Polk scored on six of its eight possessions en-route to a 54-14 win at Chattanooga Christian School Friday night. The Polk defense also did its job holding the Charger offense to three and kick on four of its first six possessions and took a 41-6 lead into their white tent locker room at half time. Polk scored on their first two possessions of the second half and CCS added another touchdown in the fourth quarter for the final 54-14 score.

Carter Flowers scored three of the Polk TDs and Chris Wimberley, Duncan Coffey, Will Richmond, Isaac Smith, and Josh Sillas each added a touchdown. Aaron Caldwell and Flowers each scored a 2-point conversion and Flowers was successful on two PAT kicks in four attempts for the Wildcats.

Coffey completed a pass to Marcus Green for a 25-yard gain on Polk’s first offensive possession of the evening and after three running plays fired a 21-yard pass to Flowers for Polk’s first score. Flowers then passed to Caldwell on a fake kick for the two-point conversion, 8-0 with 10:09 left in the first quarter. CCS then ran three plays that netted five yards and punted to the Polk 43. Wimberley scored on a 21-yard reverse and the PAT attempt was wide to up the score to 14-0.

On CCS’ second possession Caldwell intercepted a pass giving Polk possession on their 41-yard line. The CCS defense held and the Polk punt was downed at the Charger 22. Polk held again and took over the ball at their 43. After a short gain on a run and an incomplete pass Coffey and Flowers hooked up on a 55-yard pass and run TD. Flowers split the uprights on the PAT and Polk led 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Polk scored on the first offensive series of the second quarter starting at their own 30. Zach Miller moved the ball to the Charger 27 on two handoffs from Josh Sillas and Carter Flowers added eight yards on a pop up the middle to put the ball at the CCS 19. Coffey then took a handoff from Sillas and circled right end for Polk’s 4th TD of the game. The PAT attempt was no good and Polk led 27-0.

After an exchange of possessions the ‘Cats took over at their own 41 with 4:06 left in the half. Polk moved the ball to the Charger 17 in six plays with Ryan Rowland gaining 20 of the yards on two carries. Sillas then scored on a keeper around right end.  Brown was good on the PAT kick to up Polk’s lead to 34-0.

CCS returned the ensuing kickoff from their ten to the Polk 5 and scored with 0:51.5 left in the half to cut the margin to 34-6. Wimberley returned the kickoff 29 yards to give Polk the ball at their 45. Coffey picked up 18 yards on a screen pass from Sillas and Flowers covered the last 27 yards to the end zone on a pass from Coffey. Flowers converted the PAT and Polk led 41-6 as the half ended.

CCS had the first offensive opportunity to start the second half but Wimberley intercepted a pass and gave the Wildcats the ball at the Chargers’ 40. Will Richmond pushed the ball across the goal line from the two, culminating an 8-play possession, the PAT was good and Polk led 48-6. CCS scored their final points of the game on their next possession, added a 2-point conversion, and the 3rd quarter with the score 48-14.

On Polk’s first offensive series of the 4th quarter they moved the ball 80 yards in eight plays and scored the final TD on a quarterback sneak by Isaac Smith. Big plays in the series were a 44-yard gain by Rowland and a 17-yard pick-up by Smith.

Zach Miller rushed for 103 yards on 12 carries to lead the Polk ground game. Ryan Rowland with 64 yards in six carries and Josh Sillas with 39 yards on 3 carries were big in Polk’s total of 369 yards ground game. Polk also picked up 157 yards in the air with Coffey completing 6 passes for 130 yards. Caldwell, Wimberley, and Rowland each had interceptions in thwarting the CCS air game.

“This was a good game for us because we got some good looks at a lot of players” said Coach Derrick Davis. “We’re still looking for players to fill some slots and you always have to be able for someone to step in in case of an injury. This game helped us to evaluate more players and provided some valuable PT for the younger players. We have unbeaten Sweetwater next week and Walker Valley the following game and we needed to get more looks at more players” he concluded.
