The Flintville Bobcats traveled to Pulaski to meet the South Giles Eagles. Flintville dropped the game to South Giles, 36-6, and remains winless so far this season.
The Bobcats have been strapped with a limited number of players this season.
“It was a tough loss for us,” Coach Scott Posey said. “We showed some improvement and some guys are playing with a lot of heart and determination, but it was simply too little too late.
“I appreciate Coach Nave and Giles’ hospitality.”
Things will not get easier this week as the Bobcats play the Huntland Hornets.
The Blanche Bulldogs had one of their best performances of the season. The issue was it was against the only undefeated team in the Elk Valley Conference, the Huntland Hornets.
The Hornets held off the Bulldogs, 34-16, to remain undefeated.
Bulldogs Javean Riddle, Braden Smith, Luke Parks, Tristin Alderman and Neal Massey were all recognized by the coaches for their play against Huntland.
“Huntland has a talented and well-disciplined team,” Coach Adam Dewitt said. “We saw some things out of our guys in this game that we’ve been waiting for all season. We’re looking forward to the Cornersville game, we will be honoring our eighth graders that night.”
The Bulldogs host the Cornersville Bulldogs this week.
South Lincoln Eagles
South Lincoln continued their tear with a 36-0 spanking of South Franklin.
Diesen Ogle threw for two touchdowns, Crawford Riley had two rushing touchdowns, and Clint Quick caught a touchdown pass for the Eagles.
South Lincoln has dropped only one game this season, 14-8, to the division champs the Unity Bulldogs in the first game of the season.
“Super proud of this team,” Coach Ben Fuhs said. “We have a lot more work to do as we look to finish the season on the road against Highland Rim next week. Then South Giles to wrap up the regular season.” South Lincoln travels this week to their rival the Highland Rim Hornets.
Highland Rim Hornets
Highland Rim fell to the first place Unity Lions, 40-6. The Hornets needed the win to give them a chance at defending their title. The Lions wasn’t going to allow that to happen.
“Tough loss for us, having our quarterback out. Zach Smith ran the ball hard for us,” Coach Logan Jean said. “Micheal Abela was also making plays on both sides of the ball for us. Props to Unity, they are a tough team this year.”
Highland Rim will host the South Lincoln Eagles this week.
The Unity Lions beat the reigning Elk Valley Conference Champs, the Highland Rim Hornets, 40-6, to wrap up their first county championship in 13 years. Unity will be looking to rematch the undefeated Huntland Hornets in the Elk Valley Championship game later this year.
Carsen Carter had four touchdowns for the Lions, and Peerless Price had two more touchdowns.
“It feels great to win the county, something that hasn’t been done since 2009,” said Coach Josh Carter.” These guys are physical, which I feel is fading away in this great sport. I have been coaching these kids since the third grade and I love each of them.”
Unity will host South Giles this week.
Fayetteville Middle Tigers
The Fayetteville Tigers hosted the Cannon County Lions for homecoming and came away with yet another win, 36-22. The coaches recognized Trez Brown, Brayden Howard, Keenan Hockett, Fernando Leslie, and Kieyun Ford for their good play.
“We beat Cannon tonight, but it was an ugly win. We didn’t have a good week of prep,” said Coach BJ Netherland. “We play Liberty next, and the winner will go to the championship game to play Forrest.”
Fayetteville will be at Liberty this week.
