CAK stuffs Chiefs, now 6-0

MADISONVILLE — Christian Academy of Knoxville had no trouble overcoming Sequoyah, 48-7, Friday, Sept. 24, even though it’s CAK’s third-straight game traveling.

“Things went really well for us. We scored on every possession offensively in the first half. After [Sequoyah’s] first drive, we held them to three-and-outs the rest of the first half,” head coach Rusty Bradley said.

Senior quarterback Quinn Epperly returned to his starting possession after missing last week’s game due to a concussion, and completed 19 of 23 passes for 281 yards – all in just a quarter and a half.

“Quinn did a nice job coming back after not playing last week. He did a nice job of finding his receivers and allowing things to develop down the field.”

Epperly had a hand in all three first quarter touchdowns. He carried the ball into the end zone the first time, then threw to junior Josh Henson and sophomore Davis Howell.

He started CAK’s second quarter scores by connecting to Howell again, then threw to sophomores Franklin Murchison and Josh Smith.

“Our passing game was working pretty well. Our offensive line did a great job in protection. We really didn’t have any pressures or anything that forced Quinn out of the pocket,” Bradley said.

On the other side of the ball, Bradley added, “I thought we did a nice job of getting guys to the football, getting off blocks and making plays. I thought our defensive line did a nice job of disrupting things up front and allowing our linebackers to make plays.”

Senior Jacob Duncan led CAK in tackles with seven, followed by Tyler Eichholtz, a senior, with six, and Bryson Leinius, also a senior, with five.

Later in the second quarter, Bradley let his backup quarterback, sophomore Charlie High, take some snaps. High threw a TD pass to Smith, and CAK, now 6-0, was up 48-0 at the half.

For the rest of the game, Bradley put in his second string, and said he was pleased with their performance.

“I thought they did a pretty good job. Sequoyah pretty much kept their starters in the second half, so our younger guys were going against their starters. I thought our guys competed, did a nice job,” Bradley said. “They only gave up one touchdown, and they moved the ball OK offensively. It was good to see them compete against older guys.”

CAK travels to Scott County, another 4-AA foe, Friday, Oct. 1. Opening kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
