AC, OR summaries; Week 3 HSFB scores, Week 4 schedules

Fulton 42 Anderson County 21: The Mavericks led the 3rd-ranked defending state champion Falcons 14-7 at halftime but could not stem the inevitable turning of the tide in the second half as their upset bid fell short at home.

Stanton Martin threw a touchdown passes to Caleb Bethel and Thyshaud Thrasher and the AC defense forced three interceptions of Fulton quarterbacks, but had no answers in the fourth quarter, when Fulton scored 28 points to rally and pull away. AC falls to 0-3, 0-1 with the loss.

Oak Ridge 30 Farragut 25: Oak Ridge running back Jordan Graham ran for 120 of his 132 yards on the ground in the fourth quarter, including a 79-yard scamper for the score that proved to be decisive as the Wildcats rallied to beat Farragut in a huge Region 3-5A game.

Farragut led 16-10 at halftime but Oak Ridge scored the next 17 points in the game to open the second half. QB Johnny Stewart tossed Oak Ridge touchdown passes to Tee Higgins and Caleb Martin and the Wildcats also got three field goals from Carson McGhee.
