TELL CITY—Perry Central rushed for 265 yards on 39 carries and beat Tell City 24-14 in JV football Monday.
“Our line fired off the ball real well and stayed with their blocks,” said Perry Central Coach Nathan Toothman.
That gave running room to Max Tribbe, who gained 130 yards on nine carries, and Jacob Braun, who gained 43 yards on 15 carries. They each scored a touchdown.
Lane Lynch threw a 7-yard pass to Josh Taylor for the Commodores’ other touchdown.
OAKLAND CITY—Strong defense kept Tell City in the game, but again the Marksmen couldn’t score in a 1-0 boys soccer loss to Wood Memorial Tuesday.
“We played very well,” said Tell City Coach Austin Fischer. “We just couldn’t find anyone who could score.
“We got a few good shots. The second half we loaded up on offense but we still couldn’t score.”
It was the sixth game in a row the Marksmen have been shut out.
RAMSEY—McKenzie Hayes made 24 kills and Charissa Lahee had 40 assists as Tell City went 2-0 in North Harrison’s three-team volleyball tourney Saturday.
