I was a heck of a game on a rainy night in Cookeville. Both defenses came to play. In the first half, Oakland scored on a Patterson TD and then a safety. The score remained 9-0 until Whitehaven scored at the 6:46 mark of the 4th quarter. with the score 9-6. Then a 60 yard run, set up a 2 yard TD run and Whitehaven took a 12-9 lead.
2 TDs in 4:45 , 2-100 yard rushers, 2 state Championships since 2012. Whitehaven ends the season undefeated. Oakland ends with the first loss of their season and state runner-up.
