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 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 →

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 Creek Wood Red Hawks upset their intra-county rivals the Dickson County Cougars 30-26 on Friday night in Dickson, giving CWHS its second win in eight tries against the older, bigger school, and giving now-interim head coach Chuck Daniel a 1-0 start to his first season back at the Red Hawk helm.
