  • Roane County teams return to...

    Week nine has Roane County football teams playing region games — three at home and two on the road.
    Oneida travels to Harriman in another Region 2-1A game for senior night, while Austin-East visits Rockwood in a Region 2-2A game for senior night, also, and Greenback visits Midway for a Region 2-1A game.
    Kingston goes to Alcoa in a Region 3-3A game, while Oliver Springs visits Tellico Plains in a Region 2-2A game.

  • A lot is riding on week 9...

    As the regular season winds down, the games on the 2016 schedule increase in importance. Such is the case Friday night as all five Roane County teams will take on region foes with a lot riding on the outcome.
    In Region 2-1A, Harriman is sitting pretty for a playoff berth, but the Blue Devils aren't there yet. At 6-1 overall and 2-1 in region play, the Blue Devils are still in the hunt for a region title, but they must secure a playoff berth first and they can take a big step toward achieving that goal Friday night when they host Oneida.

  • Rockwood shuts out Union County...

    "It was a good game. The girls started out nervous. They settled down and came to play," said Rockwood Lady Tiger Soccer Coach Don Maples, after his team shut out Union County 6-0 in the opening match of the District 3A/AA Tournament at Mike "Brillo" Miller Sports Complex Monday night.
    The Lady Tigers advanced into the second round Tuesday night, as they hosted the winner of the Pigeon Forge at Greenback game. In other action, Grace Christian blanked Concord Christian 9-0, and Gatlinburg-Pittman edged Carter 2-1.

    Nate Brackett scored on a 2-yard run with 6:57 left in the third quarter to rally the Rockwood Tigers from a 14-13 halftime deficit to post a 21-14 Region 2-2A victory over the Oliver Springs Bobcats Friday evening to keep their playoff hopes alive.
    The Tigers led 13-0 after the first quarter, but the Bobcats scored 14 second quarter points for the 1-point halftime lead.

  • Harriman Blue Devils record big...

    It was a make or break night for Midway last Friday at Harriman. A Midway win could have thrown Region 2A for a loop as far as the playoff standings were concerned.
    For Harriman it was a game they had to win to stay in the chase for a region title. The Blue Devils already have a loss to Coalfield and another loss would have hurt their chances for the title and maybe even making the playoffs.

  • Kingston Yellow Jackets sting...

    Kingston’s Maurice Lane had a huge game Friday night, as the Yellow Jacket senior running back scored four of his team’s five touchdowns in a 35-15 homecoming victory over York Institute.
    “Mo has been banged up this year and has been a little down,” Kingston head coach Brian Pankey said. “I just told him to do what he’s been blessed to do and that’s run the football. He did that tonight.”
    Lane finished the evening with 95 yards and 2 TDs rushing on only nine carries while adding 47 yards and 2 TDs on two receptions.

  • OSMS blanks Coalfield in season...

    Taylor scored on runs of 6 and 89 yards, while Galyon scored on runs of 13, 16 and 29 yards.
    Victor Guzman rushed for 25 yards on five carries and scored on a 4-yard run, while Gavin Hill carried 10 times for 79 yards and added a 3-yard TD run.
