  • Tigers run roughshod over Bears

    Powered by a strong running game that featured a pair of 100-yard rushers, the Rockwood Tigers cruised to a 33-13 victory at Tellico Plains Friday night.

    Ryan McCain led the Tigers with 108 yards and 2 TDs on 16 carries while Joe Ashburn added 103 yards and a score on 15 attempts. As a team, the Tigers ended the evening with 293 yards rushing on 57 carries. All five of Rockwood’s touchdowns came on the ground.

    Midway picked up its first win in regional play and improved to 2-1 Friday night with a 37-14 win against Oakdale.

    After losing to Rockwood by one point in Week 1 and snagging a 7-6 victory over Monterey last week, winning by such a large margin was a welcomed change for the banged-up Green Waves.

  • Blue Devils set for crash course...

    The Harriman Blue Devils have their home opener tonight against the Coalfield Yellow Jackets.

    It’s two games into the season. It’s still early too tell, but Harriman has thus far performed above expectations after losing the majority of its starters to graduation last season.

    The Devils hung tough in a 28-13 loss against Roane County rival Kingston in week one and bounced back to overwhelm the Wartburg Bulldogs, 37-26, in week two.

  • Tigers set to bait the Bears in...

    The Rockwood Tigers stay on the road this Friday as they travel to Tellico Plains for a week three match-up.

    Rockwood is coming off a 27-18 loss to the Sweetwater Wildcats.

    After being held scoreless in the first half, the Tigers (1-1) made a push to come back against Sweetwater, thanks to scores from Caleb Bowen, Ryan McCain, and Nate Brackett. Although it was a big push, there wasn’t enough time to come all the way back.

    There was enough impetus generated in the play during the second half that it could potentially be built on a week later.

  • Kingston faces Austin-East...

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets will visit the Austin-East Roadrunners this evening for a week three match-up.

    Both teams are coming into the game with unblemished 2-0 records. They also are similar in the fact that Kingston has outscored opponents 87-16 while the Roadrunners are 71-20.

    The Yellow Jackets looked like they found new life in the second half of last week’s contest with the Oliver Springs Bobcats.

  • Midway looks to keep riding the...

    After starting the season with two road games, the Midway Green Wave will finally open at home tonight against the Oakdale Eagles.

    To say the season has been exciting so far for the Green Wave would be an understatement.

    Midway started the season losing a close one, 41-40, in an offensive slugfest with the Rockwood Tigers.

    The performance showed that the Green Wave could potentially hang in there with the big boys and last week’s game was another close one.

    Midway beat a tough Monterey Wildcats team in a defensive struggle, 7-6.

  • Panthers dominate Bobcats, 7-1

    By Damichael Cole


    The Stone Memorial Panthers have proven to be juggernauts this season and on Monday, Oliver Springs was the next opponent in their way.

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats came into the game with a 2-2 record. Both of their losses had come by one goal each, but this game was different.

    The Panthers defeated the Bobcats 7-1 to remain undefeated.
