High school football Week 5 recap


12:04 AM, Sep. 22, 2012 EDT

Many East Tennessee schools had a bye this week, but there were still plenty of games to keep the fans happy.

The marquee game pitted Webb against Catholic in the USA Today High School Sports Game of the Week on 10News2.

The Spartans turned a pair of Catholic turnovers into two T.K. Kelly touchdown runs en route to a 13-0 victory.

Catholic's offense was slowed all night by penalties and turnovers. The closest the Irish came to scoring was a blocked 40-yard field goal attempt in the second half.

There was plenty of offense out in Corryton where CAK and Gibbs battled.

Corey Rathbone provided some balance to CAK's potent air attack. The senior running back scored three times and rushed for 131 yards in the Warriors 42-33 win.

Lenoir City ended Kingston's hopes for an undefeated season, handing the Yellow Jackets a 42-14 loss.

Clinton finally snapped its 17-game losing streak, beating Campbell County 24-8.

The Dragons last win was on October 1, 2010 when they beat Central 28-20.

Another winless team, Austin-East, didn't fare as well. The Roadrunners lost 29-14 at Brainerd to fall to 0-6 for the first time since 1977.

Loudon converted a two-point attempt to take an 8-7 lead early in the game and then held on to win by the same score.

Anderson County continues to maintain balance in its offense with Andy Long rumbling through the Halls defense. The Mavericks rout Halls, 43-6.

Gatlinburg-Pittman is coming on strong midway through the season. The Highlanders beat previously unbeaten Gibbs last week and rolled over Unicoi County, 34-7 this week to move to 3-2.

Up the Parkway in Pigeon Forge, the Tigers raised money for the American Cancer Society with a Pink Out game. Fans wore pink shirts while the Tigers sported pink socks and black jerseys with pink letters and numbers. Pigeon Forge picked up its second win of the season, beating Grainger 30-18.

Greenback pushed its spotless record to 6-0 with a 41-6 win over Cloudland. The Cherokees' defense allows an average of just 3.5 points per game while the offense has rolled up 267 points.

Greenback started 6-0 last year but was clobbered 40-0 by Grace Christian in its seventh game. The Cherokees get another shot at the Rams next week.

In the lone District 4-AAA game, William Blount edged Heritage 13-2. Lane Bloom provided most of the offense with a long touchdown run.

Fulton continues to plow through its schedule moving to 4-1 with a 42-7 win on the road at Rhea County. The Falcons will be tested next week against district rival Gibbs.

Bearden, Farragut, Jefferson County, West, Morristown West, Morristown East, Sevier County, Scott County, Union County, Oneida, Oliver Springs, Oakdale and Coalfield all had open dates this week.
