    Midway, however, came up short, as they dropped a 38-23 decision against the host Bulldogs.

  • The Oliver Springs basketball...

  • Cherokee tops Spring City, 16-14

    Facing a fourth-and-1 with about two minutes to play against Spring City last Thursday, Cherokee Middle School football coach Wiley Brackett challenged his team to get the first down.

    The Yellow Jackets responded and got the first down on a quarterback sneak, which allowed them to run out the clock in the 16-14 victory.

    “That was an old-fashion, physical football game on both sides of the ball.” Brackett said. “We were just a little bit more physical up front than they were.”

  • RMS picks up first win of 2015...

    A brief but heavy rain storm did not stop the Midway Middle Green Waves and the Rockwood Middle Tigers from kicking off on time, but it did alter some of the play calling on a soaking wet field.

    Now 1-4, Rockwood will try to get their second win Thursday when they host Cherokee.

    Midway drops to 3-2 with the loss and will host Spring City on Thursday.

    After both teams ran three plays and punted to end their first possessions, Midway got a spark on its second possession for the game’s first points.

  • Cherokee holds off Harriman, 20-...

    In a classic match-up of size versus speed, it was the size of the Cherokee Yellow Jackets that won out in a 20-16 victory over Harriman at Wallace-Black Field on Thursday.

    “We’re not the fastest team so we kind of have to line up and be physical,” Cherokee head coach Wiley Brackett said. “It was sloppy offensively in the first half, and they took it to us, but I thought we did a better job in the second half.”
