Week 8 of high school football featured plenty of games with playoff and district championship implications.

Among those was our USA Today High School Sports Game of the Week between West and Catholic.

The Fighting Irish came into the game needing wins in two of their final three contests to have a chance at a playoff spot.

West took control of the game early as Ryan Francis threw a touchdown and ran for two more to put the Rebels up 19-0. They would go on to win 41-20.

Fulton and Carter were tied atop the District 3-AA standings at the beginning of the night. The Falcons ended Carter's hopes of a district title pretty quickly.

A short touchdown run from Jolante Castle, and scoring runs of 51 and 27 yards from Daryl Rollins had Fulton up 21-0 in the first quarter.

Xavier Hawkins had an interception to set up one of the scores and Dean Taylor, despite a broke hand, picked off at tipped pass to set up his own touchdown catch in the second quarter. Fulton clinches the district championship with a 53-0 win.

South-Doyle beat Seymour 34-0 for its second shutout in a row and fourth on the season.

Sevier County beat Cherokee 52-20 to set up a match-up next week between the Smoky Bears and South-Doyle that will likely decide the IMAC (District 2-AAA) champion.

Grace Christian locked up the District 3-A crown beating Midway 61-28 despite a slow start.

Oneida took over the lead in District 4-A with a 21-14 win over Coalfield. The Indians need one win in their final two games or a Coalfield loss to Oakdale to win the district.

Charlie High threw seven touchdown passes as CAK dominated Kingston 56-31. The senior completed 22 of 27 passes for 274 yards and came out of the game after one drive in the third quarter.

Oak Ridge pounded Hardin Valley 47-6 on senior night. The Wildcats need just one win in their final two games to clinch the District 3-AAA title.

Powell narrowly slipped by Campbell County, 20-13 to set up a meeting with Central on Thursday that will likely decided the district runner-up spot. Shar'ron Moore had two sacks for the Panthers.

In the 10News2 game, Bearden took care of business, beating Heritage 42-6.
