FOUR PREP GAMES ON TAP TONIGHT
WATERTOWN -- Trousdale County took advantage of several Watertown miscues and ran away with a 42-6 victory over the Purple Tigers Thursday night at robinson Stadium.
The Yellow Jackets improved to 8-1 overall and locked up the Region 4A championship with a 7-0 league mark. Watertown slipped to 6-3 overall and 5-2 in the region.
After a scoreless first quarter, Trousdale County’s Tacola Seay did most of the damage, rushing for 251 yards on 27 carries and scoring three touchdowns. All told, Trousdale County racked up 514 yards in total offense -- 449 on the ground.
Watertown QB Dalton Phillips completed 17-of-31 passes for 169 yards -- including a 29 yard TD pass to KeAndre Bates midway through the fourth quarter.
The Purple Tigers will close out the regular season on the road Oct. 30 at Jackson County High.
Only four Wilson County prep football teams will be in action tonight as rain and other considerations have changed plans.
Wilson Central High will be looking to break an eight-game losing streak tonight as District 9AAA rival Station Camp rolls into Gladeville. The young Bison stand 2-6 overall after being hammered last week 46-7 by Mt. Juliet.
Lebanon High takes a record of 4-4 overall / 2-3 in the league into Sumner County tonight for a 7 p.m. encounter with 6-2 Gallatin. Live play-by-play radio coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. on WANT FM-98.9. LHS was idle last week while the Green Wave was busy holding off stubborn Beech High 7-0.
Roger Perry’s Mt. Juliet Golden Bears will look to keep their spotless 8-0 overall and 5-0 league marks intact tonight as they visit Portland High.
The Panthers are winless at 0-8 / 0-5 after losing 30-13 to Hendersonville High last week.
"Portland is running a new offensive system and you’ve got to believe they’re getting better as this is a Week 9 game," Coach Perry said. "When you study the film on them, they throw it and catch it. They might be running a short route, but you’ve got to do a good job tackling. If a man falls down, slips down, it could be a big play. It’s certainly something different than what we’ve seen so far this year."
Friendship Christian took a few days off due to being open in Week 8, but the squad went back to work Monday in preparation of tonight’s 7 p.m. home game with Red Boiling Springs.
"We gave the kids a few days off and I think they came back Monday with some good energy," FCS coach John McNeal said.
The Commanders stand 7-1 overall / 5-1 in Region 4A.
Winless (0-8) Mt. Juliet Christian Academy is scheduled to play at pass-happy Zion Christian in Maury County Saturday at 4 p.m.
