    The Harriman Lady Blue Devils volleyball team improved their record to 6-2 as they traveled to Coalfield Tuesday evening and won the battle 3-1 in a hard-fought match that included athletic dives, long volleys, floater serves and over the net spikes. Coalfield won the first game by a score of 25-21 but Harriman won the final three by scores of 26-24, 25-18 and 25-18.

  • Harriman gives Midway a devil of...

    The Harriman Middle Blue Devils won their first game of the season Thursday evening, beating the Midway Middle Green Wave, 20-16 with two minutes to go at Midway.

    “That’s one of those games where you don’t want either team to lose,” Harriman Middle Coach Baron Tapp said, “both teams were playing their hearts out.

    “We’ve been beat up for three weeks in a row.

    “I’m just proud of my kids for stepping up and playing.”

    The Cherokee Yellow Jackets remain undefeated after beating the Spring City Bulldogs 12-0 on Thursday night in Kingston.

    In the first two games for the Yellow Jackets, they dominated from beginning to end to come out with sizable victories. The Bulldogs were a formidable foe throughout the entire game that was littered with penalties.

    Cherokee won the coin toss and opted to defer to the second half. On the kickoff, Spring City fumbled but was able to recover.

  • Bobcats can’t handle Cougar...

    Cougars are known to be at their most dangerous at dusk and dawn; the same can be said for the Cougars of Northview Academy.

    The Cougars traveled on the road to take on the Oliver Springs Bobcats in front of a packed crowd and showed why they’re dangerous at night.

    After not finding the end zone in the first quarter against the Bobcats, the Cougars managed to score five touchdowns in the last three quarters en route to a 35-7 victory.

    But for untimely penalties and snap miscues, Harriman might have played a spoiler’s role Friday evening.

    The Blue Devils were close to springing an upset on a night when Oneida dedicated its newly-renamed stadium and celebrated homecoming. Instead, they committed 10 penalties for 60 yards, saw drives stall twice in the red zone, and saw the Indians walk away with a 13-7 win.

  • Battle in trenches Blue Devils’...

    This evening the Harriman Blue Devils will travel to Oneida to face the Indians.

    For a team with a 1-2 record, many wouldn’t think of that as successful, but thus far Harriman has performed above expectations. With a young in experienced team, the Devils have actually exceeded them.

    Harriman will have to continue the trend and build upon the successes of the season. While building for the future, the Devils may find the present may be brighter.

  • Midway squares off with Unaka

    The Midway Green Wave have won two in a row and will be looking to stay hot Friday as they travel to Elizabethton to face the Unaka Rangers.

    So far in the young season, the Green Wave (2-1) has experienced the gamut of game experiences. The close, offensive slugfest only to lose in the closing moments (the game with Rockwood), the defensive battle in which the starting quarterback goes out (the game with Monterey), and the all out blow out (the game with Oakdale).

  • O.S. set to catch a cougar

    After an open week, the Oliver Springs Bobcats will be back in action this Friday when they host the Northview Academy Cougars.

    So far early in the season, things haven’t gone the way many expected for the Bobcats.

    The season opener with Bledsoe County saw Oliver Springs fall behind early and then attempt a comeback in the last half, only to run out of time, losing 28-21.

  • A Roane County clash

    This evening will see the Rockwood Tigers return home after two road games to host the Kingston Yellow Jackets.

    The last two weeks have went almost the same path for the two teams.

    Kingston beat Oliver Springs before falling to Austin-East. Rockwood fell short against Sweetwater only tor rebound for a win against Tellico Plains.

    The pair of rivals are looking to improve their records at the other’s expense. Whatever the outcome, it is safe to say a Roane County team will win tonight.
