MARYVILLE (WVLT) -- The Maryville Red Rebels fought their way to yet another league title Friday, ousting Farragut 24-17 to clinch the District 4-AAA championship and earn an automatic playoff berth.

But it wasn't easy for George Quarles' team. A touchdown run by Cody Rule late in the second quarter evened the score, 10-10, heading into the break.

But a special play on special teams put Maryville ahead for good. Preston Burnett fielded a punt and streaked down the sideline for a long touchdown return to put the Rebels ahead 17-10. A Jacob West touchdown dive put Maryville ahead by two scores.

Farragut scored a late touchdown, but failed to recover an onside kick. Maryville ran out the clock to clinch the district championship.
