Dickson's Source for Local Sports

Dickson trailed most of the way in the 41-31 loss to Wilson Central but for a brief moment in the fourth quarter it seemed he Cougars had a little homecoming magic.

Dickson County dug a big hole in the first quarter. On three straight drives the Wildcats put touchdowns on the board the Cougars went three and out. Finally, trailing 21-0, Dickson scored from 39 yards out on the last play of the first quarter. Sophomore Jacob Murphree found receiver Isaiah Burns for the score and Dickson trimmed the lead to 21-7.

The second quarter was a bit more even. The Cougars pulled closer, 21-10, with a Jacob Williams 41 yard field goal. It looked like Dickson would face a 28-10 deficit at halftime after another Wilson Central touchdown with 1:30 to go in the half. However, Dickson mounted a 49 second drive and Murphree found Burns again from 10 yards out to make it 28-17 at the break.

Both teams went three and out to start the second half. On their second drive of the half the Cougars would chewed up most of the third quarter. Murphree scrambled out of the pocket to his right and got good blocks from Ty Murphree and Cayce Daniel, clearing the way for a 17 yard touchdown. Dickson trailed 28-23 after a failed two point conversion.

In the fourth quarter, Dickson turned to Collier Wolcott for another long drive that culminated in a 2 yard touchdown run by the junior. Murphree scrambled right again to score the two point conversion. Dickson led 31-28 with 8:39 to go.

Unfortunately, Wilson Central would score the final 13 points and Dickson failed on their final two drives. Sealing the homecoming loss 41-31.

The Cougars now prepare to travel to Summit Friday at 7.

The game was far from easy, but the Creek Wood Red Hawks held off a hungry Stewart County Rebel team that overcame a 13 point deficit in the second half. The Red Hawks fed off the homecoming crowd and rallied once again, turning away the visitors from Dover 40-28.

Stewart County had the ball first and moved it well, picking up two first downs before the Red Hawk defense stiffened. Kyle Klotz and Wyatt Page stopped Rebel reserve running back Tobias Clark for a three yard loss on third down and forced the punt. Ian Spence ran the show at quarterback for most of the game, and the confidence showed up on the first drive for Creek Wood. Spence engineered a brisk 4 play, 72 yard scoring drive–two runs and two passes–ending in a 27 yard passing score to Klotz out of the backfield. Spence’s extra point was good, and with 6:37 left in the first it was 7-0 Creek Wood.

The Red Hawk defense forced a quick three and out as Devon Higgins broke up a pass on third down, and Creek Wood was in great field position after the punt at their own 44. Spence called his own number and ran for a first down, then looked for Dalton Pentecost on a passing play; the pass was incomplete, but Pentecost drew the defensive pass interference penalty and the Red Hawks were in business at the Stewart County 33. Three plays later, Spence found sophomore Toby Weaver for a huge 23 yard pass to make it first and ten from the Stewart County 13. Pentecost would take the handoff, but the Rebels would force a fumble and recover. Five plays later, Stewart County would run Timothy Clark on an end around, and thanks to speed and good blocking the senior would go 70 yards for the tying score on the first play of the second quarter.

Both sides would trade possessions in the second, but on the Rebels’ next punt Creek Wood took the ball down to the Stewart County 15, and the Red Hawks needed just one play to regain the lead. Spence found a lane and ran it in for the go-ahead score, but his extra point was blocked giving Creek Wood a 13-7 lead with 5:18 left in the half. Stewart County would answer back later in the half, however; their next drive stalled, but on the first play after the punt Timothy Clark picked off Spence and set the Rebels up again. Just 5 plays later, Stewart County tied the game off a Taeton Wienk one yard touchdown run, and the extra point from freshman Gustavo DeSousa gave the Rebels their first lead of the game 14-13 with 21 seconds left in the second quarter. Creek Wood ran out the clock in the half, and headed to the locker room trailing, knowing they would get the ball back in the third.

A fired up Red Hawk squad came out in the second half, taking their opening drive 62 yards in 9 plays, ending in a 3 yard touchdown run from Klotz. The extra point was good, and Creek Wood led 20-14 with 8:08 left in the third. The defense stiffened, the Red Hawk punt return was stellar, and Creek Wood found itself at the opposing 5 yard line. Two plays later, Pentecost rammed into the endzone, and Creek Wood led 27-14 just like that. The homecoming crowd likely thought the game was over, but Stewart County had other ideas.

