Varsity All Access | Week 8 resullts
Farragut looks to get season back on track against Oak Ridge
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Playoff spots are still up for grabs over the regular season’s final weeks. Here are five key games happening on Friday night that you’ll see on WVLT’s Varsity All Access report.
GAME OF THE WEEK | FARRAGUT at OAK RIDGE (3-35 FINAL)
After a 2-0 start to the season, Farragut’s gauntlet of a schedule has caught up to the Admirals. The team’s playoff hopes are on life support as they travel to Oak Ridge to battle the Wildcats.
Oak Ridge has been as good as anyone in the area, carrying a 5-1 record into tomorrow’s game with the Admirals. Every game the Wildcats have played in this season has been decided by at least 11 points.
WEST at ANDERSON COUNTY (8-7 FINAL)
After suffering its first loss of the season to Alcoa, an injury-plagued West squad will travel to red-hot Anderson County on Friday.
The Rebels were without star running back Marshaun Bowers a week ago, who will be critical to the team’s quest for a second straight state title.
Anderson County has won four straight after an 0-3 start, averaging 44.5 points per game in their four victories.
CARTER at GIBBS (21-34 FINAL)
If you’re a team having a solid season, you don’t want to see Carter on your schedule. The Green Hornets have already ended perfect seasons for Gatlinburg-Pittman and Northview Academy this year and are looking to hand Gibbs only its second loss of the season this Friday.
The Eagles have won four games in a row and can all but eliminate Carter from region title contention with a victory. The Eagles have allowed only 13 points through two league games.
CENTRAL at POWELL (7-41 FINAL)
After a slow start to the year, Powell has emerged as a legitimate state title contender thanks to a stout defense and a ground game that’s among Tennessee’s best.
Central has an opportunity to turn a lackluster year around with an upset win against the Panthers on the road. Central’s playoff hopes will take a serious dive if the Bobcats cannot pull off the upset on Friday.
SEYMOUR at FULTON (7-38 FINAL)
Despite these two teams coming in with just one win between them, there are serious postseason implications on the line when Seymour travels to Fulton on Friday.
After last week’s 44-36 win over South Doyle, the Falcons can put themselves in the driver’s seat to make the postseason. With a win, Fulton’s magic number to reach the playoffs would be one. Seymour can insert themselves into the playoff picture if they pick up their first win of the year on Friday.
