Former Head Football Coach Troy Williams once said, “the point of Homecoming is the football game on Friday night.” Homecoming 2016 certainly delivered a game for the ages filled with heroics,  controversy, and a heartbreaking end for the Cougar faithful. Dickson 1-5(0-3) came in to the game desperately needing a win to stay in the playoff picture but Rossview had other ideas. The Hawks scored early after a Cougar three and out it took just two plays, both Fred Orr runs, for Rossview to go up 7-0 with 10:02 left in the first quarter. Dickson responded with a lengthy drive of more than four minutes.Read More →

Little things had plagued the Creek Wood Red Hawks for almost a month. They lost a pair of games by a combined 7 points, then lost by 21 in a game where they didn’t fumble and were plus-one in turnover margin. Special teams, fumbles, and interceptions proved costly in a 3-week stretch that led to a 1-4 start and a 4 game losing streak. However, all of that seemed like ancient history as the Red Hawks hammered the East Hickman Eagles 43-6 on Homecoming Friday however, and Creek Wood looked like a well-oiled machine. Creek Wood won the opening toss and took the ball first,Read More →

The Cougars 1-4(0-2) gave themselves a big whole to dig out of in Region 7-AAAAA following their 45-26 loss to Brentwood 2-3(1-1) Friday night. The loss put’s Dickson one game out of playoff contention and in a three way tie for last with West Creek and Clarksville Northeast. Meanwhile, Brentwood slipped into a tie, with Clarksville, for the final playoff spot in the region. Dickson gave the Bruins a head start right out of the gate. After receiving the opening kickoff the Cougar offense stalled with a three and out and Trey Weidman came on to punt. Weidman chose to try and convert the fourthRead More →

The Creek Wood Red Hawks battled the Lipscomb Academy Mustangs on Friday night in a Region battle, but the numbers don’t tell the whole story. The Mustangs got a decisive 55-34 win, but the game was both more and less competitive than the score would have you believe–more competitive, as it was a 14-point game at the half, and less competitive because it was an extra-point away from triggering the mercy rule in the third quarter. Lipscomb Academy looks like it was dominant, but the home side helped the Red Hawks with several costly turnovers; Creek Wood gifted the Mustangs as well, in a gameRead More →

Friday night’s Dickson County game bore a shocking resemblance to a high school track meet rather than a high school football game. Dickson and Spring Hill combined for a total of 1039 yards of offense and 13 touchdowns on the way to a 56-46 final in favor of the Raiders. Right away the tempo and tone were set by Dontae Smith for the Raiders. He took his first carry 74 yards in just 12 seconds to put Spring Hill on top 6-0 after a missed PAT. Over the next 9:17 the two teams combined for 42 points. Spring Hill got two more touchdown runs fromRead More →

The Creek Wood Red Hawks rolled into Friday night’s non-Region matchup against old foe Cheatham County with a dual threat at running back, a nearly even series with the Cubs, and the desperate need to pick up a win. After all, Creek Wood had lost two straight, at home no less, after a Week One win over archrival Dickson County. Unfortunately a second straight game against a former CWHS assistant and a triple-option offense had a similar result, as the Red Hawks dropped a tough one 30-28. Cheatham County only attempted three passes all night, as Landon Barnes went 2-for-3 for 33 yards through the air.Read More →

Dickson County got off to a fast start Friday night but the Centennial defense sank the Cougars with four interceptions on the way to a 56-28 region loss. Dickson got off to a quick start after an early defensive stop. The offense put together a methodical drive of over four minutes that resulted in a one yard touchdown plunge by Andrew Stanford to put Dickson up 7-0 midway through the first quarter. Centennial needed just three plays to cut into the lead. Zyon Lee took the ball 69 yards on a dive play cutting the deficit to one. For the third straight week a Dickson opponentRead More →

The Creek Wood Red Hawks and the visiting Montgomery Central Indians put on a show fitting a pair of rivals meeting for the 14th time. They matched each other step-for-step, but Red Hawk turnovers led to Central points early. As Creek Wood tried to rally, special teams issues kept the Red Hawks from tying the score after a 7-7 ballgame became a 21-7 deficit in the second quarter. In the end, two failed point-after tries and a field goal proved the difference, and the Indians escaped with a 38-33 win. The two sides traded punts on their opening drives, before a Creek Wood fumble gaveRead More →

The Cougars (1-1) held on late to top the Lions 55-40 on Saturday night after their game was moved due to lightning on Friday night. The weather was not an issue by the time the teams returned to play late Saturday evening and the teams showed no effects from the postponement. Dickson’s offense has a history of slow starts over the last year but Andrew Stanford helped spark a fast first quarter for the Cougars. Stanford took his first carry 81 yards for an apparent touchdown but a holding penalty brought the ball back to the 24 yard line. After another penalty Jacob Murphree found TreyRead More →

The Red Hawks’ football season opener was delayed from Friday to Saturday due to storms. Both sides struck quickly, scoring a touchdown each in the first minute of the game. And after a field position battle for the rest of the first half, Creek Wood and Fairview were knotted up in a 7-7 stalemate at the start of the shortened halftime. After the half, the visiting Yellow Jackets found some big plays to counteract their mistakes and penalties, while Creek Wood’s mistakes began to pile up, leading Fairview to a 38-13 win in Charlotte. Two plays and a Creek Wood penalty into the ballgame, FairviewRead More →
