Two playoff weeks are in the books and several big storylines played out in the second round.
Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold- There were 11 district rematches in the second round and four teams that were defeated in the regular season got big wins to knock out their district rivals such as:
MBA Beats Ensworth On Last Second FG- The Big Red (7-4) got a 43 yard field goal from Mr. Football Kicker finalist Andrew Fletcher with 41 seconds left to stun the nationally ranked Tigers 27-24 in the Division II-AA quarterfinals. Ensworth, ranked No. 64 by Rivals, blasted MBA ten weeks ago 50-21 as running back Orleans Darkwa rushed for 342 yards and five touchdowns in the blowout win. Ensworth (10-1) got another great performance from Darkwa who rushed for 240 yards but blew a 17-0 lead as MBA fought back -- running back Fitz Lassing ran for 92 yards and scored the game-tying TD at 24. MBA now advances to play another big rival in Brentwood Academy who defeated the Big Red three weeks ago 26-7.
Anderson Co. Rallies to Beat Clinton Late- Two weeks ago Clinton celebrated a district title by beating Anderson Co. 35-21. But Friday, behind the strong arm of junior quarterback, Tanner Williams, the Mavericks rallied from a 28-24 deficit to win 31-28 as Williams hit Chad Blakley on fourth and 5 with 42.9 seconds left to give Anderson Co. the win and kill Clinton’s (10-1) undefeated season. Williams passed for 387 yards and 4 TDs for the Mavericks -- who travel to Columbia (10-1) for a quarterfinal game.
Daniel Boone Slows Down Tennessee High Offense- Tennessee High quarterback Taylor Harmon had his way in week 9 as he passed for a school record 339 yards and five touchdowns in a 51-26 win. But Daniel Boone avenged the loss three weeks ago as the Trailblazer defense stuffed the Viking running game as they allowed only six yards rushing and 156 yards of total offense in a 23-14 win over the previously unbeaten Vikings (11-1).
Riverdale Manhandles Blackman- Two weeks ago in the rain, Riverdale’s offense was contained and Blackman won their first game ever against Riverdale for the Blaze’s first district title. What a difference two weeks and a dry field makes. The Warriors (10-2) avenged their 14-13 overtime loss in week 10 in dominating fashion as they physicially manhandled Blackman (10-2) to win 31-7 to advance to the third round of the playoffs. Riverdale feasted on four Blackman turnovers something that didn’t happen in the earlier meeting. The Warriors jumped to a 17-7 lead at the half and never looked back scoring twice in the second half to put away the Blaze.
Loudon Beats Polk Co. At Their Own Game- All season long Polk Co. overwhelmed opponents with their hard charging ground game. The Wildcats went through the regular season pounding teams with a fierce running game that averaging nearly 300 yards on the ground. But Loudon turned the tables on Polk Co. by shutting down the potent Wildcat running game as they held Polk Co. to only 16 yards rushing as Loudon won 24-13. Loudon rushed for 255 yards as running back Matthew Wallace had 103 yards and scored two touchdowns and was a sparkplug on defense as well as he intercepted two passes.
Revenge Is Ours A Year Later -- Boyd Buchanan 28, Marion County 6- Last season an underdog Marion County team went to Boyd Buchanan and took advantage of five Buccaneer turnovers to beat Boyd 7-6. A year later it was Marion Co. that turned it over five times as Boyd got 145 yards rushing and one touchdown from running back Ben Beasley who helped the Marion cause last season with a crucial fumble. Boyd quarterback Andrew Crowe had a touchdown run and threw two touchdowns as the Bucs gained a measure of revenge on the Warriors.
Giles Co. 32, David Lipscomb 6- For Giles County beating David Lipscomb erased years of frustration at the hands of the Mustangs. Behind Class 4A Mr. Football Back Finalist Bo Wallace’s 225 yards rushing and two touchdowns, Giles closed the Mustangs out this season something they couldn’t do last season winning 32-6. In 2008, David Lipscomb defeated Giles twice once in the regular season 31-28 and 17-16 in the third round of the playoffs. Lipscomb had beaten Giles six straight times and had a winning margin of 30-12 over the Bobcats, but Wallace and running back Tobias Houston wouldn’t allow another Lipscomb comeback.
