CAK blasts previous unbeaten Stone

Both Christian Academy of Knoxville and Stone Memorial came into their Friday, Sept. 3, game undefeated.

One of them was walking away with a loss, and early on CAK made sure it wasn't them. In the end, the Warriors won 55-15.

Josh Henson and Quinn Epperly started the Warriors' scoring spree when Henson caught Epperly's pass and reached the end zone.

Henson, a junior, ended the night with two touchdowns and said, “The offensive line did really well. It was my first time running the ball this season, so my second touchdown was nice. Quinn did a great job passing. It was fun.”

Warriors head coach Rusty Bradley said, “Josh is a great player. He's very physical … He's one of those guys that just has a nose for the end zone.”

Zach Mead also caught a touchdown pass. Reece Duncan's extra point put the Warriors up 13-0.

Early in the second quarter, sophomore Charlie High set up a TD with an interception. “Coach White told me to stay back, and I did so I saw where he was passing,” High said.

Bradley said, “Charlie's a football player; that's the thing I love about him. He's such a smart kid. He's a competitive young man. He's a great athlete.

“He'll be a great quarterback for us in the future.”

Tyler Eichholtz added an interception. “Clay Powers got to the quarterback so it was a bad pass, and I just happen to be in the right place at the right time.”

About his defense, Bradley said, “I thought they did a really good job, especially after that first drive, of swarming to the football and just playing smart.”

Epperly, (15-of-20 passing for 237 yards), rushed for 31 yards for a touchdown in the second half while Henson tackled a kick returner for a safety, bringing CAK's lead to 41-7.

High quarterbacked most of the second half and threw for 55 yards.
