It was bound to happen at some point or another. A high school student athlete tweeting his frustration after a painful loss, a coach catching wind of the message posted for the world to see and the suspension to follow. Last Friday night, that very thing happened to three Beech High School seniors. Sources have confirmed that three players have been dismissed from the Beech Buccaneer football team.
Beech and Mt. Juliet will meet this Friday night in a contest featuring two teams undefeated in district play. The game will be televised on MyTV30 and the winner will remain atop the District 9-AAA standings.
Mt. Juliet enters the contest 4-2 overall and 3-0 in the district. The Bears boast a strong offense that averages 28.5 points per outing. However, quarterback Nolan Chowbay struggled last week against Centennial in a 39-10 loss. The senior signal caller threw three interceptions and was sacked six times against the Cougars. In the previous five games, Chowbay had not thrown a single interception. The Bears will look to get back on track against Beech.
The Portland Panthers may be in the wrong place at the wrong time when Hendersonville comes to town for a game this Friday night. As if trying to corral the Commandos offense wasn’t tough enough, Hendersonville will be in a bad mood and looking to get back to their winning ways after suffering their first loss of the year last Friday to Riverdale.
Two teams will be fighting for their playoff lives this Friday night when Station Camp hosts Wilson Central. Both teams are 1-2 in the district and in desperate need of a win if they hope to keep playing in the post-season.
Station Camp is coming off a big loss to Pearl Cohn. The 58 points they allowed the Firebirds is the most they have given up in a game since the school opened its doors in 2002. Interestingly enough, in the win over Lebanon the week before, the Bison scored 62 points, the most in school history.
