  • Tigers take down South Greene,...

    After dropping an embarrassing 21-0 decision to Sequoyah in their season opener, Rockwood head coach John Webb challenged his team last week in practice to become the physical football team people are accustomed to seeing in Rockwood.

    The challenge worked as the Tigers looked like a totally different team Friday night in dismantling South Greene, 35-7, at Civitan Field.

  • Whitwell downs Midway, 34-22


    The Midway Green Wave hosted the Whitwell Tigers Friday night in their first home game of the 2011 season. The Green Wave were looking to rebound from a tough loss at Lookout Valley a week before, and start a two game homestand on a high note.

  • Jackets, Devils look to build...

    Weather delays and fantastic finishes were the highlights of last week's opening to the 2011 football season.

    All five teams will be in action again this week, and most fans, coaches and players are hoping this Friday's games will be just as exciting without the weather delays.

    The big game in Roane County this week will feature the two teams that picked up victories in dramatic fashion last week as Kingston hosts Harriman.

    Midway, Rockwood and Oliver Springs will also be in action this week and all three will be searching for their first win.

  • Dykes, Mason on the run after...

    In his five years as Harriman’s mayor, Chris Mason has done a lot of good for the residents of the city.

    He has worked hard to revitalize downtown Harriman and make city government work more efficiently. He has also worked hard in changing how other people view Harriman.

    However, all of Mason’s hard work might have gone up in smoke with one word that appeared in the Wednesday’s edition of the Roane County News. That word was KINGSTON as Mason picked the Yellow Jackets in Goose’s Gurus to defeat the Blue Devils in Friday’s match-up between the two bitter county rivals.
