KNOXVILLE — CAK turned two early turnovers into two early touchdowns here Friday, grabbing a momentum that it would not relinquish in a 47-7 defeat of Scott.

In their first loss of the season, the Highlanders saw the two-time defending state champions roll up 339 passing yards. Defensively, the Warriors kept Scott's receivers bottled up downfield and sacked quarterback Jake Phillips six times.

Scott (4-1) trailed CAK (2-3) by a count of 37-0 at halftime before getting back on track in the second half. Still, the Warriors were able to expand the lead to 47-0 before Phillips and Austin Stephens hooked up on a 32-yard touchdown pass late in the game.
