    Sports Editor

    ODON—Perry Central hopes to overcome an injury-filled regular season by getting some players healthy and winning its first-round football sectional game Friday.
    The 2-6 Commodores will visit 1-8 North Daviess Friday at 6:30 p.m.
    North Daviess has given up an average of 46.6 points per game and scored 9.9 ppg. Its only win was 27-24 over Indiana School for the Deaf Sept. 30.
    “They want to run,” Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson said. “They haven’t thrown a whole lot.”

    Sports Editor

    FERDINAND—Bad passing by Perry Central and strong spiking and digging by North Posey helped the Vikings win 25-13, 25-12, 25-14 in a first-round volleyball sectional match Tuesday.
    “They’ve got a nice team,” Perry Central Coach Becky Genet said of North Posey. “They hit around the blockers and they put the ball down.
    “And they’ve got more than one or two hitters.”

    TELL CITY—Pat Jarboe has resigned as Tell City’s boys soccer coach after two years on the job.
    The Marksmen went 0-12 this season, including a 6-0 loss to Northeast Dubois in the sectional. They scored four goals for the season.
    They also went 0-12 last year with four goals in Jarboe’s first season. That was an improvement from the previous season when they also went 0-12 but scored only one goal under Jarboe’s predecessor.

  • Commodores spike Senators

    CAMPBELLSBURG—Abby Reed made 15 kills as Perry Central overcame a first-set loss to beat West Washington 20-25, 25-12, 25-15, 25-23 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.
    Payton Emmons and Terissa Roark each added eight kills and Ryann Lynch made seven.
    Roark made two blocks and Latisha James added one.
    Addy Davis had a season-high 35 assists.
    Lynch made 27 digs, Courtney Berger 17, Davis 14, Brooke Mullis 13, and Brooke Lasher 12 as the Commodores had one of their best defensive matches of the season.

  • Area teams should form new...

    I had heard rumors that Tell City was interested in leaving the Pocket Athletic Conference to join the Patoka Lake Athletic Conference, and Tell City Principal Brad Ramsey confirmed Oct. 5 that Tell City had applied for PLAC membership.
    But two days later he told me Tell City had withdrawn its application.
    Apparently several parents had complained about the proposed move. I can understand some of their reasons, as the PLAC doesn’t have all the sports Tell City offers: wrestling and boys and girls swimming, soccer and tennis.

    Sports Editor

    MITCHELL—Perry Central committed six turnovers and Mitchell scored touchdowns off three of them to beat the Commodores 47-14 in PLAC football Friday.
    Mitchell already led 6-0 when a Perry Central runner fumbled at his own 45-yard line and Mitchell’s Ethan Bohnenkamp recovered the ball.
    Mitchell quarterback Tyson James then completed a 37-yard pass to Bohnenkamp. That led to Gage Smith’s 10-yard touchdown run two plays later.
    Perry Central’s next drive ended with an interception.

  • Forest Park shuts out Tell City

    Sports Correspondent

    FERDINAND—Tell City was unable to score in a 20-0 loss at Forest Park in PAC football Friday.
    The Marksmen put together a nice opening drive that started from their 27. Tell City ran the ball nine times using Mason Stephens, Joey Ingle, and Steven Wheatley.
    Stephens carried three times for 12 yards, Ingle twice for 11 yards, and Wheatley four times for 5 yards.
    Tell City got it to the Forest Park 44 before turning it over on downs.

  • Cloverport outspikes Cannelton

    CLOVERPORT, Ky.—Cannelton had trouble setting up its spiking game in a 14-25, 25-19, 25-15 volleyball loss to Cloverport Monday.
    Caressa Sloss led Cannelton with two kills and Chloe Davis had one assist.
    “I think we could’ve set it up a little more,” said Cannelton Coach Julie Harris. “But we had several double-hit calls (on sets), so I think the girls were almost hesitant to set it up.”
    April Terry led Cannelton servers with 11 points, including three aces.
