  Email   Print

Rock Springs took control of the game in the third quarter with three touchdowns to defeat Whitworth-Buchanan 30-6 for the Rutherford County Middle School Football Championship. In a game heard on NewsRadio WGNS Sunday afternoon from Siegel High, the Knights' Blake Watkins led his team to a score on the opening drive of the second half and they didn't look back...

Bryan Barrett and Jon Dinkins with the call. Watkins would add a 23-yard touchdown just three minutes later. He also scored the game's only score in the first half. He finished the game with 179-yards on 14 carries. Whitworth-Buchanan's only score came early in the fourth, but poor field position and a stingy Rock Springs defense kept them out of the end zone. Mookie Wilson led the Yellow Jackets with 82-yards on eight carries, one rushing touchdown and he was 2-of-7 passing for 107-yards. Rock Springs avenged their only loss during the regular season, win the county championship and finish the season with a 7-and-1 record. Whitworth-Buchanan also finished at 7-and-1.
