Lebanon 18 Appalachia 0
The Appalachia Bulldogs traveled to Lebanon to take on the Pioneers and test the waters to see how far they've come in the middle of a two game winning streak. The Dawgs found the going rough as they found themselves shutout for the first time in 11 seasons as they went down 18-0. Lebanon TB Dewey Lawrence led the way with TD runs of 13 and 53 yards, both in the first half as the Pioneers inproved to 6-1 on the season. Lebanon ground out 338 yards on the ground and led 12-0 at the half before Jarrod Farmer salted the game with a 1 yard run in the 3rd to make it 18-0. The Dawgs managed little offense as they rushed for only 120 yards on 41 attempts. QB Brad Barnette managed to pass for 75 yards on 8 completions but was intercepted twice. The Dawgs will try to get back on track next week as they host old rival Gate City. I'd have more to say about this game as well as the other contests, but I was out of town and the Kingsport paper did their usual sterling job of putting little more out than the boxscores. My apologies.

Honaker 55 J.J.Kelly 7
The Kelly Indians looked to win their third in a row over Honaker and early on it looked like it might happen as Tommy Asbury went over from a yard out to make it 7-0 after Asbury added the PAT kick. Honaker battled back as Jason Dye bulled over from the 1, but the PAT was missed and Kelly led 7-6 after the 1st quarter. It was all downhill from there though as Honaker scored 22 2nd quarter points to lead 28-7 at the half and continued to pull away in the 2nd half en route to a 55-7 pasting of the Indians. The Tiger rushed for a total of 413 yards and passed for 142 more as they tallied 555 yards of offense. Honaker and Coeburn are locked in a battle for the last Region D Division 2 playoff spot in a scene that may come down to the last week of the season. It doesn't get any better for Kelly next week as they travel to Powell Valley to take on the state's top ranked team.
