evening to face the Greenback Cherokees for their first road game and district matchup.

    “This will be our first district game against the number four team in the state,” Bobcat Coach Larry Green said.

    Injuries have been a problem for Oliver Springs so far this season, contributing largely to its 0-3 start on the season.

    An open week two weeks ago gave the Bobcats some time to heal and get those injured players back in the line-up.
