11:58 PM, Sep. 20, 2012 EDT

There were some extra games on the high school schedule on Thursday night, with eight teams in action.

Maryville and Oak Ridge, both undefeated, battled in the Secret City.

The Rebels got on the board first when Nick Myers hit Logan Winders over the middle for a score. Junior running back Shawn Prevo made it 14-0 on Maryville's next drive when he scampered 93 yards to the endzone.

The Rebel defense was able to contain dual-threat quarterback Rian Hall as Maryville jumped out to a 31-0 lead. Hall was just 8-21 for 74 yards.

Oak Ridge finally got on the board in the third quarter with Elliot Normand at quarterback and Hall playing receiver. Hall finished with 63 receiving yards and a score.

Maryville held off a late surge by the Wildcats to win 38-23, extending its winning streak to 34 games.

Over in South Knoxville, the surprising South-Doyle Cherokees hosted Carter.

South-Doyle's defense shutout the Hornets and contributed an interception return touchdown.

Jocquez Bruce provided the offense, juking his way through the Carter defense on two touchdown runs. Bruce carried 13 times for 125 yards.

South-Doyle won 23-0 to start the year 5-0 for the first time in school history.

Karns led Powell 7-0 in their district 3-AAA match-up but the Panthers defense went into shutdown mode from there in the 21-7 Powell victory.

Jacob Bezark picked off two passes for Powell and Michael Brown had an interception as well.

Central honored deceased student Joshua Moore at its game against Hardin Valley.

The Bobcats coaching staff wore purple in honor of Moore, who died of leukemia earlier this year.

JaJuan Stinson scored from five yards out late in regulation to give the Bobcats a 27-20 win. Central has now won three games in a row and matched its 2011 win total.

Week 5 continues with a full slate of games on Friday, including the USA Today High School Sports Game of the Week between Catholic and Webb.
