No. 5 CAK 7-0
Scott County latest Warriors victim, 49-28

Christian Academy of Knoxville’s football team held onto its perfect record, defeating District 4-AA rival Scott County 49-28 Friday, Oct. 2, at CAK.

Offensively the state’s No. 5-ranked Class 3A Warriors, now 3-0 in district and 7-0 overall, attacked both passing and running.

Junior tailback Carson Pegram led the team with 108 rushing yards on 12 carries and two second quarter touchdowns. “I thought Carson ran the ball well and had some nice runs, especially early, and had a couple touchdown runs, which obviously opened things up for us in the run game,” CAK head coach Rusty Bradley said.

Both of CAK’s receivers named Davis had a great night catching the ball. In his first game back following a hamstring injury, Davis Burton led the team with 119 yards on three catches, two for touchdowns.

“I didn’t expect the ball on two of the three catches,” Burton said. “They weren’t working my side, but I pretty much just stopped and caught the ball because there was nobody around me. I used God’s gifts that he’s given me to run fast.”

Freshman Davis Howell led in receptions with seven for 104 yards and a touchdown.

Howell credited Warrior quarterback Quinn Epperly, who had 271 passing yards for the night and three touchdowns. “Quinn was really throwing well tonight,” he said.

The Warriors defense had mixed reviews against Scott County (2-4) according to Bradley. “I felt like the defensive line did a good job at times at getting good pass rush,” he said. However, “We missed some tackles we normally don’t miss.”

Junior linebacker Tyler Eichholtz had six tackles for the night, just behind fellow linebacker Jacob Duncan’s seven.

CAK takes a week off before heading to Kingston Friday, Oct. 16. Opening kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
