    Sports Correspondent

    TELL CITY—Tell City was unable to stop South Spencer’s running game as the Rebels won 43-0 in PAC football Friday.
    The Marksmen gained one first down on their first possession but three plays later had to punt from their own 30-yard line.
    The punt went 40 yards with no return, so the Rebels started on their 30-yard line.
    On the first two plays South Spencer gained 5 yards. An offside penalty against the Marksmen on third down kept the Rebels’ drive alive.

    Sports Editor

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central football coach Greg Gibson moved Alex Simpson to tailback last week to try to get more speed in his backfield.
    Simpson is also a hard runner who is tough to bring down - even with two or three defenders hanging on him. “He squats 400 pounds so he’s got some leg strength,” said Gibson.
    Both attributes were frequently on display as he scored four touchdowns in Friday’s 49-8 PLAC victory over Crawford County.

    He added, “The game was closer than what the score tells you. Forest Park scored a couple of fluke goals.

    Sports Editor

    CANNELTON—Other than running two meets last year, Cannelton hasn’t fielded a full boys cross country team in 15 years.

    But a non-basketball coach is coaching the team and hopes to be competitive despite getting a somewhat late start.
