Elizabethton unable to keep pace with CAK

Carter County Sports

The Cyclones had an upset on the mind. However, Christian Academy of Knoxville (CAK) had another idea.

Elizabethton was unable to keep pace with the high-powered offensive attack of the Warriors as they fell 48-19 in the second round of the Class 3A playoffs. The loss ends Elizabethton’s season with a 10-2 record.

On the opening drive of the game, Elizabethton nearly jumped out early, but was forced to punt. After the Warriors struck with a Cole Smith touchdown, a Cyclone fumble set up CAK to take a 13-0 lead with a Smith touchdown pass to Phillip Nichols.

Elizabethton found some offensive rhythm on the next drive as Jeremiah Turner broke free for a lengthy run, and Hunter Tyree snuck into the end zone to put the Cyclones on the board. However, the Warriors answered quickly as Elizabethton trailed 27-6 at the half.

CAK extended the advantage to 48-6 after three quarters of play.

Turner added a score for Elizabethton with a 17-yard touchdown run. The Cyclones capped the scoring when Drew Bowers caught a Tyree pass for a four-yard score.

Tyree finished the game 12-of-22 with 123 yards. On the ground, Turner recorded 14 carries for 134 yards.

For CAK, Smith had a stellar game as he went 16-of-24 for 277 yards and added nearly 80 yards no the ground.
