Messenger Sports Briefs for September 22
Briefly

General rally short
against Three Oaks

Lake Road’s second half rally was admirable, but not enough during a 48-28 middle school football loss at Three Oaks on Tuesday.  
The Generals, who trailed 30-6 at halftime, outscored the Dyer Countians 22-18 in the second half.
LR quarterback Blake Berner finished 5-for-7 with 99 passing yards. The Lake Road signal-caller connected with Tyler Mosley on throws of 32 and 14 yards for touchdowns.
Berner also found Juan Morales for a 17-yard TD.
Lake Road’s only first-half score was a one-yard dive by Brett Jackson.
The Generals’ leading rusher was Garrett Riley, who finished with 94 yards on 11 carries.
Lake Road (1-5) returns to action on Thursday at home against Fulton City. All eight-graders on the LR football team are to be honored at the game.

Tab considered
for Titans’ honor

The Tennessee Titans announced Monday that Coalfield head coach Keith Henry has been named the team’s High School Coach of the Week for week four.
Coalfield defeated local rival Oliver Springs 20-0, a huge turnaround from their 48-2 loss to the same school last season.
Henry’s starting lineup includes two freshmen and an eighth grader on the offensive line, a unit that enjoyed success against Oliver Springs.   
Through the Titans Foundation, team owner K.S. “Bud” Adams Jr. will make a $1,000 contribution to the Coalfield High School football program in Coach Henry’s honor.
Also receiving strong consideration in this week’s poll was Tab Vowell of Jackson North Side. Vowell was not present for this week’s game due to his father’s death but his game plan pointed his team in the right direction and to a 51-21 win over previously-undefeated Brighton, a top 10 Class 6A team. Powell’s Matt Lowe and Oakland’s Thomas McDaniel also received consideration for this week’s award.
