From staff reports • Sep 1, 2018 at 10:30 AM

BRISTOL. Tenn. — Senior defensive backs Colton Adams and Easton Harrell broke up a pass on fourth-and-4 from the Daniel Boone 8-yard line, and the Trailblazers fought off Tennessee High 26-21 on Friday night.

Charlie Cole scored his third touchdown of the game on a 3- yard blast with 4:31 remaining to wipe out a 21-20 Vikings advantage.

Tennessee High (2-1, 0-1 Region 1-5A) moved from its own 18 to inside the Boone 10 and had third- and fourth-down cracks in the game’s final 20 seconds.

Nathan Johnson broke up a third-down pass to 6-foot-6 Vikings tight end Nolan Wishon, before Adams and Harrell combined to save the day with their fourth-down breakup of a throw also intended for Wishon.

“It was a great team effort and victory,” said Boone coach Jeremy Jenkins. “We made some big plays on special teams, our offense made a lot of key plays and our defense made plays when we had to.

“A lot of missed assignments and alignments, but other than that I’m real proud of the kids’ effort. The kids got down but they never quit, and then we made a big-time play in the end to win this thing.”

Cole carried the ball 21 times for 100 yards. Harrell, the quarterback, rushed for 136 yards.


BEN HUR — The Generals (1-1) clobbered the Pioneers (0-2) in a nondistrict game that quickly got out of hand.

Lee led 16-0 at the end of the first quarter and scored twice within the first 10 plays from scrimmage.

Generals quarterback Garrett Brady had two passing touchdowns, one each to Devin Goins and Josh Tritt.

Tritt also returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Ethan Wynn ran for a pair of TDs and Blake Lewis added a rushing score.

Wynn carried the ball for 55 yards to lead Lee. Garrett finished 4-for-8 passing for 126 yards.


RICHLANDS — Behind the three-headed rushing monster of Avery Jenkins, Mason Polier and Aaron Stidham, the Bears won their annual grudge match with the Blue Tornado.

Jenkins ran for 127 yards and two touchdowns, Polier piled up 125 yards on the ground and Stidham rushed for 47 yards. Jenkins had a third TD on a 70-yard touchdown catch from Bailey Turner.

Linebacker Bryce Guerrant’s late interception iced the victory for Union (2-0).

Richlands quarterback Race Moir threw for 260 yards and four scores.


CASTLEWOOD — The Blue Devils got off to a good start with a 1-yard scoring run from Drew Mullins but then everything went the Tigers’ way.

Honaker’s Travis Musick had a 30-yard blocked punt return for a touchdown. Trevor Dye scored on a 29-yard jaunt and Levi Miller threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Stafford to round out the scoring for the Tigers (2-0).

CHILHOWIE — The Warriors blasted Burton with 22 second- quarter points — all within a five-minute span — to roll to the nondistrict win.

The stout Chilhowie defense shut down the Raiders (0-2) in both the second and third quarters and picked off two of Houston Thacker’s passes.
