Boyd-Buchanan Prevails, 21-6, Over Oneida

Friday, November 9, 2012 - by B.B. Branton

Boyd-Buchanan used ball control and a strong defense to defeat host Oneida, 21-6, Friday in a TSSAA 2A second round playoff football game. 

Steady-handed junior quarterback Jim Cardwell tossed touchdown passes to Chase Miller and Grant Mathis to conclude time-consuming drives in the second and third quarters, respectively. Senior Rance Harden ran seven yards for the Bucs third touchdown in the fourth quarter as Caleb Antwine made good on all three extra point attempts.

Next Game: Boyd-Buchanan stays on the road next Friday and travels to Knoxville to take on a No.

1 seed in Knox. Grace which defeated Silverdale Baptist, 28-20.  

The Bucs (10-1) opened the scoring with a 10-play drive in the second quarter capped by Cardwell finding Miller for a 14-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead heading to the locker room. 

Oneida (9-2) took the second half kickoff and quickly moved 80 yards in seven plays in 3:30 as Sam Williams scored on a three-yard run, but the Bucs blocked the extra point attempt to hold a 7-6 lead. 

The Bucs took back the momentum on their next possession with a 70-yard, 12-play scoring drive as Cardwell connected with Mathis on a 10-yard play and a 14-6 lead at 3:42 of the third quarter. 

The visiting Blue and Gold scored again at 7:23 of the fourth quarter as Rance Harden found the end zone from seven yards out. 

The Bucs’ Miller ended Oneida’s final drive with an interception in the final minute.

The loss snapped a nine-game win streak for Oneida as Boyd-Buchanan is now 3-0 vs. tin playoffs games with the other wins coming in 1998 and 1999. 

Good Defense: The victors are only the third team to hold Oneida to less than 10 points … Oneida entered the game averaging 32 points a game and allowing only 9.5 points a contest. 

Notes: Boyd-Buchan is now 34-13 overall in playoff games starting in 1996 and 10-4 the past five seasons ... The seniors are 41-10 in four years … most wins by a senior class since the seniors in the fall 2004 were 44-12 with a state title in 2003 …

Problems With The Proposed Apartments In Lookout Valley

I am deeply troubled at the way in which this proposal has been handled. The blatant disregard for the residents of Kelly's Ferry Road and the wishes of the Lookout Valley Area Plan (which was adopted by the city in 2003) by Chip Henderson and Tommy Austin amazes me. Yes, there was a meeting of the Lookout Valley Neighborhood association in August, but it wasn't on its normal ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Ooltewah & The Bullies

It included sketchy details of the rape, and subsequent surgery, of an Ooltewah High School basketball player who had been assaulted by his own teammates at a Gatlinburg holiday tournament. Today ...
