Trousdale County has been a long-time power in Class 1A, but the sixth-ranked Yellow Jackets suffered a 9-0 loss to Gordonsville on Friday. The two programs have played every season since 2005, with the Tigers producing just two wins (also in 2012) over Trousdale County during that 12-year span.
Brentwood Academy knocked off top-ranked Baylor on Friday. However, it wasn’t the outcome that was so shocking but rather the dominating fashion of the 35-0 final score. The third-ranked Eagles outgained the Red Raiders by a 391-87 in total yardage.
Cookeville was one of 20 Midstate teams entering last Friday, but the Cavaliers were one of the six who fell last Friday, suffering a 16-0 loss to visiting Siegel. It was the first victory for the Stars, whose first four opponents have a combined record of 14-5.
Aerial success … and struggles
Hillsboro quarterback Antwaun Goodner passed for 385 yards and two touchdowns last Friday. However, four interceptions proved costly as the Burros suffered a 28-14 loss at Hendersonville. Hillsboro actually committed seven turnovers. Commando Weston Schwerdt had three interceptions, returning one for a touchdown.
Fired up for the Blaze
A top-10 match-up between cross-town rivals turned into an Oakland runaway last Friday. Second-ranked Patriots were never threatened by Blackman in a 38-0 victory. Oakland limited the Blaze to 156 total yards, winning the third consecutive game between the two programs.
