The Creek Wood football team had one more dress rehearsal for the playoff stretch run on Friday night, welcoming the Sycamore War Eagles to Creek Wood Stadium. The Red Hawks outplayed the visitors for most of the night, holding the Sycamore offense in check behind the stellar play of Colton Stewart. However, the CWHS offense stalled in the red zone and mental errors including penalties and turnovers clipped their wings, keeping Sycamore in the game despite an inability to move the ball. The Red Hawks scored only once, on a passing play from Timmy Randolph to J. J. Higgins, but Sycamore answered back on aRead More →

The White House Heritage Patriots came into Charlotte as heavy underdogs Friday night. After all, they came in 0-6, and Creek Wood was celebrating homecoming. The Pats gave the home side all it could handle, however, as the Red Hawk defense forced an end-zone incompletion with no time on the clock to salt away a 21-14 victory. The Red Hawks started the game with a dominant first quarter, shutting down the Heritage offense and running the ball well, but the home side only mustered a single score. The Patriots tied the score at 7-7 off a breakout rush, but Creek Wood answered back for aRead More →

After beating rival Dickson County by 27 points in Week 1, the Creek Wood football team started out with a thud against Cheatham County on Friday night. The Red Hawks gave up a score on the opening drive, fumbled on their first offensive play, and thus allowed another scoring drive. In short, Creek Wood was down 12-0 before running its second offensive play. Luckily for the Red Hawks, games are a lot longer than a couple of series. On a perfect night for football, the visitors pitched a shutout for the rest of the first half as both sides traded turnovers and field position. InRead More →

In 2015, Creek Wood looked to have the season-opening rivalry showdown against Dickson County sewed up at home. The Cougars were able to rally back in the waning minutes, with time kept on the field, and broke the hearts of Red Hawk nation. In 2016, behind former head coach turned interim coach Chuck Daniel, Creek Wood took the opener at Dickson. In 2017, former Red Hawk quarterback Houston Thiel made his head coaching debut, and he gave Creek Wood what it had been waiting for–sweet revenge. Creek Wood reeled off a 12-0 lead to open the contest against their in-county rivals, but mistakes led toRead More →

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 →
