Make it 8-0 for No. 5 CAK

Christian Academy of Knoxville’s winning streak on the football field continues.

CAK, No. 5 state-ranked in Class 3A, beat District 4-AA rival Kingston 33-7 on the road Friday, Oct. 16, bringing its record to 8-0 overall and 4-0 in the district.

“It was a big game for us as far as locking up an automatic bid for the playoffs,” head coach Rusty Bradley said.

CAK quarterback Quinn Epperly connected with freshman Davis Howell for the touchdown and a 6-0 lead.

Kingston went three and out on its first possession, and CAK’s offense began at the KHS 34.

It took six plays and about 3:30 minutes for the Warriors to score again. This time, sophomore Josh Henson caught a 6-yard pass for the TD.

The Yellowjackets had possession for the remainder of the first quarter and came within 20 yards of the end zone but weren’t able to score.

CAK led Kingston (4-4 overall, 2-2 in the district) 12-0 at the half.

Howell, who led CAK with eight receptions for 113 yards, caught a 13-yard touchdown pass. Matthew Warren’s extra point made it 19-0.

CAK scored quickly on its first drive of the fourth quarter. Senior Blake Houser caught a 9-yard TD pass on the second play.

Epperly finished the night completing 22 of 33 passes for 251 yards, no interceptions and four touchdowns.

Bradley said Epperly “threw the ball really well.”

The last Warriors touchdown was courtesy of tailback Carson Pegram, who had 74 of the team’s 110 rushing yards.

While CAK had 361 total offensive yards, Kingston only had 214.

Three defensive players stood out according to Bradley.

“Chris Jaeger had 10 tackles. J-D Arnett had an interception where he actually caught it with his legs as he was falling down. It was pretty impressive. Marcus [Walker] had seven tackles. J-D had a couple of big hits as well as his interception in the secondary for us,” he said.

One of Jaeger’s tackles was a sack for an 8-yard loss. Jacob Duncan, Colby Maddux and Matthew Smith also had seven tackles.
