Class 4A Johnson County lights up scoreboard, beats CAK 37-24

Christian Academy of Knoxville fought a tough battle against Johnson County Friday night at JCHS. The Region 1-4A Longhorns came out on top of the Region 2-2A Warriors, 37-24.

CAK drops to 1-2 overall, 0-1 in the region, while the Longhorns improve on their perfect record 3-0 and 1-0.

“It didn’t go real well,” CAK head coach Bill Young said. “We made some mistakes on the kicking game. Johnson County ran a kickoff back for a touchdown, we fumbled a couple of punts and that didn’t help us. They had a real good ballgame.”

The game got off in favor of CAK with a 25-yard field goal by Matthew Warren. The Longhorns answered back with a 90-yard kickoff return by Tyler Leonard.

After the returned kickoff, CAK’s Jeremy Miller caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Chris Cates. The point after by Warren put the Warriors ahead 10-7. The last score of the first quarter would be a 5-yard run by Johnson County’s Jesse Atwood.

The second quarter was more of a one-sided battle. Johnson County scored on a 25-yard field goal and a 22-yard run by Atwood, making it 24-10. Atwood would convert on another touchdown run, the second a 76-yard hustle. It was 30-10 at the half.

CAK put up the first points of the second half with a 4-yard touchdown run by Bo Sanford in the fourth quarter. Sanford made an impact on both sides of the ball, recording two unassisted tackles, three assisted tackles and a broken up pass defensively. As a runningback, Sanford scored two TDs.

The Longhorns answered CAK with a 3-yard Atwood run. The last score of the night would go to CAK. Sanford caught a 20-yard pass from Cates and Warren added the point.
