    Tired of high gas prices?

    Well there’s nothing you can do about it, but at least Friday night’s football games are all close to home as Roane County fans should have less than a 30 minute drive to see their favorite team play.

    This week’s schedule is full of area rivalry games with Harriman traveling to Wartburg, Oliver Springs hosting Coalfield, and Rockwood traveling to Kingston in this week’s showdown between county schools.

    Pastor Mike Miller describes himself as an average football fan.

    But when it comes to his Cedar Grove Baptist Church congregation, Miller says many of its members are a lot more than just casual when it comes to their fondness of football.

    “We have a lot of people who are passionate football fans,” Miller said.

    OAKDALE-Hollis Eble Field has seen its share of good times and bad times for the Oakdale football team over the years. For a whole half Friday night, Hollis Eble Field was the place for some happy Eagle fans. They were in a 14-14 deadlock with the 2007 Region 2-A Champion Midway Green Wave. However, during the next 12 minutes, Midway scored 27 straight points to pull away for a 41-21 win and avoid an upset to a vastly improved Oakdale team.

    The Cherokee Middle School Yellow Jackets improved to 3-0 in the district and 3-1 overall with a thrilling 28-22 three-overtime win at Rockwood.

    Cherokee had grabbed a 14-0 lead late in the second quarter, but Rockwood began its comeback with a last-second touchdown just before halftime.

    The Tigers tied the game at 14 with an early third-quarter TD, then the two teams then had to battle through three overtimes before Cherokee got the winning score on a 10-yard run from James Daley.

    It really wasn’t the kind of a game in the first half that Midway head coach Craig Moser wanted to see, but after some halftime adjustments, Moser’s Green Waves sped past Oakdale 41-21 to pick up region win number one.

    Moser was happy to get out of Oakdale with the win especially after the two teams were tied at halftime 14-14.

    The first two weeks of the season have been great as county rivalries and non region contests have got football fans back in the groove. Now, however, it's time to turn it up a notch as region play starts Friday night for Kingston, Midway and Rockwood, and all three teams would like nothing more than to exit Friday night at the top of their respective region standings.

    In Region 2-A, Craig Moser's Midway Green Wave will look to take the first step in defending their region title when they travel to Oakdale.
