The Nolensville Knights are a game away from heading to Cookeville. 

The team walloped DeKalb County 42-6 Friday night at home en route to a trip to Elizabethton High School for the 4A semifinals. 

It's the first time in the school's brief history they've made it this far and lives up to the promise they showed in their 8-0 run earlier this season. They have dominated the playoffs this November. 

A key contributor to the team's win Friday night was running back Ryan Pistulka, who rushed for three touchdowns and 167 yards on 14 carries. 

He averaged 12 yards a carry in the contest, per the Home Page's Joel Delgado

The Knights will need Pistulka to continue his strong play when they go on the road Friday night to face an undefeated Elizabethton. 

His Friday night explosion is why he's our City Cafe Player of the Week.
