Creek Wood interim Head Football Coach Chuck Daniel had a simple answer on the RFC Sports Hour Wednesday night on WDKN and The One FM when asked what Kenwood would do offensively besides run the ball with Antwuan Branch on Friday night. To paraphrase–They’ll run Branch, then run him some more…and then they’ll run it with Branch again. The prediction came true as the Knights came down from Clarksville and spoiled Senior Night. Branch touched the ball on 8 of Kenwood’s first 9 plays, accounted for 80% of the teams yards from scrimmage in the entire game, and finished with 6 touchdowns as the KnightsRead More →

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win Creek Wood desperately needed. The Red Hawks continued their long run at home by picking up their first Region win of the season, 36-34 over Hillwood on Friday night. The Hilltoppers came in 1-1 in the Region, while Creek Wood was 0-2.

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.

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.

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 →
