The Trousdale County Yellow Jackets were looking for another win and some revenge in the process last Friday when they hosted the Gordonsville Tigers.
The Jackets earned both with a 42-0 victory at John Kerr Field.
Still somewhat smarting from a 9-0 loss at Gordonsville last year, the Yellow Jackets scored 14 points in each of the final three quarters to get the job done.
Trousdale County has now won 24 of its last 26 meetings with Gordonsville and owns a 53-14-2 advantage in the series.
“Very proud of our players’ effort and preparation this past week,” said Trousdale coach Brad Waggoner. “I knew after practice on Wednesday that our players were ready.”
The Yellow Jackets rolled up 393 yards of total offense, 247 on the ground and 146 in the air, while holding the Tigers to 202 yards.
Junior quarterback Keyvont Baines went over the 1000-yard rushing mark for the second game in a row with six carries for 104 yards and a touchdown, during which he leapt over a Gordonsville defender. Baines also completed seven of 15 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns, both to senior Trace McGuire.
McGuire had the best game of his career, totaling five catches for 112 yards and touchdowns of 12 and 56 yards.
The Yellow Jackets also scored their first special-teams touchdown of the season as senior Braison Raney picked up the second-half kickoff at his own 42-yard line and raced 58 yards for his first score of the season.
Freshman kicker Heath Chasse also got in on the scoring, hitting the last two extra-point attempts for the Jackets.
Sophomore Tarvaris Claiborne led the Trousdale defense with 14 tackles, including one for loss. Junior defensive end Jake Gregory had 11½ tackles, two for loss, and sophomore Ben Chumley grabbed an interception.
“It was a great team win and I was very proud of our defense getting a shutout,” Waggoner said.
The Jackets also shut out the Tigers on the Creekbank in 2015, winning that game 35-0.
Trousdale County improved to 3-1 on the season with the win, while Gordonsville fell to 1-3.
