Wilson Central 28, Portland 24
With the win, the Wildcats stayed unbeaten at 7-0 overall and tied with Beech atop the District 9AAA standings with identical league marks of 4-0.
QB Jordan Roundtree hooked up with freshman Gabe Angel on a game-winning touchdown pass of 45 yards with just 1:35 left in regulation.
Wilson Central and Beech square off for the undisputed District 9AAA lead Oct. 5 in Gladeville.
Station Camp 41, Lebanon 11
Winners for the fourth week in a row, the Bison (4-3, 2-2) scored the only two touchdowns they really needed in the first quarter — a punt blocked scooped up by Sherman Dunlap and a 14-yard pass from Kyle Anderton to Josh Malone.
It was a monster night for Malone and Anderton — their most productive of the season.
Malone followed his first touchdown with an 88-yard kickoff return for a score to answer a Lebanon (0-7, 0-4) field goal. He then scored on scoring passes of 19 and 33 from Anderton before halftime. Station Camp led 34-3 at the break.
Anderton finished 5-of-8 for 100 yards and the three scores; Malone finished with three catches for 66 yards and the three touchdowns.
Ethan Copas scored on a 45 yard run in the fourth for the Blue Devils -- who were held to just 93 yards in total offense by the Bison defense.
Lebanon visits Portland Friday, Oct. 5.
Mt. Juliet 42, Gallatin 0
Contrez McCathern was the spark for the Bears (5-1, 3-1 District 9AAA) on offense, rushing for 167 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns. Austin Chaplin also had two TD runs for Mt. Juliet, while Connor Hopkins had one.
Gallatin’s best scoring chance came in the first half when the Green Wave (2-5, 1-3 District 9-AAA) drove inside the Bears’ 20-yard line but were turned away when Morgan Campbell’s fourth-down pass fell incomplete.
With its defensive prowess, Mt. Juliet left the Gallatin offense largely ineffective. Darian Banks finished with 38 total offensive yards, but it was not enough to help Gallatin find the end zone.
Gallatin after scoring 37 and 36 in its two wins in Week 1 and 2 have scored 27 points combined the last four games.
Mt. Juliet will host Station Camp Friday, Oct. 5.
Friendship Christian 31, TCHS 0
The Commanders racked up 227 yards on 44 rushing attempts as soph tailback Steven Hollis led the way with 151 yards on 22 attempts and scored two touchdowns. Quarterback AJ Long completed 7-of-11 pass attempts for 115 yards and a touchdown.
The Commanders play at Watertown's Robinson Stadium Friday, Oct. 5. The win upped Friendship's record to 6-1 overall and 4-1 in Region 4A. TCHS slipped to 3-3 / 2-2.
Watertown 66, Clay Co 34
Down 7-0 following a 69 yard run by Jayar Frage, the Tigers responded with eight touchdowns before Clay County could manage a response.
The scoring fest featured four touchdowns from Brannon Hill, two each from Ty Jobe and Cooper Jacobsen mixed in with TD passes from Jobe to Dakota Self and Jacobsen.
Watertown will host Friendship Christian Friday, Oct. 5.
Zion Christian 22, MJ Christian 12
MJCA fell to 1-6 overall / 0-1 East/Middle Region with the loss.
After the teams dueled to a scoreless first quarter, Zion Christian scored the game’s first touchdown on a 4-yard run from Paul Neelley.
Mt. Juliet Christian got on the scoreboard in the final second of the first half as Rikesh Van Mali hooked up with Jackson Harrell for a 9-yard touchdown to cut its deficit to 7-6.
