    Spencer County Journal-Democrat

    REO—For the second consecutive week Tell City’s offense struggled to find consistency as the Marksmen fell to South Spencer 18-6 in PAC football Friday.
    Marksmen Coach Josh Teague said his team wasn’t ready at the start.
    “We didn’t come out in the first half very good at all,” Teague said. “Second half we had a little bit better fight, but we didn’t have an answer for (Jaylen Taylor).”

    MARENGO—Creek Wright rushed for 142 yards and four touchdowns in the first half as Perry Central trounced Crawford County 32-6 in PLAC football Friday.
    Wright scored on runs of 4, 9, 1 and 42 yards as the Commodores built a 26-0 lead with 6:47 left in the first quarter.
    He had made 15 of the Commodores’ 23 carries to that point. But Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson said he still plans to spread the running load among his backs.

    Sports Editor

    MARENGO—Crawford County will bring an 0-2 record into Friday’s 6:30 p.m. PLAC football game with Perry Central and was winless last season as well.
    But there are several indications this will not be the easy win for Perry Central that it has been in the past, including 49-8 last year.
    “I think they’re a lot better,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. “They’re a lot more experienced - they have 14 seniors.”

  • Tell City will try to stop Webb’...

    Sports Editor

    REO—South Spencer’s football team doesn’t have quite as much size or speed as it had last year, but its passing game could give Tell City problems when they meet Friday at 7 p.m.
    Manning Webb, a 6-foot, 165-pound senior, is “a third-year starter returning at quarterback,” noted Tell City Coach Josh Teague.
    Webb missed last week’s game against Gibson Southern with a dislocated shoulder above his non-throwing arm, but Teague thinks he could be ready to play this week.

    “Our girls really turned it on offensively in the second half,” said Tell City Coach Kelsey Henrickson. “We moved Claire Zellers to midfield, and she did a great job there. Maddie Rogers and Jana Lacy also did well passing and moving the ball up the field.
