GALLATIN - Taking on undefeated Wilson Central on Friday night was going to be a huge challenge for the Gallatin Lady Wave basketball team.

Though the Gallatin Green Wave will be at home throughout the playoffs, nothing can take away what Jordan Ponchez Mason did on the field in 2015.

HENDERSONVILLE -- The Gallatin Lady Wave soccer season came to a close Saturday afternoon at the hands of cross-town rival Station Camp in a District 9-AAA tournament quarterfinal match.
The Lady Bison posted two goals in the first half and held on for the win.
Leading in to Friday night's game, the forecast called for moderate showers with a slight chance of thunderstorms.
For Hendersonville, 7-1 overall (4-1 6-5A), it served as an ordinary Friday night.
The Gallatin Lady Wave soccer team hadn't allowed a goal throughout the postseason. On Monday afternoon, during the middle school championship, that trend continued. While their Ellis Lady Cougar counterparts had seven shots on goal throughout the match, none were allowed to find the back of the net by the Green Wave defense.
Beech took an early lead against Gallatin and added a couple of goals in the second half en route to a 3-1 win in last week's District 9-AAA soccer contest.
The Beech victory came after an 8-0 loss to Hendersonville just two days earlier. Buccaneers head coach Tim Guinn said it was nice to see his girls rebound after such a lopsided loss.
If the rivalry game Friday night between Gallatin and Hendersonville were a trial by jury case, the Commandos could probably play the role of judge, jury and executioner and the Green Wave could very well be looking at death row.
HENDERSONVILLE -- Turnovers are generally a good measuring stick of Friday night football games. In most cases, the team that protects the football comes away the victor.
Last Friday night was no different.
HENDERSONVILLE--Turnovers are generally a good measuring stick of Friday night football games. In most cases, the team that protects the football comes away the victor.
Gallatin placed a barrage of shots on goal in the final ten minutes of play during last week's District 9-AAA match with Lebanon in attempt to tie the match at two goals apiece.

As Beech and Gallatin prepare to meet in a pivotal Region 6-5A game Friday night, it seems as though they are two teams headed down completely different paths.
Beech has won two of their last three contests. After a loss to Hendersonville, (30-16), the Buccaneers picked up wins over Cane Ridge and Springfield in the last two weeks.
A constant rain fell during the first half of the Region 6-5A rivalry game between Station Camp and Gallatin Friday night. As the rain subsided, so did the Gallatin offense.
After posting 19 points and more than 100 yards on the ground in the first half, Gallatin was limited to just 26 in the second half. Station Camp, on the other hand, had nearly 200 on the ground throughout the third and fourth quarters.
On Saturday, Sept. 19, the Gallatin High School varsity cheer team will host a cheerleading clinic for kindergarten through eighth grade students.

GALLATIN -- Tuesday night marked the long-awaited meeting between cross-town rivals Shafer and Rucker Stewart middle schools. While in a few short months the eighth grade members of each team will unite to become the freshmen Green Wave, the contest Tuesday night was for bragging rights.

GALLATIN -- After picking up a road win over Ellis last week, 2-1, the Gallatin Lady Wave middle school soccer team downed Knox Doss at home Tuesday afternoon, 4-0.
GALLATIN -- It may have been a rivalry game but there was very little that the lady Green Wave could do to stop their Station Camp counterparts last week. The Lady Bison netters rolled in three games to claim both the rivalry and district win, 25-13, 25-8 and 25-8.
There seems to be a real disdain for Henry County among the Gallatin faithful. As long as each school has been in existence, their meetings have always been stoked by vengeance or fueled by hate.
With the mercy rule clock in effect at the start of the second half, Gallatin rolled to a 54-6 final over Hunters Lane in their Region 6-5A opener.
Jordan Mason, who did not see a single snap on offense in the second half, finished as the Wave's leading rusher with 114 yards on 10 carries. With four touchdowns on the night, Mason pushes his season total to 11 on the ground and 12 overall.

Though Portland claimed the match in straight games, Monday's meeting served as one of the most competitive Panthers versus Green Wave matches in the past six seasons.
The Lady Panthers downed Gallatin, 25-8, 25-20 and 25-21 to take the win.

GALLATIN -- Parents have a lot of responsibilities. For Johnny and Pam Garrott those responsibilities have involved a ten-year commitment to the Gallatin High School soccer program.
GALLATIN -- Last Friday marked the second meeting of the Gallatin Lady Wave and the Merrol Hyde Lady Hawks.
While Merrol Hyde took the first game earlier in the season, Gallatin got a little revenge with a 1-0 victory last week.
Merrol Hyde could not capitalize on several early opportunities. Lauren Williamson missed right in the first six minutes of play and a header by Abbott Gailmard sailed over the net on a Lady Hawk corner.
The struggle is real for the Hunters Lane Warriors.
Over the course of the last two games, the Warriors have yet to score a single point. In their season opener against Clarksville Northwest, Hunters Lane was blanked 20-0. A week later, it got worse for the Warriors as they fell 39-0 to Hillwood.
Communication is the key factor to the success of any soccer team. The Gallatin Lady Wave had just enough talk on the field to earn a win Thursday afternoon.

It was a career-high in rushing yards for Mason and it was the second highest single game total in school history. Only Amari Robb (some 20 years ago) has rushed for more yards in a game for Gallatin. Mason also accounted for four of Gallatin's five touchdowns in the game.

Gallatin led last Friday night's Halloween senior night contest against Wilson Central for only 1:16. But it was the last 1:16 and that's all that matters.
Gallatin took possession at their 35-yard line trailing the Wildcats 21-16 with 2:31 remaining in the fourth quarter. Back-to-back runs by Dorian Banks of 10 and seven yards moved the Green Wave into Wildcat territory. After an incomplete pass from quarterback Julian Meador, he found fellow senior Dedarius Redding on two consecutive plays. The latter was a 35-yard score that Redding plunked out of the air, darted inside and out-raced the Wilson Central defense to pay dirt. Meador then connected with fullback Dakota Madden in the flat for a successful two-point conversion to give the Green Wave their first lead of the night, 24-21.

Last week, the Blue Devils lost 69-6 to the ninth-ranked Cookeville Cavaliers. Lebanon's only score came on running back Taye Davis's 80-yard kickoff return.