The Rebels marched down the field on their next drive, as Trey and Taeton Wienk along with Jeremy Waters ran the ball 8 straight times. The 56 yard trek ended as the senior quarterback Trey Wienk trotted into the endzone from 3 yards out, cutting the margin to 27-21 with 38 seconds left in the third. Stewart County surprised the Red Hawks with a squib onside kick and recovered, then the Rebels only needed one more play to steal the lead again as Wienk found Kameron Heina over the top for a 47 yard touchdown pass. After DeSousa’s extra point it was 28-27 Rebels with 27 seconds left in the third, meaning Stewart County needed just 11 seconds to erase a 13 point deficit and take the lead back.

Undaunted, Creek Wood had a quick answer of its own. After a Klotz run of 5 yards on first down, Spence found Mathis Duncan for a 57 yard passing score, but a two point try was no good. Still the Red Hawks managed a 2-play, 62 yard drive to reclaim the lead early in the fourth 34-28. Stewart County seemed flustered on its ensuing possession, as the two sides swapped penalties while the Rebels had carries of 0 and -1 yards. On third and long, Wienk went to the air again, but Higgins intercepted the pass and returned it to the Stewart County 5 yardline. Klotz punched in the score from there to quickly make it 40-28 and give the Red Hawks another two-score lead, but after the 11-second barrage already in the game, the defense was better prepared.

The Rebels went 4-and-out on their next drive, due in part to a first down sack from Austin Newsom. Klotz took over at quarterback for the Red Hawks, but penalties piled up on the drive. Ultimately, the Rebels would pick off Klotz on third down, and a CWHS personal foul penalty would give Stewart County even better field position out to their own 31. They would manage one first down before four straight incomplete passes would give the ball back to the Red Hawks around midfield. Spence came back in to close out the game, and a steady diet of Spence and Klotz on the ground would grind out the game and a 12 point win for the Red Hawks on homecoming night.

The battered squad, wearing the Ole Miss styled navy blue uniforms for the homecoming crowd, gets a bye week to heal up before a trip to Montgomery Central. Newsom was flipped from a two-way lineman to a strictly defensive lineman, meaning Page was moved from tight end to the offensive line. With the receiving corps depleted his sure hands were missed, as Creek Wood was without Isaac Edmondson for a second straight week.

On 8th grade night, the Dragons closed the regular season with a big win over Whithorne 34-12.

Dickson fumbled on their first possession but the defense forces a three and out. On the ensuing punt Triston Corlew bolted 70 yards up the right side for a punt return touchdown. He took the handoff into the endzone for a two point conversion as well and Dickson was on top early 8-0 over the Tigers.

Early in the 2nd, Dickson went to the big play again, this time, Darian Burns shook loose for a 39 yard touchdown. The conversion failed and Dickson led 14-0.

Moments later Colton Harris found Kody Pardue for a 43 yard hook up that set up a first and goal for the Dragons at the five. Corlew scored on a slice play to balloon the lead to 20-0 going in to halftime.

In the second half both teams would score twice. Dickson picked up another rushing touchdown when Sebastian Sweeney scampered  41 yards for a touchdown. Dickson lead 26-0 in the third quarter after the failed point after.

The Tigers final got on the board with a big run by Melikian from 34 yards out to make it 26-6 after the fail PAT. Whithorne got a 12 yard TD run moments later to cut the lead to 26-12.

The Dragons would scored one last time with Burns breaking off a 62 yard run and then plunging in from two yards out for the final touchdown. Dickson closed out 34-12 after the two point conversion.

Dickson will host Lewisburg next Saturday at 6pm for their bowl game.

Waverly Upends Red Hawks

The Waverly Central Tiger fans have waited many years for a team that could truly contend for a district title and beyond. On Friday night, that team removed any doubts about its arrival, as Waverly dismantled the Creek Wood Red Hawks 48-6.

