The¬†in county rivalry between Dickson (0-1) and Creek Wood (1-0) once had an obvious gap between “big brother” and “little brother.” On Friday night the Cougars found out that eventually little brother grows up. Dickson struggled to find any offensive rhythm, outside of a three minute stretch in the second¬†quarter. That offensive slump paired with Creek Wood’s impressive running game led to a shocking 39-12 loss in the season opener. Creek Wood jumped out early with a four and a half, ten play drive, that covered 65 yards. A blocked extra point gave the Cougars a little momentum before entering their first drive down 6-0.Read More →

The win comes against arguably the second best team in District 11AAA and gives Dickson a full game advantage over the rest of the league as the last remaining unbeaten team within the district.
