  • Lady Waves keep off to a hot...
  • Blue Devils set for crash course...

    The Harriman Blue Devils have their home opener tonight against the Coalfield Yellow Jackets.

    It’s two games into the season. It’s still early too tell, but Harriman has thus far performed above expectations after losing the majority of its starters to graduation last season.

    The Devils hung tough in a 28-13 loss against Roane County rival Kingston in week one and bounced back to overwhelm the Wartburg Bulldogs, 37-26, in week two.

  • Tigers set to bait the Bears in...

    The Rockwood Tigers stay on the road this Friday as they travel to Tellico Plains for a week three match-up.

    Rockwood is coming off a 27-18 loss to the Sweetwater Wildcats.

    After being held scoreless in the first half, the Tigers (1-1) made a push to come back against Sweetwater, thanks to scores from Caleb Bowen, Ryan McCain, and Nate Brackett. Although it was a big push, there wasn’t enough time to come all the way back.

    There was enough impetus generated in the play during the second half that it could potentially be built on a week later.

  • Kingston faces Austin-East...

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets will visit the Austin-East Roadrunners this evening for a week three match-up.

    Both teams are coming into the game with unblemished 2-0 records. They also are similar in the fact that Kingston has outscored opponents 87-16 while the Roadrunners are 71-20.

    The Yellow Jackets looked like they found new life in the second half of last week’s contest with the Oliver Springs Bobcats.

  • Midway looks to keep riding the...

    After starting the season with two road games, the Midway Green Wave will finally open at home tonight against the Oakdale Eagles.

    To say the season has been exciting so far for the Green Wave would be an understatement.

    Midway started the season losing a close one, 41-40, in an offensive slugfest with the Rockwood Tigers.

    The performance showed that the Green Wave could potentially hang in there with the big boys and last week’s game was another close one.

    Midway beat a tough Monterey Wildcats team in a defensive struggle, 7-6.

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats came into the game with a 2-2 record. Both of their losses had come by one goal each, but this game was different.

    The Panthers defeated the Bobcats 7-1 to remain undefeated.

  • Harriman Middle’s skid continues

    The Harriman Blue Devils took on the Spring City Bulldogs in what was their second contest of the season on Thursday night.

    Harriman dropped the contest 46-0.

    Harriman dropped their first game of the season against Cherokee, therefore the Devils were looking for their first win of the season.

    Harriman deferred to the second half on the coin toss and kicked off to start the game.

    The Bulldogs started on their own 45 to start the game.

  • Brown honored for service
  • Bobcats give Eagleton “royal”...

    The Oliver Springs Middle School Bobcats dominated the Eagleton Royals, 34-8, Thursday evening in Maryville to start their football season.

    The Bobcats locked down the Royals at every step, especially in the first quarter and in the first half of the game.

    “We were a little frustrated that we didn’t get to have a game last week,” Oliver Springs Coach Buster Brown said, “it was for good reasons, the other team wasn’t available to play.

    “We played a jayvee game and our kids were ready to come out.