Creek Wood forced a three-and-out on the Tigers’ opening drive, and Brenden Dickens teamed with Austin Newsom to block the punt and set the Red Hawks up in Waverly territory. Ian Spence fired a first-play strike to Mathis Duncan for a first down at the 15 yard line, and two plays later found him again for a first and goal around the 4. A Kyle Klotz run on first down got the Red Hawks inside the one, but Waverly’s defense denied the next two runs leaving Creek Wood on the doorstep at fourth and goal in the first quarter. The Red Hawks elected to go for the touchdown, but the pass was incomplete and Waverly got the ball on downs.

Three sport standout and quarterback J’Honathyn Smith calmly led the Tigers down the field, though penalties kept trimming down the big plays. Devin Palk, the versatile running back for Waverly, proved their money man on the drive and on the night. A key screen pass to Palk on third down around the Waverly 36 finally flipped the field, then Palk ran in a touchdown from 26 yards out for the first score of the game with 3:04 left in the first. The hold on the extra point try was bobbled, so the holder sprang up and fired a pass instead which was picked off and not returned by Creek Wood. Waverly led 6-0, but the game was far from over.

Klotz started the ensuing Creek Wood drive at quarterback, and as Coach Chuck Daniel had eluded to on the RFC Sports Hour two nights before, Spence got some time at wide receiver on the drive. The drive would quickly stall, but Spence is also the punter, and he scampered ten yards on the fake to pick up a first down. Klotz would hook up with Jonathan McCloud to convert a third and 11, and as the game ground into the second quarter Klotz found his brawling tight end Wyatt Page to convert a fourth down. The highlight of the night for the boys from Charlotte and White Bluff came with 11:19 to go in the first half, as Klotz–backup quarterback and starting running back–found Spence–starting quarterback and part-time receiver–for a 26 yard pass down the sidelines for a tying touchdown. The extra point would have given the Red Hawks the lead, but Spence’s kick was blocked and the game stayed 6-6.

Just over a minute later, Waverly took the momentum back, and would never give it up again. Smith found Jason Rodriguez for a 70 yard touchdown, then got back the missed extra point with a successful two point try on a toss to Palk. Up 14-6, the Tiger defense forced a three and out, and Waverly’s offense picked up two first downs before Palk scored again from 20 yards out. In less than four minutes, Waverly turned a tied game into a 21-6 edge, and they weren’t done in the first half.

The Red Hawks’ offense got stuck in the mud on a dry day in Humphries County, as the Tigers forced an incompletion, tackled James Hammock for a three yard loss, then registered a sack to stop Creek Wood cold. On the ensuing drive, Smith would find his basketball teammate Rhyse Randolph for a 31 yard passing touchdown to make it 28-6 with 5:37 left in the second.

Klotz would find Page for another first down with less than 5 minutes left before halftime, but the drive would stall again, and Rodriguez would block Spence’s punt to set up another quick score. On the first play of the drive, Smith would screen the ball to Palk, who sped in for a 31 yard score to make it 35-6 Waverly with 2:36 left in the second. The two sides would slow in the final minutes of the half, and CWHS would collect itself and look to the second half.

Unfortunately, the second half resembled the first, as the Red Hawks tried to establish an offensive rhythm with a 12 yard run by Spence, then a 10 yard pass to Peyton Gibbs. The drive would stall after that, and Creek Wood had to punt it away. Much like in the first half, the Tigers shot themselves in the foot with some ill-advised penalties; also like in the first, they overcame those penalties, scoring with a running play from 53 yards out to make it 42-6 with still 7:03 left in the third. That margin would trigger the mercy rule, and the clock barely stopped the rest of the game.

Even with a rested Spence back in at quarterback, the offense for Creek Wood was unable to find any rhythm, and the quick strike, no hesitation Waverly offense proved too much to handle in bursts on the other side. Palk would put the finishing touches on the game with a 62 yard romp with 7 minutes left in the game, and the Tigers would win 48-6.

Creek Wood (2-3, 1-2) returns home Friday night to take on Stewart County, one of only two 11-AA teams left without a district win (1-3, 0-2). The other winless district team, East Hickman (0-4, 0-3), travels to Fairview, which lost 14-7 at home against Montgomery Central on Friday night. Camden and Hickman County stayed perfect this week, beating Lewis County and East Hickman respectively. Waverly visits Montgomery Central this week, while Hickman County travels to Lewis County and Camden goes out of the district to face Huntingdon.

