For the fourth week in a row, the Kingston crickets, hoppers and cutters all won games in Tennessee Valley Conference play. The only blemish for Kingston last Saturday was the peewee loss to Oak Ridge. The only points Kingston allowed to Oak Ridge East was a single touchdown in the cricket game. 

In Oak Ridge, the Harriman Blue Devils played better, but were still swept by Oak Ridge West. 

The three wins by Kingston leaves the crickets tied with Oak Ridge West in first place. The hoppers a half game ahead of Harriman for second, and the cutters in a solid second place.

The Kingston crickets improved to 6-1 with a 16-6 win over Oak Ridge. 

Touchdown runs by Carson Bassler in the first half and by Javarie Ashford in the second half provided all the points Kingston would need. Wyatt Galyon added the two-point conversions after each TD run.

Bradley Keathley had a huge day for the Kingston hoppers in the 22-0 win over Oak Ridge. Keathley scored on runs of 40 yards and 15 yards in the second quarter. He added a 35-yard sprint in the third quarter. 

Andrew Cofer added the two-point conversion after the first Keathley TD while Austin Kurtz tacked on the two-point run after the second TD.

The Kingston cutters also pitched a 22-0 shutout at Oak Ridge. 

Benji Headrick scored twice in the first half on runs of 45 and 48 yards. Headrick added the two-point conversion after his first TD run while Brandon Plemons hit Bryson Johnson for a two-point pass after the second TD.

Kingston scored their last touchdown in the fourth quarter when Elijah Reeder hit Johnson with a 3-yard scoring toss.

Harriman was wiped out the previous Saturday by Oak Ridge West, but did play a little better on the second time around against them. 

The Blue Devil crickets fell 24-14 as Tahdarius Boyd and Alan Huvey scored the two Harriman TDs in the loss while Austin Edmonds added the two-point run.

The Harriman hoppers began the season with three straight wins, but have now lost three straight following a 28-0 loss to Oak Ridge last Saturday.

Low on numbers and with several out sick the Harriman cutters forfeited to Oak Ridge West last Saturday.
