  • Rebels overpower TC

    TELL CITY - Strong offensive line play helped South Spencer rack up 414 yards of total offense and beat Tell City 42-0 in PAC football Friday.

    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.

    "They were making holes and we weren't filling them," Tell City Coach Don Hitz said about the Rebels' line.

  • Perry Central runs over Wolfpack

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

    The Commodores also caused six turnovers, five fumbles and an interception. Two of Perry Central's six touchdowns were set up by Wolfpack fumbles.

    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.

    Despite the loss, "we played a lot better than we did against Orleans," said Cannelton Coach Heather Daum. "We communicated better and we passed better."

  • PC boys win Boonville meet

  • Commodores stop Cougars

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central held South Decatur to 18 yards of total offense and got a big offensive game from T.J. Hall to beat the Cougars 30-6 in football Saturday.

    The Commodores totally stopped South Decatur's running game, holding the Cougars to minus-2 yards on 25 carries.

    A 20-yard loss after a bad snap on what was supposed to be a punt and two quarterback sacks - one by Dakota Huff and one by Robbie Piper - severely hurt the Cougars' rushing yardage.

    But their top running back, Lincoln Hacker, gained only 35 yards on 18 carries.

    She turned in her best score of the season and tied for the best of her career.

    She finished seven strokes ahead of South Spencer leader Shayna Miller.

    Tell City's second and third scorers were C.J. Fentress with a 63 and Jessica Ballman 65.