Third Quarter Crushes Cougars

For the second straight week the Cougars had a lapse in focus in the third quarter which seemingly cost them the game. This week Brentwood capitalized on the Dickson errors and defeated the Cougars 45-25 on Friday night.

Brentwood’s opening drive was held to just three points by the Cougar defense. On the ensuing possession Jacob Murphree got his first start at quarterback and the sophomore seemed to spark an early surge by Dickson. On third down at the Bruin 23 yard line, Murphree found Cayce Daniel on a slant route for the go ahead touchdown, putting the Cougars up 7-3. After a defensive stop Dickson again drove down and got points, this time a 29 yard field goal by Jacob Williams.

Brentwood picked up two touchdowns in the final five minutes of the half to take a 17-10 lead into halftime.

Dickson received the kickoff to start the second half and Murphree again piloted the Cougars downfield but on a read option play in the redzone he fumbled, setting up a Bruin drive to extend the lead to 24-10. On the next drive Murphree was intercepted for a touchdown and Dickson now trailed by 21, 31-10.

After another Brentwood touchdown the Cougars headed to the fourth quarter behind 38-10 and needing big plays to get back in the game. With seven minutes remaining Enoch Williams delivered back to back big plays. First, Murphree found Williams on a 22 yard fade, then the pair hooked up again on the two point conversion to trim the lead to 38-18. After a defensive stop Murphree hit Kincaid Lewis for a 41 yard one timer. The extra point cut the lead to 38-25. Dickson kicked the ball out of bounds on an attempted pooch onside kick and Brentwood reinserted their starts to put up one final score and close the game out 45-25.

Murphree finished 22-36 for 275 yards, and 3TDs but also had a pair of fumbles and a pair of interceptions. Daniel finished with 5 receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown.

Dickson hosts Wilson Central for homecoming next Friday at 7pm.

Very little went according to plan with the Dickson Middle School Dragons’ football game Thursday afternoon at Christ Presbyterian Academy. First of all, the high school squad for CPA had a home game scheduled for the next day, which forced the middle school Lions to the practice field. As the practice field lacked lights, the game had to then be moved to an earlier start, with a goal of 5:00pm instead of the usual 6:30pm. The game was then moved later, to a 5:30pm start, as DMS didn’t think it could get a bus early enough. Surprisingly, they could, but the officials didn’t arrive for a 5:00 start, so the game had a kick off on the fly.

The field lacked a public address system, so there were no line-ups and no national anthem. There was only one small set of bleachers and it was on the CPA side, so the Dragon faithful lined the area behind the DMS reserves with camp chairs. The halftime period was less than 10 minutes long to make sure the game finished before darkness. And perhaps the most shocking difference of all was the play on the field, as the Dragons were thoroughly whipped and took their first loss of the season, 26-0 on the road.

The Lions started the game by converting three straight first downs, keeping the ball mostly on the ground despite being billed as a pass-happy team. CPA got the ball inside the 10, but a penalty for an inelligible man down the field coupled with a second down sack by Ronal Flores pushed the drive backwards. Unfortunately for the Dickson defense, CPA found the end zone with a passing touchdown on fourth and goal, and despite a failed two point conversion the Lions led 6-0 with 3:29 left in the opening frame.

Dickson went three and out on their opening possession, as Colton Harris couldn’t connect with Cody Pardue on a third down pass. Workhorse back Darian Burns punted the ball away, but Triston Corlew hit the return man and caused a fumble. Gage Pontremoli recovered for the Dragons and Dickson was back in business. Unfortunately for DMS, Burns was tackled for a loss on first down, and a Corlew rush was stopped for basically no gain. Another Harris pass was incomplete on third down and a penalty was declined on the play as well, so the Dragons punted again and the Lions broke off a 15 yard run on first down to close out the first.

