COOKEVILLE -- Just another typical Lebanon - Cookeville football game. Hotly contested and up for grabs until the end, the Cavs rallied from 24-20 deficit to score a pair of fourth quarter TD’s in a 32-24 win over the Lebanon Friday at Eddie Watson Stadium.
The game marked the ninth time in the past 12 meetings that the score was closer than 10 points -- the eighth time the margin was eight or fewer.
“What can you say, we had some opportunities,” said LHS coach Bobby Brown, “I thought we played with much better effort and intensity than a week ago, but there’s still areas we can improve.”
The game was a see-saw affiar as Lebanon took a 3-0 lead, only to see Cookeville score back-to-back touchdowns and mount a 14-3 advantage. The teams swapped scored until LHS put together two touchdowns drives in the third quarter for a 24-20 advantage.
Patrick Maynard broke loose on a 72-yard touchdown scramble for Lebanon’s first lead since the early going at the 9:12 mark of the third. He later capped off a four play, 78 yard TD drive with a 16 yard scoring run with 5:41 remaining in the quarter.
Cookeville’s Stephen Bush closed the game out for the Cavs with a 47 yard TD run early in the fourth, followed by a 10 yard burst for six points minutes later.
"They (Lebanon) have some young guys that are players," Cookeville coach Jerry Joslin said. "They're a junior ball club, they work hard, they play hard, they're well-coached. (LHS coach) Bobby Brown and his staff do a great job. I have all the respect in the world for them."
Bush finished with205 yards rushing on 19 carries and scored three times.
LHS mounted 360 yards in total offense, 313 on the ground. CHS had 377 in offense, 314 on the ground. Lebanon had 15 first downs, CHS 11. DeQuintous Dowell recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass. Case Sloan had 14 tackles, Ethan Copas 12 and Dre Smith 10 in the loss.
Maynard rushed 21 times for 152 yards and three TD’s. Jarvon Neal added 73 yards on 10 attempts.
Lebanon will host District 9AAA rival Portland Friday at Nokes-Lasater Stadium for homecoming.
