August 31, 2017
Dunlap, TN — Spring City Middle football team won 22-8 at Sequatchie to run their season record to 3-0. Spring City jumped on top with 1:56 left in first quarter, with Cade Cook running the ball in from around the 3 yard line. Two point conversion was no good. Later in the first, Garrett Ramsey broke loose on a 60 yard run to run the score to 12-0 with 6:45 left in second quarter. Sir Alloway was successful on the two point conversion to put the Bulldogs up 14-0 and that was the halftime score, though Bulldogs did threaten late in half but Bulldogs were stopped on 4th and goal at the one yard line.
In the second half, Sequatchie County Middle put together a drive with Harley Meeks taking the ball in from inside the five. He also tacked on the two point conversion to pull Indians within 14-8. Bulldogs took the next kickoff and marched down the field with Sir Alloway providing some good running. Jadden Pankey had a twisting turning run from inside the ten yard line to give the Bulldogs a 20-8 lead and Cade Cook ran in the two point conversion to give the Bulldogs a 22-8 lead which was the final margin.
Coach Loden had predicted a much harder match-up than the first two games of the season and this was the case. Sequatchie was a bigger team with some talented players. Meeks was a load at the running back and the Bulldogs did a good job of containing Meeks until late in the game. Sequatchie also made good on three passes, one for around 30 yards. But the Bulldog defense stepped up when necessary.
There were several leaders who stepped up for the defense on the night. One of those was Caden Wicks. Wicks was in on several tackles on the night. Nose tackle Trent Edwards and Jeremy Easter were also very active on defense with multiple tackles. On offense Cade Cook did excellent job of running offense and Sir Alloway, Jadden Pankey, Austin Brackett and Garrett Ramsey ran well for the Bulldogs.
Spring City will next play at Cherokee Middle in Kingston at 7 pm on Thursday, September 7th.
