Wilson Central hosts Mt. Juliet tonight in a key District 9AAA football game for both programs. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Wildcat Stadium.

Mt. Juliet enters tonight's contest 3-1 overall (2-0) in the district. The Golden Bears are coming off a 49-21 loss at No. 2-ranked Blackman High last week.

Senior quarterback Nolan Chowbay finished 13-of-21 passing for 219 yards against the Blaze.

Wilson Central stands 1-3 / 1-1 following a wild 49-35 loss to Cleveland. Six turnovers killed any chance the Wildcats had against Cleveland -- despite racking up over 450 yards in total offense.

Coach Brad Dedman's team is looking to break a five-game losing streak against Mt. Juliet.

Wilson Central's last victory in the series came in 2008 by a 39-27 score.

Tonight's contest brings to an end Central's five-game homestand to open the 2014 season. The Wildcats close the season with five straight road games.

FCS hosts Knox Webb
Friendship Christian hosts defending Division II-A state champion Knoxville Webb tonight in a showdown between two of the top small private school football programs in the state. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Pirtle Field.

The Commanders upped their record to 3-0 on the season following last week's impressive 35-0 home win over Trousdale County.

Knox Webb comes in 1-2 on the season, after downing Christian Academy of Knoxville 31-21. The Spartans played up the first two weeks of the season, losing 28-7 at Maryville and 34-7 at Chattanooga Baylor.

"They have a big, strong offensive line, certainly one of the best we'll see this season," said FCS head coach John McNeal. "Our defense has played well so far, but this will be a pretty bug test against Webb."

Ezell-Harding at MJ Christian
Two squads in desperate need of a win will meet tonight as Mt. Juliet Christian Academy entertains Ezell-Harding Academy. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Suey Field on the MJ Christian campus.

MJCA fell to 0-3 on the season with last week's 12-0 homecoming loss to Oakdale. Ezell-Harding dropped to -04 on the season following a 45-26 loss last week to Columbia Academy.

LHS visits Station Camp
Winless Lebanon travels to Sumner County tonight to take on District 9AAA opponent Station Camp. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Live radio coverage begins at 6:30 on WANT FM-98.9 and WAMB FM-99.3. A free live video feed is available at by searching LHS Sports.

The Blue Devils fell to 0-4 on the season following last week's frustrating 21-7 loss at Lincoln County -- a game that found LHS turning the ball over four times -- two of which led directly to Falcon TDs.

Lebanon has dropped three straight games to the Bison, including a 28-22 loss at Tribble Field in 2013. The last Blue Devil victory over Station Camp came in 2009 by a 53-48 score.

Station Camp (1-2) picked up a win last week with a 34-14 decision over Antioch.

Sophomore linebacker Owen Pryor has developed into a tackling machine for the Blue Devils over the first four games of the season.

Senior defensive lineman Julien Crutchfield saw his first action of the season last week after missing the first three games due to a knee injury.

The Bison coached by former Mt. Juliet and Cumberland football standout Shaun Hollinsworth, dropped their first two games of the season -- 36-21 to Mt. Juliet and 26-14 to Beech.

Senior quarterback Kyle Anderton (6-4, 225) runs the offense for Station Camp. His top receiving targets include: seniors Josh Gilley and Jayce Alford along with junior Kage Hancock.

Watertown travels to RBS
Watertown's Purple Tigers are on the road tonight in search of their first win of the season as they play at Dsitrict 8A rival Red Boiling Springs.

Coach Gavin Webster's team slid to 0-4 on the season with a 47-7 loss at Oneida last week. Bouyed last week by the return of sophomore quarterback Seth Price (10-of-18 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown), Watertown is likely without the services of defensive tackle Jesse Cooper and offensive lineman Rusty Staats due to injury.

RBS (2-2, 0-1) is coming off a 14-13 win over Cannon County last week.
