Jets lose 47-6 to District 6AAA foe Cookeville

CROSSVILLE — What a difference a week makes for the CCHS Jet football team. After a resounding 27-13 win at Sweewater Oct. 11, Coach Ted McCaslin's squad sufffered a 47-6 District 6AAA loss to the Cookeville Cavaliers Oct. 18.

"We reverted back to our habits," said McCaslin. "We played aggressively in the second half. We will be going back to the drawing board on Monday."

The Jets got off to a good start in the first quarter, forcing a fumble on the Cavaliers' first possession, which was recovered by A.J. Dick.

A penalty opened the possession, forcing CCHS to go three and out, giving the ball right back to the Cavaliers at the Cookeville 47 after a short punt by Dorian Holt.

Three plays later, Jacob Edgington passed 58 yards to Chase Mabey for a TD with 7:14 left in the quarter. The PAT was no good.

Another three and out by the Jets gave the ball to the Cavaliers at the Cavalier 48-yard line. Four plays later, Cameron Germenis scored from six yards out, set up by a 24-pass from Edgington to Mabey. The two-point conversion failed with the Cavs leading 12-0 with 5:16 left in the quarter.

The Jets offense finished the quarter with 17 yards rushing on six carries and completed three of six passes for 13 yards with one first down, while Cookeville rushed for 76 yards on 10 attempts and was six for six passing for 131 yards.

Dick and Chace Marshall recovered one fumble apiece for the Jets, while Seth Randal, Tyler Norris, Daniel Richards, Kenny Brewer, Tyler Cantrell and Kobe Cox were the leading tacklers.

The second quarter belonged to the Cavaliers, as they scored 28 points to take a 40-0 lead at the break.

The Cavaliers scored on their first possession of the second quarter, as Gernenis raced 46 yards to cap a four-play, 68-yard drive for a 18-0 lead. The PAT was good making the score 19-0.

CCHS  took over at their 35 after the kickoff went out of bounds; however, the Jets would be stopped on downs at the Cookeville 39. Jordan Buckner completed two of three passes for 33 yards.

Three plays later, Edidgington passed 46 yards to Mabey for a TD. The PAT made it 26-0.

After holding the Jets to three plays and out, the Cavaliers drove 49 yards in three plays for a 33-0 lead on a 15-yard run by Germenis with 5:28 left in the half. The PAT was good.

Another three plays and out by the Jets gave the Cavaliers the ball at the Cookeville 42. Seven plays later, Ty Hammons raced 28  yards for another TD with 54.6 seconds left in the half. The PAT made it 40-0.

CCHS rushed for 17 yards on seven carries in the second quarter and completed four of 12 passes for 42 yards with two first downs, while Cookeville had 148 rushing on 11 carries and 93 yards passing on three of six passes.

Leading tacklers for the Jets were Cantrell, Brewer, Zach Smith, Marshall, Randall, Nathan Blaylock, Dylan Oakes and Michale Miller.

The TSSAA mercy rule kicked in in the second half.

The Jets rushed for four yards on two carries and completed five of seven passes for 36 yards, while the Jet defense held the Cavs to minus three yards rushing on six carries.

Leading the Jet defense were Smith, Dick, Marshall, Zakk King, David Scavo and Cox, who had a fumble recovery.

Cookeville converted an interception by Scott Newman into their final score, a 29-yard run by Phillip Vinson which capped a two-play drive with 2:50 left in the game. The PAT made it 47-0.

The Jets averted the shutout, as Buckner passed 81 yards to Colton Dykes for a TD; however, Gene Cravens' PAT was no good.

The Cavaliers returned the ensuing kick 31 yards and ran three plays to kill the clock to record the 47-6 win.

Next up for the Jets is their homecoing game with Grundy County this Friday at 7 p .m.  Grundy County (3-5, 2-2) defeated Bledsoe County 56-26 last Friday.

Homecoming activites continue all week, including dress up days — Camo day (Monday), Game Day (Tuesday), Hawaiian day (Wednesday), Pirates Day (Thursday) and Jet Pride Day (Friday).

The Hall of Fame reception to honor inductee Tonya  Hinch will be at 4 p..m.
