CAK makes single digit points count

Christian Academy of Knoxville keeps its state title dreams alive with a win against the South Greene Rebels Friday night, Nov. 3, at Greeneville. The Warriors took care of the Rebels with a defensive stand, 9-0.

CAK brings its winning streak to four and its record to 8-3.

“I thought we played really well,” CAK head coach Bill Young said. “We did a really good job on defense and stepped up on offense. South Greene has a really great football team.”

It truly was a defensive ballgame. It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that the scoreboard was lit up from a touchdown.

CAK got on the board with a handoff to Keenan Kolinsky, who then threw to Derron Logan for a 17-yard touchdown.

Joseph Bennett got a hold of a Rebel receiver in the end zone to give CAK a safety.

Bo Sanford intercepted the Rebels late in the fourth to spread relief throughout the CAK bench.

Quarterback Chris Cates completed 22 of his 40 passes for a total of 242 yards. Jeremy Miller did double duty against the Rebels, racking up 81 yards on five passes and tallying three tackles and two assists on the defensive side of the ball.

Next up for CAK will be the the state’s No. 1-ranked, two-time defending Class 2A champion Alcoa Tornadoes at AHS, who shut out CAK in its second game of the season, 42-0.

“Obviously they’re a really good team,” Young said. We have to minimize our mistakes. They are so good on offense they’re going to get some points. We have to execute well on offense and play real sound on defense, don’t make it easy for them to score.”

Alcoa (9-2) has also claimed three more shutouts on the season, one coming last week versus Cumberland Gap.

Game time is set for 7 p.m.
