Football – Brentwood at Ravenwood

Trevor Andrews 

Williamson County area teams had two high school football games played on Thursday during a busy Week 9 that also included the cancellation of Summit's home game against Shelbyville. 

The Spartans were credited with COVID-win and clinched the Region 5-5A title with the forfeit.

Friday produced several big games like Brentwood's 42-20 win over Franklin in Region 6-6A, Page's 28-10 win over Columbia and Independence's 56-0 shutout of Dickson County

Here's a closer look at the other six games featuring area teams: 

Ravenwood 48, Smyrna 10

Trevor Andrews completed 16-of-21 passes for 240 yards and five touchdowns, ran in a score and the Raptors raced to a non conference win at Smyrna in Week 9.

Andrews found Jake Briningstool for three touchdowns as the Clemson commit hauled in eight receptions for 147 yards. The senior duo connected on touchdowns of 15, 25 and 44 yards.

Lee Molette and Ross Johnston both added touchdown catches and Justin Smitherman rushed for a 22-yard TD for Ravenwood, which scored the first 21 points and staked a 35-3 lead at the half.

Myles Pollard came up with five tackles to lead the defense and Garrick Cates tallied a sack. Ravenwood out-gained Smyrna 391-239.

Fairview 40, Harpeth 14

Riley Bennett threw for two touchdowns, Logan Nardozzi rushed for two more and the Yellow Jackets cruised past visiting Harpeth in a Week 9 Region 6-3A contest in Fairview.

Bennett threw for 97 yards and connected with Morgan Jean and Bryce Fannin in the endzone. Nardozzi led the ground game with 80 yards on just 10 touches and his two TDs. Brody Cox added a rushing score and Luke Pape scored on a fumble recovery.

Fairview scored the first 40 points in the contest before Harpeth tacked on a couple touchdowns in the fourth.

Witt Chivers (8 tackles), Jacob Clevenger (7 tackles) and Logan Parsons (6 tackles) paced the Yellow Jackets defense along with Pape.

Father Ryan 31, McCallie 7

The Irish continue to impress and clinched a home playoff berth with a Division II-AAA East Region win over defending champion McCallie Friday in Nashville.

Father Ryan came away with three interceptions in the win and shut down the Blue Tornado after allowing a first-quarter score.

Irish quarterback DC Tabscott accounted for three touchdowns in the win, including a 12-yard strike to Richard Bryant and a 7-yarder to Josh Pfiefer. He added a 1-yard touchdown run to end the first half for a 21-7 lead.

Zach Wesnofske tacked on a 28-yard field goal early in the fourth, and Tabscott’s pass to Pfeifer with 9:09 to play capped the scoring.

Middle Tennessee Christian 35, Grace Christian Academy 27

Ashton Kelley completed 25-of-37 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as the Lions fell on the road in a Division II-A East Region game in Murfreesboro.

GCA (4-4, 2-3) dropped into fifth in the region standings with the loss.

Blake Barton rushed for 168 yards and a touchdown and also hauled in six catches for 54 yards, including a 13-yard TD reception for the Lions.

Barton’s 1-yard TD run with 5:31 to play in the third pulled GCA within 28-27, but Middle Tennessee Christian’s Aden Hooper tossed his fourth touchdown of the night to Jonathan Burns for the extra cushion to close the frame and hang on the rest of the way.

Maddux Lambert added nine catches for 89 yards and a TD for the Lions, while Carter Murphy led the defense with eight tackles and a sack. Wynn Hicks came away with an interception as well for GCA.
