The Creek Wood Red Hawks knew they would have their hands full against Clarksville Northwest on Friday night. The resurgent Vikings were enjoying one of the best stretches of football success they had seen in quite some time, were in second place in Region 6-4A, and were playing at home on Senior Night. The Red Hawks would need a solid effort to knock off the Green and Gold, plus some help from Hillwood beating Montgomery Central, to slip into the postseason. While the Northwest offense was balanced and hard to handle, the defense frustrated the Red Hawks throughout the night, and the Indians led HillwoodRead More →

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 team’s yards from scrimmage in the entire game, and finished with 6 touchdowns as the KnightsRead More →

The Creek Wood Red Hawks rolled into a Week 8 matchup against Loretto with everything on their side. The 0-7 Mustangs were making a 2 hour trip from near the Alabama line, heading to a team playing its 6th home game of the season. The Red Hawks were on a 2-game win streak, were looking to beat their second winless team of the season, and skate into the bye week with a 0.500 win percentage. Loretto didn’t get the memo, and Creek Wood had a tougher challenge that one might expect. Despite setting up a Mustang touchdown with a muffed punt in the third andRead 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. However, the two teams were mirror images of one another, scrappy sides that liked to run and throw from a spread offense and hit hard in a 3-4 defense. Even when it comes to their schedules thus far Hillwood and Creek Wood matched up well on paper, as the 3-3 Toppers had beaten teams withRead 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 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 →

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 →

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 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 →
