District play heats up in Week 4 of high school football


There were big district games all over East Tennessee on Friday night.

West and Farragut battled in District 4-AAA action.

The Rebels came away with a 21-14 win, giving head coach Scott Cummings his first victory over Farragut in six tries.

South-Doyle took a trip out to Burke-Toney Stadium for a huge IMAC game against Morristown West.

The Trojans didn’t believe South-Doyle’s 3-0 record reflected their ability. Morristown West ran out of the locker room through a banner that read, “South-Doyle 1st place, time to welcome you back to reality.”

The teams traded fumbles early in the game and Malik Lundy scored on a 70 yard run for the only points of the first half.

Lundy finished with 96 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.

Dennis Mongan was a big part of the fumble party for South-Doyle as he forced two and recovered one.

Morristown West had trouble getting the offense going without star running back Malachi Horton, who was out with an injury.

The Cherokees pulled off the upset in overtime 20-14, to start the year 4-0 for the first time since 2001.

Another unbeaten team was on upset alert at halftime. CAK trailed Loudon by 13 at one point in the first half before exploding in the third quarter to run its winning streak to 11 games.

Davis Howell reeled in 13 catches for 233 yards and two touchdowns and also returned a kick for a score in the Warriors 56-34 win.

Bearden and Lenoir City played a sloppy first half but got things together in the second. The Bulldogs pulled out a 24-14 win to remain among the ranks of the undefeated.

That group includes Oak Ridge (35-0 win over Halls), Coalfield (45-7 over Oliver Springs), Greenback (49-0 over Midway), Kingston (17-0 over Stone Memorial), and Maryville (51-0 over Heritage).

Fulton continues to look like one of the strongest teams in the area. The Falcons steamrolled Pigeon Forge 55-0.

Xavier Hawkins scored on each of Fulton’s first three offensive plays on catches of 28 and 52 yards and a 52-yard run.

Seymour had their 4-0 record spoiled by IMAC rival Jefferson County. The Patriots led 27-7 at the half and cruised to a 36-14 win.

Austin-East was hoping for its first win of the year after running through a gauntlet of a schedule in the first four games.

The Roadrunners converted a two-point attempt with less than a minute left to tie the game at 20 but failed to convert another in overtime. Carter pulled out the 27-26 win.

Catholic picked up its first district win and moved to 3-1 overall with a 33-10 victory over William Blount. Nolan Coulter led the way with 195 rushing yards and three TDs.

Next up for the Irish is the Battle of the Bluff against Webb. The Spartans hammered DCA 42-6.
