  • 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.

    for the Roane County News

    In a tale of two dramatically different halves, Sweetwater found a way to come out on top. The Wildcats shut out Rockwood in the first half and held on in the second, never trailing in a 27-18 win over the Tigers at King Berrong Stadium.

    “It’s a good feeling,” Sweetwater coach Ethan Edmiston said. “We’ve got a lot to work on, had a lot of mistakes tonight but I’m happy that we found a way to pull it out.”

  • Green Wave hang on to win

    After opening the season with a 41-40 loss at Rockwood in a shootout, the Midway Green Wave bounced back and won a defensive slugfest at Monterey Friday night, 7-6.

    “It’s a win,” Midway head coach Ryen Minton said following the contest. “Every game is a different game. I’m proud of our boys because they fought and never quit fighting.”

    The first half of Friday’s game would see no scoring, but Midway had its back against the wall on two separate occasions.

  • Big 2nd half propels Jackets

    The Kingston Yellow Jackets scored 35 points in the second half on the way to beating the Oliver Springs Bobcats, 49-3, Friday night in Oliver Springs.

    Coming back onto the field after the half, Kingston didn’t waste much time in finding the offense’s fifth gear.

    “We came out in the second half and was focused,” Yellow Jacket Coach Brian Pankey said, “we had a lot of mental breakdowns in the first half.
