Sycamore Falls to Greenbrier in Season Opener


Football returned to Cheatham County on August 21 when the Sycamore War Eagles hosted the Greenbrier Bobcats.

The first quarter found both teams trying unsuccessfully to gain a strong foothold.

When the teams finally settled down, the War Eagles completed a short field goal for a three-point lead. However, the visiting Cats had no intentions of giving up.

Before the teams retired for halftime, the visitors recovered a fumble in the Sycamore end zone for two, and with 6 minutes remaining, scored again. The point after was blocked, and the first half ended with the visitors holding a 15-3 lead.

The third quarter continued much like the first two--- as a defensive battle for both teams. But near the end of the quarter, the Bobcats scored again on a 27 yard pass. The extra point was blocked, but the Bobcats then settled in with a 21-3 lead.

As the final quarter progressed, the teams continued to battle up and down the field with little success.

Then, midway through the quarter, Grady McPherson connected with Houston Hudspeth for a 24-yard reception to give the home team a score, but the extra point failed.

When the final horn sounded, the visitors were able to return home with a 21-9 victory.
