CAK, Fulton, Maryville and Webb are headed to state. Each of these schools will compete for state championships at the Blue Cross Bowl in Cookeville.

Webb will play ECS in the DII-A championship game on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 3 P.M Central time (4 P.M. Eastern).

CAK will defend its 3A championship against Milan on Friday at 3 P.M. Central (4 P.M. Eastern). The Warriors beat Milan in last year's championship game.

Fulton will take on Covington at 3 P.M. Central (4 P.M. Eastern) on Saturday in the 4A title game.

Maryville tries for a three-peat on Saturday at 7 P.M. Central (8 P.M. Eastern) against Whitehaven. The Rebels took down Whitehaven in last year's 6A championship game.

Two area schools saw their seasons come to an end on Friday night.

Coalfield took a 7-6 lead into halftime thanks to an Addison Bible interception and a Ryan Hill touchdown pass to Heath Tinker. However, the Yellow Jackets couldn't keep up with Gordonsville in the second half, falling 39-15.

Powell trailed 32-21 in the fourth and battled back with a pair of scores but couldn't recover an onside kick and lost to Columbia 32-27.

Coalfield closes the year at 11-2 while Powell finishes 12-2.

Maryville had a classic battle with Siegel. Stars quarterback Brent Stockstill threw for more than 350 yards while playing on a partially torn ACL.

The Rebels trailed 43-41 and started a drive at their own 37 with 1:50 remaining in the game. Nick Myers hooked up with T.J. Kimble on a 28-yard score to take the lead and the defense held on to claim a 47-43 victory.

CAK led 34-14 at halftime and held off an Elizabethton comeback attempt to win 44-34. Charlie High threw for 383 yards and five touchdowns while Davis Howell caught 10 passes for 187 yards and two scores.

Howell needs seven receptions in the state championship game to break the all-time national record.

Daryl Rollins exploded for 220 yards in the first half including touchdown runs of 68 and 65 yards to give Fulton a 28-14 lead at the break. The Falcons went on to win 41-27 and Rollins finished with over 300 yards rushing.
