  • Senators to try to stop PC'...

    CAMPBELLSBURG - Perry Central has rushed for over 300 yards in every football game this season, so Coach Mike Spencer expects West Washington to concentrate on stopping the Commodores' running game when they meet Friday at 7 p.m.

    The 2-1 Senators usually play a 4-4 defense. But "against us (in recent years) they've played a 5-3 and even a six- or seven-man line trying to stop the run," said Spencer Monday. "So we think they're going to bring a lot of people."

  • PC boys, girls win Perry-Spencer...

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central had five of the top 10 finishers as it won the Perry-Spencer boys cross country invitational Tuesday.

    Perry Central also won the girls meet, though Tell City freshman Sarah Goffinet was the individual winner.

    Tell City finished third in both meets.

    Heritage Hills star Cody Stein won the boys meet in 17:08.50. Tell City's Alex Fenn was second in 17:29.00.

    But five of the next eight finishers were from Perry Central.

  • PC 8th at Martinsville

    MARTINSVILLE - Perry Central's boys and girls cross country teams could have easily won the smaller schools race at the Artesian Classic Saturday.

    But since the state cross country tourney is not divided into classes, both Commodore teams chose to enter the big schools race to see how they compare with some of the top teams in the southern half of the state.

    Both Perry Central teams finished eighth in the 13-team meet.

  • TC favored vs. Chargers

    TELL CITY - Tell City's football team has struggled to score this year but will be favored to get its first victory Friday, according to the Sagarin computer ratings.

    The Marksmen will host 0-2 Pike Central for a PAC game Friday at 6:30 p.m. Among 318 football teams in the state, Tell City is ranked 240th and Pike Central 269th by Jeff Sagarin.

    Knowing they have a reasonable chance to win could be a morale boost to Tell City's young players.

    Behind the Rebels' stronger and more experienced line, they rushed for 316 yards.

    They used nine different ball carriers . Four of them scored touchdowns and none of them lost yardage until their final play of the game - and that was only because they fumbled.

  • Perry Central runs over Wolfpack

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central rushed for 308 yards and shut out Crawford County 42-0 in PLAC football Friday.

    Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer said, "Our offensive linemen did a good job with their blocking schemes. We had a couple of problems early but straightened them out."

    "We are still not getting off the ball as quickly as I would like," he added.
