    After a 24-year drought, Harriman has now beaten Kingston two out of three years.

    With just 24 seconds left down 21-18, quarterback Bradly Frost threw a pass up towards the end zone that was tipped twice before landing in the hands of running back Giovanni Cromwell.

    “It was such a good game,” Harriman Coach Travis Tapp said. “On both sides the kids played to the point of exhaustion, they played their hearts out.

    “Both communities should be proud of their teams.

  • Green Wave defangs the Tigers

    For the first time in 13 years, Midway beat Rockwood, 6-0, Thursday night at Midway High School.

    “We had a gameplan and we stuck with it,” Green Wave Coach Ryen Minton said. “Coach (Justin) O’Toole and Coach (Tommy) Defoe did a great job with our defense.

    “I have one of the best staffs around.”

    “I’m proud of the team and thankful to be part of this program.”

    Coming back onto the field after a scoreless first half, the Tigers looked like they had found their rhythm.

  • Penalties can’t stop ’Cats

    It wasn’t pretty.

    The Oliver Springs Bobcats withstood bad weather and penalties on the way to an 18-13 season opening road win against Bledsoe County Friday night.

    “It sure wasn’t pretty,” Bobcat Coach Larry Green said. “Turnovers and penalty yards were the two things we knew coming down here that we couldn’t do, but our kids showed great teamwork and character by fighting through the adversity.

    “We have a good group of seniors on this team and they provide great leadership.”

    Harriman Middle traveled to Coalfield to open the 2018 football season Thursday evening and the Blue Devil defense gave the Jackets all they could handle but the boys in orange proved to be too much as they started the season off with a 16-6 win.

    “It was a huge win over a very talented Harriman team”, stated Coalfield coach Sean Basler.

  • OSMS dries up Lake City

    Thursday night marked the start of football for a lot of teams, middle school and high school. High Schools in the area had moved their games to Thursday to try to beat the weather, but mother nature played her part in the evening, regardless.

    The Bobcats were suppose to kick their season off at 7:00 but weather caused the Bobcats to start at 7:30.

    The late start didn’t harm the home standing Bobcats as they were able to go on and pick up the 30-2 victory on the night, and give first year head coach Tyler Harper his first victory.
