|Beech, Hendersonville, JPII and Station Camp all get wins|
|Friday, September 7, 2012|
Jalen Hurd had five touchdowns and 296 yards rushing in the first half as Beech won its homecoming game 56-0 over Cookeville. The Buccaneers remained undefeated at 4-0 while Cookeville fell to 1-3.
Hurd scored from 60, had a 61-yard run that set up a 9-yard score, and had an 18-yard TD on the first three series.
Cookeville fumbled the ensuing kickoff after Hurd’s third score and Lincoln Kenitzer found Dametris Watson for a 14-yard TD — No. 4 of the first quarter-plus.
Hurd had an 83-yard run to the end zone on the fifth series, however it was called back. No problem. He later punched it in from the 13 for his fourth score in the first 15 minutes of the game and a 35-0 lead.
A missed field goal by Cookeville gave the Bucs the ball back for their sixth series and Hurd went 63 yards for score No. 5 with 3:21 left in the first half and a 42-0 lead.
Hurd sat the second half. Parker Henry and Zander Jett had the two second–half touchdowns.
Hendersonville 35, Germantown 7
The Commandos put an end to their two-game slide as they defeated the visiting Red Devils and evened their record at 2-2. Germantown fell to 1-3.
Cameron Turner, who missed last week’s game with back issues, returned in a big way. He scored from 93 yards on the secondHendersonville possession.
The Hendersonville defense forced back-to-back three-and-outs to open the game and forced a fumble on their third series. Chad Dye capitalized on it as he hauled in a 23-yard touchdown pass for what would be the game-winner, 1:24 into the second quarter.
After forcing another three-and-out, Hendersonville capitalized again when Believe Kabasu scored from the 29, 4:22 after Dye’s touchdown. And the Commandos took a 21-0 lead into the intermission.
Anthony Tate opened the second half with a score 1:28 in for Hendersonville. Andrew Pate had the other second-half TD for the Commandos, scoring from the 14 with 5:18 left in the game.
Germantown’s lone score came on an 85-yard run right after Tate’s third-quarter score.
JPII 21, Goodpasture 14
Pope John Paul II rallied from 14 points down to take a big 21-14 victory on the road against Goodpasture Friday night.
The Knights (2-2) were sparked by Brad Jarreau’s 94-yard kickoff return for a touchdown just before the half to pull within seven and then outscored the Cougars (1-3) 14-0 in the final two quarters.
Vincent Perry and Gunnar Scholato had the TD runs in the second half for JPII. Perry finished with 83 yards on the ground, while Malik Harris had 58 and Jacob Polman had 38.
Eric Reed was the leading rusher for Goodpasture with 69 yards on 10 carries. Reed scored the first of the Cougars’ TDs, while Carter Wiseman had the other.
Station Camp 45, White House 10
Station Camp scored 35 unanswered points in the second half to beat visiting White House 45-10 on homecoming Friday night and get its first win of the 2012 season.
The Bison (1-3) squandered an early lead and allowed the Blue Devils (1-2) to tie the game at 10 just before the half. Turnovers and struggles with offensive execution were Station Camp’s worst enemy, but it learned from last week’s second-half collapse at Beech to stay the course.
A dedication to running the football paid off with long touchdown runs by Tre Malone (64 yards) and Jaquell Fitts (31 yards), along with an 18-yard TD catch by Josh Malone to swing momentum in the Bison’s favor for good.
Tre Malone had two TD runs for Station Camp, while Sherman Dunlap and Cameron Tomlin also scored.
Fitts finished with 207 yards.
Oakland 44, Gallatin 14
It started well for the Green Wave but did not end well in a 44-14 loss to the visiting Patriots. Gallatin fell to 2-2, while Oakland evened its record at 2-2.
Gallatin’s Darian Banks recovered a live ball on the opening kickoff and four plays later Caleb Robb caught a 5-yard pass from Morgan Campbell.
On Oakland's first drive, the Gallatin defense bent to the tune of 68 yards in 11 plays to their own 2 but did not break. They forced a fumble that Travis Pryor recovered in the end zone.
Banks followed with a 55-yard inside screen pass on the next play to get into scoring position, and three plays later caught a 23-yard toss from Campbell.
Up 14-0 with 3:36 left in the first, things were looking good. Then the final 39:24 happened.
Oakland bookended a Gallatin drive that stalled at the Patriot 28 with back-to-back scoring drives of its own to tie the game with 8:03 left in the first half.
Campbell’s last throw was an interception as he was injured with 2:41 left in the half (shoulder) and did not return. Marcus Williams replaced him at QB and his first throw was an interception.
The Pats converted the interceptions into scoring drives and a 34-14 lead at the break.
Gallatin moved the ball 84 yard over its first four drives of the second half with two interceptions and a missed field goal. Oakland scored on a 35-yard field goal and an 8-yard pass in the final two quarters.
HCA 36, Riverside Christian 34
The Crusaders (1-3) picked up their first win of the season against visiting Riverside Christian (0-4).
After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter, HCA came back with a Tanner Overby 2-yard run and a Peyton Segura 41-yard pass from Jake Murray and a Murray 2-point run to take the lead.
RC got it back with a score before the half and a 20-16 lead at intermission.
However, the Crusaders exploded for 20 points in the third quarter — a 15-yard pass play form Murray to Segura; a Murray 42-yard run and an Overby 38-yard run with a Segura 2-point conversion — to take a 36-26-lead and hold on for the win.
