  • Commodores squash Rebels

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central improved its passing and spiking accuracy and beat South Spencer 25-13, 25-4, 25-16 in first-round Class 2A volleyball sectional action Thursday.

    "I know they're not the strongest team in the world, but in most of the games we lost we beat ourselves," said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet.

    "Tonight at least we passed the ball and made some things happen. We passed the ball a lot better and went to the floor and got the ball.

  • Passing woes hurt TC in loss to...

    LEOPOLD - Forest Park did an excellent job receiving serves while Tell City had some problems in that department Thursday.

    The result was a 25-23, 25-15, 25-9 win for Forest Park in the first round of the Class 2A volleyball sectional.

    "We knew to compete with them we had to block and we had to pass," said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes. "We got the blocking part down. We probably had our best blocking game we've had all year. We got hands on every one of their hits.

  • Tell City's defense lacking...

    TELL CITY - Tell City's football team compiled the sort of statistics Friday that one might expect would give the Marksmen their first win.

    They had two 160-yard rushers and gained 14 first downs as they scored a season-high 27 points.

    But their defense continued to struggle as they lost to North Knox 49-27 in Class 2A first-round sectional action.

    The Marksmen finished the season 0-10, their first winless season ever, as they gave up an average of 43.8 points per game. That ranked 312th among 318 teams in the state.

  • PC records 7th shutout in win...

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central held Wood Memorial to 54 total yards as the Commodores romped 45-0 in the first round of the Class A football sectional Friday.

    Perry Central also rolled up 332 yards of total offense.

    Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer said, "Our intensity off the ball was good. The last time we played them we let the (Trojan) defense come off blocks and make plays."

    The Commodores scored on seven of their first eight possessions.

  • Senators blank PC

    CAMPBELLSBURG - Perry Central never got its offense going in a 36-0 seventh grade football loss to West Washington Tuesday.

    "We couldn't get anything started," said Perry Central Coach Neal Stahly. "We just didn't play very well."

    Ethan Emmons recovered a fumble on defense but "we had some trouble tackling," said Stahly.

    He said that problem "carried over to the eighth grade game," where the Commodores lost 46-0.

  • Archers split with Chargers

    PETERSBURG - Brennan Malone scored on a 75-yard kickoff return in the final two minutes to give Tell City a 12-6 seventh grade football win over Pike Central Monday.

    "We got some decent blocks on the right side and he found a seam," said Tell City Coach Kelly Malone.

    Pike Central had tied the game 6-6 on a touchdown just before Malone's kickoff return.

    Tell City scored the game's first touchdown on a 10-yard pass from Malone to Austin Paulin.

    On defense for the Archers Logan Smithson and Drew Mowery each intercepted a pass and C.J. Rowe recovered a fumble.

  • P C shuts out Paoli

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central stopped Paoli's option attack and shut out the Senators 20-0 in reserve football Monday.

    "They probably only had two or three first downs all night," said Perry Central Coach Ron Gibson. "They really couldn't move the ball on the ground.

    "I think the JV kids learned a lot Friday night, watching how we took away their option (in the varsity matchup)."

    Perry Central scored one touchdown in each of the first three quarters.

  • North Knox to visit Marksmen

    TELL CITY - Tell City will try to stop North Knox's running game when the two meet in a Class 2A football sectional first-round game Friday at 7 p.m.

    Tell City assistant coach Matt Goffinet said Tuesday that Derek Chambers, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound sophomore running back, is the 7-2 Warriors' top runner.

    "He's very, very quick," said Goffinet. "He's able to make cuts and he's a very good downfield runner."

    Chambers became the team's main running back after gaining 254 yards on just 22 carries last year as a freshman.

  • P C, Trojans facing rematch

    LEOPOLD - Wood Memorial has tweaked its football offense since playing Perry Central Sept. 26, but Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer hopes for the same result when they meet in a sectional game Friday at 7 p.m.

    The Commodores shut out Wood Memorial 31-0 in the regular-season meeting, holding the Trojans to 38 yards rushing on 37 attempts.

    The 2-7 Trojans have since gone to a more wide open passing attack.

    "Against North Daviess (Oct. 3) they probably threw 80 percent of the time," Spencer said Monday. "They were in several wide formations," including a lot of shotgun.

  • Perry Central boys, girls third...

    MARENGO - Perry Central had four boys and four girls place in the top 20 as it finished third in both races at the IHSAA cross country regional Saturday.

    Three Tell City runners also qualified. Sarah Goffinet placed third and Tiffany Davis 14th in the girls race and Alex Fenn 10th in the boys race.

    Each Tell City team finished sixth in a 10-team race. The top five teams and the top 15 individual runners qualified for the semistate.
