  • Midway Middle School game at...

    The Midway Middle School Green Waves had a strange week. They were supposed to play at Norwood Thursday but had the game canceled at the last minute. According to coach Scott Mason, “We were about to leave and they called and didn't want to play. So we just unloaded and stayed home for the night and watched Tennessee.”
    Last Tuesday, Midway did visit Lenoir City for a non conference game. They won it 8-0 on a Malachi Kelsey touchdown run. ìWe'll take it as a win, said Mason, since we didn't get to go to Norwood.î

    Rockwood’s hopes of repeating as Region 2-2A champions took a serious hit Friday night, as a slew of injuries and a relentless Sweetwater ground attack allowed the Wildcats to leave Civilian Field with a 34-13 victory over the Tigers.

    “Our kids played hard, we just got devastated by injuries,” Rockwood head coach John Webb said. “The injuries limited what we could do offensively. We had to cut our play sheet in half. Then it carried over to our defense because we couldn’t put enough pressure on them with our offense.

    "We came out healthy. This was a good win for us," said Kingston Yellow Jacket coach Brian Pankey following his team's 40-7 victory over Cumberland County Friday night on Dr. Nat Sugarman Field to even its record at 1-1. "We controlled the line of scrimmage and they showed a lot of effort tonight."

    Kingston scored on its first possession of the game, driving 53-yards in seven plays to take a 7-0 lead on Ethan Guinn's 2-yard run and Gabe Shillings PAT. Maurice Lane carried three times for 33 yards, while Guinn had 6 yards on 2 carries.

    The Cherokee Yellow Jackets made the long trek to Maynardville Thursday night, but the trip was a good one as Brent Kelley's squad rolled to a 34-0 victory over Horace Maynard.