CPA got another big run on the first play of the second quarter, breaking loose for 13 yards and another first down. The DMS defense stiffened, however, and allowed a gain of just three followed by two incompletions from the mobile CPA quarterback. The home side went for it on fourth and long, but the Dragon defense sacked the quarterback, and set up the offense at the Dickson 41. The Dragons went three and out again and punted, but the offenses had stalled for both teams; CPA fell short of converting another fourth down and gave the ball back to Dickson, but after a penalty made it first and fifteen, the Dragons went three and out with two more incomplete passes. Burns punted again, but the Lions very nearly returned the punt for a huge score. Fortunately for the Dragons, “outrunning the punter” also meant outrunning the ace running back, and Burns wrapped up the open-field runner at the 15 yardline. Two plays later, the Lions found an open man on a slant and scored another touchdown, and with another incomplete two-pointer led 12-0 with just seconds left in the half. Corlew broke free on a completed pass as time expired, but the shifty Dragon was not able to put Dickson on the board before the short halftime break.

Dickson got the ball to start the half, and rushed the ball three straight times, all for losses. After the punt, CPA went on a six play drive that resulted in a 13 yard touchdown on a slant pass, and with a third missed two pointer the Lions led 18-0 with under two minutes left in the third.

The Dragons started the ensuing drive on their own 20, and Harris completed a big pass on the first play that gave DMS its first first down of the game, with 1:20 left in the third. After a four yard rush, however, Harris was picked off at the 13. A five yard rush and a five yard pass gave the Lions first and goal at the three, and rushed for the score on the very next play. CPA committed to the ground game and forced in the two pointer, and extended the lead to 26-0 with 6:17 left in the fourth.

DMS showed signs of life on their next drive, as Sebastin Sweeney rushed for six yards and Harris completed another pass for the Dragons’ second first down of the night. Dickson gave the ball back to workhorse Burns, who hammered off a big run but fumbled the football. CPA recovered with 3:30 left, and rushed four straight times to pick up another first down. On the very next play, the center snapped the ball over his quarterback’s head and the Dragons recovered, but all they had time for was one more rush by Sweeney before the game came to a close.

The Dragons return to action next week against a more traditional foe, Columbia-Whitthorne.

Ian had a solid game at defensive back, and despite splitting time at quarterback engineered a comeback in the fourth. The Red Hawks overcame a 14 point deficit and forced overtime on a Spence passing touchdown late, then scored what would be the game winner in overtime as he ran the option and pitched to Kyle Klotz for the touchdown. Ian also was perfect on extra points.

The Creek Wood Red Hawks hosted the Fairview Yellow Jackets Friday night, in a district rematch of a Fairview blowout win last year. Very little went according to plan in the game, including a defensive battle early and a scoreless first quarter, but the Red Hawks rallied back from down 14 points to force overtime, and Creek Wood blasted the Jackets in the extra frame for a 35-28 upset win and redemption from last year.

Fairview struck early in the second quarter as junior quarterback Hunter Zimmerman connected on a third down pass to Ben Buttrey for a 68 yard touchdown, and after the extra point it was 7-0 Jackets. Creek Wood answered right back, with Kyle Klotz subbing in for Ian Spence in a two-quarterback system. On the second play of the drive, Klotz found Mathis Duncan for a 56 yard pass down to the Fairview 18, and a Jacket penalty on the play made it first and goal at the 9. Soon after, Klotz called his own number on a QB keeper, and scored from 2 yards out to tie the game at 7-7 with just under 10 minutes left in the half.

The Jackets took the lead again with 8:22 left in the second, as Cameron Ragsdale caught a 37 yard pass to start the drive, and another 38 yard pass for the go-ahead score. After forcing a three-and-out and a punt from the Red Hawks, the Jackets struck quickly with one play. Zimmerman hit Graham Estes for a 68 yard touchdown pass, and with 2:05 left in the first half Fairview led 21-7. Creek Wood answered back quickly on offense, but a penalty took away a 79 yard touchdown pass from Ian Spence to Duncan. Spence then threw a pick, but the Creek Wood defense stepped up for a sack, then an interception of its own. Dylan Huffman gave the Red Hawks great field position at the Jacket 22. In just one play, Spence fired a 22 yard touchdown pass to Isaac Edmondson, and after the extra point from Spence it was 21-14 Fairview, a score that would stand at halftime.

Creek Wood got the ball to start the second half, but the Yellow Jacket defense forced a three and out. Three plays after the punt, Zimmerman found Drevon Moore for a 49 yard score to give Fairview a two score cushion with 10:17 left in the third. As surprising as it might have seemed at the time, this would not only equal Fairview’s largest lead of the night, it would be the last time the visitors scored.

