  • P C shuts out Paoli

    LEOPOLD - Perry Central stopped Paoli's option attack and shut out the Senators 20-0 in reserve football Monday.

    "They probably only had two or three first downs all night," said Perry Central Coach Ron Gibson. "They really couldn't move the ball on the ground.

    "I think the JV kids learned a lot Friday night, watching how we took away their option (in the varsity matchup)."

    Perry Central scored one touchdown in each of the first three quarters.

  • North Knox to visit Marksmen

    TELL CITY - Tell City will try to stop North Knox's running game when the two meet in a Class 2A football sectional first-round game Friday at 7 p.m.

    Tell City assistant coach Matt Goffinet said Tuesday that Derek Chambers, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound sophomore running back, is the 7-2 Warriors' top runner.

    "He's very, very quick," said Goffinet. "He's able to make cuts and he's a very good downfield runner."

    Chambers became the team's main running back after gaining 254 yards on just 22 carries last year as a freshman.

  • P C, Trojans facing rematch

    LEOPOLD - Wood Memorial has tweaked its football offense since playing Perry Central Sept. 26, but Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer hopes for the same result when they meet in a sectional game Friday at 7 p.m.

    The Commodores shut out Wood Memorial 31-0 in the regular-season meeting, holding the Trojans to 38 yards rushing on 37 attempts.

    The 2-7 Trojans have since gone to a more wide open passing attack.

    "Against North Daviess (Oct. 3) they probably threw 80 percent of the time," Spencer said Monday. "They were in several wide formations," including a lot of shotgun.

  • Perry Central boys, girls third...

    MARENGO - Perry Central had four boys and four girls place in the top 20 as it finished third in both races at the IHSAA cross country regional Saturday.

    Both Perry Central teams thus qualified for the semistate, to be held this Saturday at Brown County at 9:30 a.m., Perry County time.

    Three Tell City runners also qualified. Sarah Goffinet placed third and Tiffany Davis 14th in the girls race and Alex Fenn 10th in the boys race.

    Each Tell City team finished sixth in a 10-team race. The top five teams and the top 15 individual runners qualified for the semistate.

  • Cougars capitalize on PC special...

    RAMSEY - Perry Central's misplays on special teams led to three North Harrison scores as the Commodores lost to the Cougars 22-0 in eighth grade football Thursday.

    The Cougars scored a safety off a blocked punt, blocked another punt at Tell City's 3-yard line to set up a Cougar touchdown, and ran the third-quarter kickoff back for a touchdown.

    Perry Central's regular defensive unit had "the best game we've played all year," said Coach Neal Stahly. "Outside linebacker Kyle Stevenson made about 12 or 13 tackles."

  • Perry Central teams claim...

    LEOPOLD - Morgan Richardson made four kills, served six aces, and had two assists as Perry Central beat West Washington 25-13, 25-19 in seventh grade volleyball Thursday.

    Mackenzie Etienne added four kills and three aces and Erica Hill had two kills and three aces. Sydney Goffinet had two assists.

    Perry Central finished the season 14-1 overall and went undefeated in PLAC play to claim the conference title.

    The Commodores also won the eighth grade conference title, finishing undefeated in league play and 12-1 overall.

  • Golden Living edges Waupaca II...

    TELL CITY - Logan Harth singled home the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning as Golden Living nipped Waupaca II 15-14 to win the Tell City Fall Coed Softball League playoff tourney Thursday.

    Waupaca II had tied the game with three runs in the top of the seventh on an error and singles by Tim Neyenhaus, Nedra Schaefer and Grant LaMar.

    Brad Chapman led off the bottom of the seventh with a single. He advanced two bases on fly balls before scoring on Harth's hit.

    Harth went 3 for 5 with a double to lead Golden Living's 13-hit attack.

  • Senators defeat Perry Central

    CAMPBELLSBURG - West Washington did a good job receiving serves and beat Perry Central 25-17, 25-14, 25-16 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.

    Perry Central was able to get only one ace serve in against the Senators.

    Jessica Huber made nine kills and three blocks to lead Perry Central.

    Kyla Edwards added five kills and Megan Hedinger made three blocks.

    Sloan Harpenau had six assists and Tessa Lynch added five.

    Hilarie Hahus made 19 digs for the Commodores and Alex Bashor added seven.

  • Back-row passing key to PC, TC...

    When one thinks of volleyball stars, it's typical to think of the tall, high-jumping power hitters in the front row who frequently hammer spikes to the opposing team's floor.

    Tell City graduated its leading spiker, Dana Sibrel, last year. The Marksmen also lost another good hitter, Kathi Kassen, a foreign exchange student who had to return to her native Germany this year.

    But the Marksmen still have several strong hitters this year, including three who are each at least 5-foot-10: Lauren Goffinet, Elizabeth Kohnert and Brittney Harth.

  • Rangers run past Tell City

    FERDINAND - Forest Park scored the first 21 points and held off Tell City 28-13 in football Friday.

    On fourth and goal with Forest Park leading 21-13 with 4:47 left in the game, Tell City still had a chance to tie the game.

    But Tell City's Trent Gunn was stopped inches short of a touchdown and chain links short of a first down.

    The Marksmen went 64 yards on that drive and controlled the clock for over seven minutes.
