Cyclones fall on road

Carter County Sports

Elizabethton had an upset on the mind Friday night. However, the Cyclones came up just short.

Elizabethton saw their season come to a close with a 38-21 loss to undefeated Anderson County in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs.

The Cyclones had to recover from a slow start on the road.

Elizabethton saw the Mavs jump out to a 14-0 lead with 9:04 left to play in the second. The Cyclones, however, got the offensive attack moving later in the quarter and Corey Russell capped off a drive with a two-yard run as EHS pulled back within seven.

Anderson County added a field goal with seven-seconds left until halftime to take a 17-7 lead into the locker room at half.

The Mavs opened the second half picking up where they left off with back-to-back touchdowns to take a 31-7 lead with 6:39 left to play in the third. Russell got back in the end zone from a yard out as EHS pulled back to 31-13 at the end of the third.

Russell added his third touchdown of the night with 4:29 to play in the game as he broke free for a 10-yard touchdown.

The junior running back Russell had 74 yards on 23 carries while totaling 191 all-purpose yards. Carter Everett went 19-of-37 passing for 182 yards. Ryan Wetzel added 111 receiving yards on eight catches.

The Cyclones finish a stellar 2017 season with a 9-3 record.
