Game of the Week
With very few close matchups, Franklin County vs John Hardin was our game of the week. John Hardin won their district and hosted, while Franklin County lost their final two games of the season to lose their district. John Hardin jumped out to a huge lead in the first half and finished off a 37-7 win in the first round. Franklin County was never able to figure the Bulldogs’ misdirection style offense. FCHS struggled down the homestretch with losses to Spencer County, Collins, and CAL in their final four regular season games. This young Flyers team has a bright future that includes a talented freshman group and several top level underclassmen. But the Flyers could not stop John Hardin on the ground this week. Behind Steven Livers’ 121 yards, the Bulldogs ran for 347 yards. JHHS was great on defense as well as they allowed only 215 yards and forced four turnovers. John Hardin is now is now 8-3 and will face Spencer County next week.

Rickey Johnson scooped it and lateraled it to Mason Alstatt who took it to the house. The game went to OT where Walker Wood bounced in from one yard out. After the missed PAT, Dunbar failed to get a first down on their possession and fell 27-21. Dunbar was a tough team to beat this season. The Bulldogs lost to Scott County and Boyle County by seven, Henry Clay by eight, and Bryan Station by 12. Lafayette continues to play Henry Clay next week.
