Thursday Night Lights: Maryville, Alcoa stomp their foes

The Rebels stomped the Bears down in Cleveland, Tennessee Thursday night.

Maryville and Alcoa both notched wins in the penultimate week of regular season football action Thursday.

The Maryville Rebels (9-0) visited Bradley Central (7-2) in Cleveland, Tennessee and never trailed in a 48-21 rout in the rain.

Special teams and defense starred early for the Rebels. Linebacker T.D. Blackmon caught an interception that led to a field goal to put them up 6-0. Later, a mishandled snap by the Bears' punter on fourth down led to a hit by Trejaun Purty, setting up a Jordan Ervin touchdown. 

Earvin would tack on another touchdown before the half, and quarterback Dylan Hopkins would connect with A.J. Davis for another touchdown. The Rebels led 27-0 at the half and never looked back.

Alcoa (8-1) shut out Red Bank, 28-0. 

In the first quarter, Larry Hodge intercepted a pass which would lead to a one-yard touchdown run by Coltton Wright.

Leading 7-0, Jaylen Meyers called his own number on a QB draw and scored from 16 yards to put the Tornadoes up 14-0.