The Red Hawks were unable to convert on their next possession and turned the ball over on downs, but the defense propped up the home team and forced another Yellow Jacket punt. The next Creek Wood drive was helped by a pass interference penalty, and with 7:18 left in regulation Spence found Klotz for a 10 yard screen pass touchdown to pull within a score at 28-21. The defense stepped up once again for Creek Wood, led by Blake Bellamy who sacked Zimmerman on the ensuing drive, and the Red Hawks got the ball back. As the somewhat smaller crowd stomped on the bleachers on a cool night on Highway 47, Creek Wood drove calmly down the field in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter and tied the game with 1:20 left as Spence continued the stellar Red Hawk passing attack with an 18 yard strike to Jonathan McCloud. Spence’s extra point made it 28-28, and despite some tentative testing of the waters the Jackets played it safe and went to overtime.

Momentum was already wearing red at that point, but Fairview won the overtime coin toss. Since TSSAA overtime rules state that each team must possess the ball with a first and goal from the ten yard line in each overtime, the Yellow Jackets forced Creek Wood to set the tempo. If Fairview’s defense turned away the Red Hawks, the visitors could steal a win with a score. That strategy backfired, however, as the fired-up Red Hawks ran the option on the first play. Spence kept the ball running off right end, and just before he took a punishing hit the senior pitched to his standing running back Klotz. The do-it-all back rammed his way into the end zone untouched, and Creek Wood had its first lead of the night. Spence nailed the point after, and it was 35-28 with Fairview needing an answer to keep playing.

The Red Hawk defense stood tall again and drove the Yellow Jackets backwards, turning them away on a four and out on a drive that started first and goal, and a sea of red swarmed to the goal line on the home side’s right. The Red Hawks avenged an embarrassing road loss from last season, overcame a two score deficit in the fourth quarter, and handed a district loss to a playoff team all in one fourth down stop. The Red Hawks won 35-28 in overtime, in a three hour marathon game in “The Woods.”

Creek Wood improves to 2-2 overall, 1-1 in District 11-AA. Creek Wood travels to Waverly Central (3-0, 1-0) next week, after the Tigers thumped Stewart County 53-14. Fairview (2-2, 1-2) hosts Montgomery Central, which lost a 14-13 heartbreaker at home against Hickman County. The Tigers and Bulldogs (3-0, 2-0) are two of the four unbeaten teams in 11-AA, along with Lewis County (3-0, 1-0) and powerhouse Camden Central (4-0, 3-0). After the Waverly game, Creek Wood will host Stewart County before getting a bye week.

Dickson County struggled way down in Germantown on Friday night. The Cougars were looking to snap a two game losing streakagainst the Houston Mustangs but the offense continued to struggle.

In the first quarter, Houston got a four yard rushing touchdown from sophomore Seth Cartwright. The score put Dickson in a 7-0 hole but Jacob Murphree rallied the Cougars early in the second quarter. Murphree rolled to his right and hit Isaiah Burns on a corner route, Burns got a huge block from Kincaid Lewis and took the pass 56 yards for a touchdown.

After exchanging possessions in the second quarter Houston would get a pair of field goals in the final three minutes of the half to lead 13-7 at halftime.

The first four minutes of the third quarter would seal Dickson’s fate. Houston took the second half kick off down the field for a 36 yard passing touchdown; Jared Schmidt to Emmett Whitaker. Devontae Sanders seemed to get turned around on the play but still nearly got a hand on the ball before it was caught by Whitaker. On the ensuing possession Jacob Williams threw an interception to the 40 yard line. Schmidt hooked up with Chanse Pullen this time from 40 yards out for another score, The Mustangs lead 27-7 until the midpoint of the fourth quarter when Colby Cartwright rumbled in from 28 yards out to balloon the lead to 34-7.

Collier Wolcott scored late from two yards out to make the final margin 34-13 after Williams missed the extra point. Williams also missed a pair of first half field goal attempts; one wide left, the other well short.

Dickson County will return home Friday to host Brentwood at 7pm, A-1 Signs Pregame show starts at 6:30.
