Here’s a look at how Columbia-area high school football teams performed in Week 7.
Page 42, Colombia 35
Down 21 at halftime, Columbia rallied to tie the score at 35 with just over five minutes to go.
Page (7-0, 3-0 6-5A) responded to Columbia’s late response with one of their own as Ethan Cunningham went wild for a 37-yard touchdown run with 1:25 remaining.
Columbia (4-3, 2-1) had the opportunity to reply on the drive that followed but the Patriots intercepted a pass from Luke Uselton to seal the victory.
Summertown 19, Lorette 0
The Pegasus Cup trophy went to the Eagles thanks to senior quarterback Colton Shaffer.
Shaffer ran for 76 yards, had 113 yards and scored two rushing touchdowns as Summertown (4-2, 2-1 5-2A) solidified their playoff chances while Loretto (2-4, 0- 2) fell to last place in the region.
Columbia Academy 27, MJCA 21
Connor Rosson led the Bulldogs to their first win of the season with 191 yards and three touchdowns.
Rosson led the Columbia Academy (1-5, 1-1 DII-A Middle) on a goal practice mid-fourth quarter as he punched Samuel Nowotny for an 11-yard touchdown. The MJCA (2-4, 0-2) returned the ball on his next possession by throwing an interception.
Nolensville 45, Spring Hill 0
A 28-point second quarter by Nolensville doomed Spring Hill as they trailed by 38 at halftime.
Coby Walton went 11 for 15 with 240 yards and three touchdowns for the Knights (2-5, 2-1 6-5A). Spring Hill (0-6, 0-2) struggled to get anything on offense as he returned the ball twice and completed 120 total yards.
Richland 42, Mt. Pleasant 0
Defense and a solid rushing offense was the right formula for the Raiders as they posted their second straight shutout.
Richland (3-3, 1-2 5-2A) notched the Tigers on 200 rushing yards led by Sam Edwards on 88 yards and two touchdowns. Mt. Pleasant (2-4, 1-2) had 108 offensive yards and returned the ball twice.
Summit 49, Ravenwood 28
Ravenwood (5-2, 2-1 7-6A) had no response for Destin Wade on the field as the Kentucky lead ran for 264 yards and three touchdowns in 23 carries for Summit (7-0, 3-0).
Summit’s defense also proved to be important as he held Ravenwood quarterback Chris Parson 124 yards in the air.
Brentwood 20, Independence 17
A scoreless fourth quarter for both teams doomed Independence (3-4, 2-1 7-6A) as it couldn’t rally to beat the Bruins (3-4, 1-2).
Davis White paced Brentwood’s offense with 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the air while Scott Collins added 159 yards and another rushing touchdown. Independent quarterback Joe Cummings threw for over 200 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw a costly interception midway through the fourth quarter.
