Surprising Govs next
William Blount upsets No.1 KD-B, 2nd-round playoff rematch set Friday


Thanks to a major upset, Region 2-5A No. 2 seed Farragut has to face another angry team seeking revenge in the playoffs.

William Blount (7-4/No. 4 seed Region 2-5A), fresh off its 13-10 upset of No. 1 state-ranked Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett on the road last Friday, travels back to Bill Clabo Field for a second-round state playoff game Friday, Nov. 10. Opening kickoff is 7 p.m.

The Governors lost a dramatic 17-16 overtime decision at FHS Sept. 29.

Farragut players Adam Wigren and Michael Lawrence remembered facing a “physical” WBHS team with “good defense.”

FHS head coach Eddie Courtney said he was impressed with the Governor offense against KD-B, “the way they ran the football ... they were able to run the ball at ’em and run the clock.”

“On defense, they’re very aggressive football team.”
