Week 10 Football – Lipscomb Academy at Christ Presbyterian Academy

CHATTANOOGA – For the fifth consecutive season the Christ Presbyterian Academy football team will play for a Division II-AA state championship.

The Lions stifled the Chattanooga Christian School offense and claimed a 28-13 win in the state semifinals Friday at CCS, which managed its lowest scoring output since a 28-7 loss to McCallie in the season opener back in August. 

Asher Keck rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown, while Crews Law scored twice on the ground, including a 6-yard score with 3:05 to play in the third to extend CPA’s lead to 28-7. Law’s third-quarter score was set up by Leroy Harris’ fumble recovery.

London Humphreys added a 13-yard rushing TD for the Lions, who scored three unanswered touchdowns.

CPA collected 215 yards rushing.

Javoris Havis paced CCS with 121 yards rushing and a first-quarter touchdown.

The Lions will take a week off before returning to Chattanooga for the state championship. CPA will face DII-AA Middle Region rival Lipscomb Academy for a third consecutive season in the final.

The Mustangs, which shutout CPA in last year’s final 27-0, defeated Knoxville Webb 44-7 in the other semifinal Friday night.

Lipscomb Academy won the regular season matchup against the Lions 43-21 on Oct. 21. The two teams will tangle on Dec. 1 for the state title.
