Northeast scored early and often in route to a rout–64-6 over West Creek on Friday. The win runs Northeast’s record to 6-0, and West Creek fell to 1-5.
But a cloud of controversy loomed over the game, and potentially over Northeast’s first five games, as the Clarksville-Montgomery County school district revealed in a press release late Friday afternoon that the program was under investigation by the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association for the alleged use of an ineligible player. The player in question ironically was a transfer from West Creek.
