Kenwood High Knights Football pulls away in second half to defeat Northeast Eagles, awaits possible playoff berth
Clarksville, TN - It took a while for the Kenwood High School football team to get its offense going, October 30th versus District 10-AAA opponent Northeast High School, but the Knights exploded for 26 second-half points to pull away from the Eagles, 40-7.
With the win, Kenwood (5-5, 4-3 District 10-AAA) all but guarantees itself a spot in the Tennessee State Secondary Athletic Association playoff field – which starts November 7th.
The Knights were only able to score one offensive touchdown versus Northeast (2-8, 2-5 District 10-AAA) in the first half, but scored on each of its first three drives after intermission to blow the game open.
Clarksville, TN – The final week of the regular season high school football is here. This is the last chance for teams to play for the regular season championship, playoff possibilities or just pride.
The District 10-AAA regular season champion was secured last week. Another team earned their first District 10-AAA victory. Although some teams know their season is coming to an end this week, no team will finish the regular season winless.
Clarksville, TN – Most of the Friday night lights were off in Clarksville last Friday because all the District 10-AAA football teams were on their Fall break.
However, while those teams were resting and gearing up for their last two games of the regular season, both the Clarksville Academy Cougars and the Fort Campbell Falcons were handling their business at home.
Clarksville, TN – The countdown until the end of the regular season continues and only two games separate most of the District 10-AAA football teams. After week 8, no team is undefeated overall, but one team is undefeated in league play and they have almost locked up the regular season champion spot.
With the Fall break, most of the teams have two weeks to prepare for their last two regular season games. The race so tight, these last two games could decide which teams will get to play at home in front of their own fans in the post season.
It was District 10-AAA competition across the board and some fans got some early relief from the relentless weather as the outcomes of the games were determined early.
With only three games remaining in the regular season a new leader has emerged at the top and the lone winless team picked up their first victory.
