CBFO pair advance to Metro grid title games
XFL minor pee wees, AFC supermidgets among those featured in this week’s championship games

A doubleheader sweep against Powell has put two CBFO youth football teams into this week’s Knox Metro Youth Football League championship games.

The XFL minor pee wees improved its record to 13-1 overall following a 27-6 drubbing of Powell in the league playoff semi-finals Saturday morning at the John Tarleton football complex.

Already up 14-0 at the half, CBFO got a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown from Aaron Blance and a 4-yard TD pass from quarterback Danny May to Christian Jetton.

Aaron Aucker caught May’s 8-yard conversion pass to end the CBFO scoring.

Head coach Mark Jetton’s CBFO XFL minor pee wees square off against Pilot beginning at 8 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Oct. 27, in the championship game.

Meanwhile, head coach Doug Mooney and his CBFO AFC supermidgets enjoyed their first playoff victory ever as a team coming up the league ranks with a 14-8 victory versus Powell Saturday morning at Tarleton.

Overcame an early 8-0 deficit, CBFO tied the game on a 57-yard TD run from Chris Bass, followed by his two-point conversion run.

A 65-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kyle Boden to David Allen midway into the third quarter proved to be the game-winning play.

Nick Bender was among those praised for stellar defensive play by the coaches during a post-game celebration.

Mooney’s team now advances to the title game at 10 a.m. Saturday.
