OC routs another
in soccer action
Obion Central recorded its second shutout of the week with a lopsided 13-0 thumping of homestanding Ripley in girls’ prep soccer Thursday.
The Lady Rebels have outscored their first three foes 28-2 en route to a 3-0 start.
Ripley was no match for OC on Thursday, never attempting a shot on Central goalie Taylor Baker. The Lady Rebels had 23 shots.
Brooke Jennings found the goal four times for the victors, while Oliva Turner recorded a hat trick. Bailey Boucher scored twice, while Whittney Lee, Erin Chappel, Kelsey Beeler and Kelsey Gibson all got in on the fun with goals.
Gibson and Lee added a couple of assists each, while Katie Speed also aided in an OC score.
Obion Central plays at Dyer County on Tuesday.
Red Devil ‘B-team’
posts 2nd place
South Fulton’s golf team used its ‘second-tier’ players from a deep roster to place second in a three-way match with Westview and Ripley at the Fulton Country Club Thursday.
The Red Devils were six shots behind Westview (175-181), but far ahead of Ripley (219).
With their top four players sitting out the match to allow for other players to get seasoning, Joshua Mayo shot a 41 for SF. Kyle Cranford finished with a 44, while both David Proctor and Ryan Harper each shot 48.
South Fulton will use that same roster on Tuesday to play Ripley on the Tigers’ Rolling Hills home course.

UT pushes back
KNOXVILLE (AP) — Anyone with spare Tennessee football and basketball tickets won’t be able to sell them in front of Neyland Stadium and Thompson-Boling Arena in the hours leading up to the games.
The university instituted a policy Thursday banning commercial solicitations in front of Neyland Stadium and Thompson-Boling Arena, from four hours before the start of an event up until its conclusion. The solicitation ban includes the resale of tickets to games, concerts and other campus events.
For football games, the ban will exist in the stadium’s Gate 21 Plaza and along the east side of Phillip Fulmer Way from Middle Way Drive to Gate 10. For basketball games, the prohibition will be in effect along Phillip Fulmer way from Tee Martin Drive to Lake Loudoun Boulevard in front of the arena.
