    Ever since Midway beat Oneida in week six of the regular season the talk has centered on a TSSAA Class A quarterfinal match-up with Hamton and now it’s here.

    Midway (11-1) has been an unstoppable offensive force for much of the season and they will be meeting an equally impressive squad in the Bulldogs.

    Friday’s contest played out entirely different than their first meeting on Oct. 19 when Midway rushed for 474 yards in picking up an easy 42-20 win.

    Oliver Springs senior guard Dan Schultz said he had been waiting ever since last year’s season-ending 59-51 loss to Harriman to get back on the court in a game that mattered.

    That night was Tuesday and Schultz put on a show as the Bobcat leader scored a career-high 38 points in leading Oliver Springs to an 89-64 victory over Sequoyah in TSSAA Hall of Fame action.

  • Roane State women split weekend...

    Friday’s meeting will be the second meeting of the season between the two schools as Midway won 42-20 at Harriman on Oct. 19.
