FNF Roundup (Week 1): Baylor, Boyd and Ooltewah stay unbeaten

Posted: Updated:

Baylor 34, Bradley Central 13
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) --
Baylor's defense forced four turnovers and George Porter rushed for 176 yards and two touchdowns as the Red Raiders overwhelmed Bradley Central 34-13.

Baylor's defense limited the Bears' powerful ground game to just 76 yards and also registered a safety in the third quarter. Senior linebacker Colton Jumper led the charge, finishing with an interception, two sacks and a fumble recovery.

The Red Raiders (2-0) got takeaways on Bradley's first two possessions and converted them into touchdowns to build a 17-0 lead at the half. Rafael Gaglionone added three of his four field goals in the second half to pad the lead.

Bryce Copeland led the Bears (1-1) with 82 yards rushing and 232 yards in the air. He scored both Bradley touchdowns, one in the air and one on the ground, but was running for his life for most of the night.

Bradley running back Logan Fetzner, who rushed for 200-plus yards in last week's season-opener, was limited to minus-10 yards on just four carries.

Boyd-Buchanan 35, East Ridge 0
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) --
Rance Harden rushed for 138 yards and two touchdowns, and the Boyd-Buchanan defense pitched its second-straight shutout in a 35-0 rout of East Ridge in the Bucs' home-opener.

The Pioneers (0-2) mustered just 117 total yards of offense, while Boyd-Buchanan racked up 264 on the ground alone. John Hale helped Harden shoulder the load, adding 63 yards rushing and a score.

Harden also led the Bucs (2-0) with eight tackles, while Hale added an interception.

Ooltewah 31, East Hamilton 28
EAST BRAINERD, Tenn. (WRCB) --
Ooltewah drove 78 yards in the final three minutes to set up Alex Crowe's 23-yard game-winning field goal in a 31-28 rivalry win over host East Hamilton.

The Hurricanes, who came out a bit flat following last week's huge season-opening rout of Signal Mountain, had rallied from an early 21-7 deficit to tie the game at 28-all in the fourth quarter.

T.J. Davis rushed for 130 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown, and Brody Binder completed 8-of-18 passes for 154 yards in the air. Binder hit Andrew Ware for an 84-yard touchdown in the first half, and added a two-yard scoring run in the second.

Logan Jackson, who rushed for 185 yards and five scores last week, piled up 249 yards and two scores on the ground for East Hamilton (1-1). His 47-yard burst tied the game at 28-all near the seven-minute mark of the fourth quarter to set up the Owls' (2-0) late heroics.

Soddy-Daisy 32, Red Bank 27
RED BANK, Tenn. (WRCB) --
Brett Standifer hit C.J. Brown on fourth and goal midway through the fourth quarter to lift Soddy-Daisy to a 32-27 win over rival Red Bank.

C.J. Blue did most of the damage for the Trojans (1-1), rushing for 117 yards and three touchdowns. He also added a score through the air.

Hagan Wilkey completed 12-of-18 attempts and ran for two scores in his debut as the Lions' (0-1) No. 1 quarterback. His lone interception into the arms of Brown came on a tipped ball, but sealed Red Bank's fate with 1:23 left on the clock.

Tyner 33, Signal Mountain 24
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) --
Tyner's "Ram Train" lived up to its name in a season-opening 33-24 win over Signal Mountain.

The Rams (1-0) scored on three plays of 59-yards or more, two runs and a kickoff return, to send the Eagles to a disappointing 0-2.

Eight different Tyner players carried the ball, with five averaging more than five yards per carry. Kalan Hardley started the scoring with a 59-yard jaunt, and Joseph Sturkey capped it with an 80-yard burst.

Hasaan Miller provided the knockout blow with a 94-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter that put the Rams up 26-16 before Sturkey's final tally. Willie Stewart and Lamante Solomon also scored for Tyner.

Reese Phillips did his best to lead the Eagles back, completing 22-of-33 passes for 192 yards. The University of Kentucky verbal commitment also added a 24-yard touchdown run.
