    On Friday night, the Midway Green Wave traveled to take on the Greenback Cherokees, who have been on a roll.

    Over the last three weeks, the Midway offense hasn’t been as productive as they were early in the season. While they scored 37 or more in four of their first five games, they haven’t reached those gaudy numbers in the last four weeks.

    That streak continued against the Cherokees.

  • Bobcats fall in hard fought game

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats met rival Coalfield Friday night at D.J. Brittan Field for the first time in three years and despite losing 41-21, the game was much closer than the score showed.

    After the last Coalfield touchdown in the first half, a 10-yard strike from quarterback Parker McKinney to Drake Miklas that made the score 20-0 the Jackets looked to have the Bobcats on the ropes with 49 second left before halftime.

    Oliver Springs didn’t get that memo.

  • Quest wins ISA World Series
  • More than just coaching problems?

    Well, the Volunteers took a bye week, and so did I on this column, but just like the Vols this past weekend I’m firing it back up.

    As everyone already knows things couldn’t have went much worse on Saturday. Sure, the Vols could have took a loss in blowout fashion but of course the Vols lost on the last play of the game with a chance to tie things up then kick an extra point to win.
