A Region 6-3A contest with first-place implications turned into a blowout on Friday at Fairview.
The Yellow Jackets (5-2, 3-0) won their third game in a row with a 38-12 drumming of Camden (3-4, 2-1), sending the Lions into a three-way tie for second in the league, a game behind Fairview.
Running back Logan Nardozzi led the way for the Yellow Jackets, rushing for 138 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. He eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark on the season in the win, along with scoring his 10th rushing touchdown of the year.
Fairview will hit the road next week to take on region foe Harpeth before a bye. It’ll then return for two straight home games to end the regular season.
Ravenwood 70, Dickson County 6
If Ravenwood was worried about traveling to Dickson County without head coach Matt Daniels, it didn’t show it.
The Raptors (5-1, 3-1), whose head coach was suspended this week due to a practice incident involving an assistant coach, took care of the Cougars (1-6, 0-3) in dominating fashion 70-6.
Ravenwood is now a half game behind Brentwood for the Region 6-6A lead after the Bruins defeated Independence Friday, and it could be without Daniels for additional games. Williamson County Schools is currently involved in an investigation of the matter.
A three-game road swing ends for the Raptors next week, as they’ll travel to Christ Presbyterian Academy for a special Thursday night affair before returning home for their last three games of the regular season.
Nolensville 13, Tullahoma 7
The best start in school history got a little sweeter on Friday for Nolensville.
Tullahoma (4-3, 1-2) made the trip to Nolensville (6-0, 3-0) and was handed a 13-7 loss thanks in part to the Knights’ defense, which has been stingy this season.
Standout two-way player Tim Coutras intercepted a pass in the waning moments, his second of the game, to close out the win. He also had a forced fumble and caught three passes for 51 yards on offense.
The Knights have allowed only 34 points in six games this season, including two straight shutouts going into Friday night. They’ve only allowed two touchdowns in the last four games.
Nolensville is tied with Marshall County atop a very deep and talented Region 4-4A. It’s supposed to travel to winless Glencliff to play on Thursday next week.
