Week #4 gave us a much clearer picture heading into the final weekend of the regular season of how Championship Saturday is shaping up. The ACT took some players away but the battles still loomed large as Knoxville Catholic saw the best that East Tennessee has to offer.
Team Watts 57
Team Smith 51
Darius Filer (Fulton) notched a game high 16 markers as Team Watts won their second game in a row defeating Team Smith 57-51 in Rocky Top Fall League action this past Saturday at newly restored KnoxvilleCatholicHigh School.
Filer lead a foursome of double digits dawgs including Brady Nease (Union County) and Javien Johnson (Oak Ridge) with 12 each and Chase Hamilton (Fulton) added 10 in the win.
Luke Sheppard (Grace Christian) picked up the scoring slack for Team Smith as he dropped 15 in the narrow loss. Austin Glasgow (Hardin Valley) and Deonta Bizzle-Brown (Hardin Valley) chipped in with 10 point each.
Team Watts puts their two game win streak on the line against fellow Bradshaw Division foe Team Jackson this coming Saturday at SeymourHigh School.
Team Smith tangles with Bradshaw Division leader Team Burns in the late game.
Team Matthews 70
Team Driscoll 62
Justin Simmons (Stone Memorial) had his best game to date notching 24 points as Team Matthews takes sole possession of first place in the Lofton Division with a 70-62 battle against Team Driscoll.
Simmons took the top spot but was assisted in the scoring column by Jacob Cawood (Midway) with 15 and Tyler Yoder (Stone Memorial) with 10.
The win offset an outstanding dual performance from Cameron Turner (Farragut) and Dean Miniard (Knoxville Webb). The duo scored 20 and 19 respectively for Team Driscoll and had them in the game till the bitter end.
Team Matthews puts its gaudy 4-0 record up this Saturday at Seymour against Team Lee while Team Driscoll tangles with Team Garman in the regular season finale.

Team Sharpe 52
Logan Cox (Bradley Central) and Levi Woods (Meigs County) rocked 19 and 18 respectively as Team Burns moved to 3-1 with a 75-52 victory over Team Sharpe.
Hot from the outside, Team Burns connected on 10 three's in the contest. Kendrick Thompson (Cleveland) finished with 14 markers while Alex Watkins (Tyner Academy) dropped a cool dozen in the win.
Team Sharpe was led by Gunnar Gibson (Seymour) and Thomas Mackey (Gatlinburg-Pittman) with 12 each. Danny Bates (Jefferson County) pitched in with 11 and Cody Underwood (Sevier County) continued his consistent play with 10 points.

Team Jackson 59
Team Coffin moved their season mark to 3-1 behind dual 13 point efforts from Zeke Clark (Elizabethton) and Dylan Reppart (Daniel Boone) and a 71-59 victory over Team Jackson.

Dustin Day (David Crockett) added 12 while Chase Phillips (Johnson County) pitched in 10 in the victory.
Cody Cummings (South Doyle) and Jordan Bowden (Carter) scored 13 and 11 respectively for Team Jackson, who drops to 2-2.
