The Cougars finished (3-1) in the district and will play Allen County-Scottsville at Cougar Stadium on Friday.

The last regular-season game for Logan County was played in a light rain at Todd County on Thursday night. The game was moved to Thursday from the original Friday schedule to avoid the heavy rain expected.

The Cougars had no problems fending off the Rebels in the 28-0 win. Nate Woodall was the winning quarterback in the contest. Woodall has done a fantastic job while filling in for Tyler Ezell as he battles a foot injury. Nate Woodall threw for 256 yards and three touchdowns against the Rebels on Thursday.

Gary Hardy once again piled on the yards as he fought his way to 177 rushing yards on Thursday. Hardy also scored once.

Logan County had two different 100-yard receivers during the game. Maurice Gordon caught six passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Dontavius Blann got 100 yards with only two catches and a score.

Jacob Naylor had 16 pass completions for 109 yards and a touchdown. Naylor was also the rushing leader with 70 yards on the ground. Edward Barber gained 18 yards in eight attempts.

Lennon Ries caught eight of Naylor's passes for 52 yards. Chevis Elliott snagged a touchdown pass and totaled 40 yards on the evening.

The Panther D held Franklin-Simpson to only 37 passing yards during the game. The Cats did most of the damage on the ground with a 293-yard performance.

Looking ahead to Friday, Fort Knox will bring a record of (4-6) to Rhea Stadium to face the Panthers. Last Season, Russellville also hosted Fort Knox in the opening round of the Class 1A playoffs and won 41-8.

Logan County gets a tough Allen County team. The Patriots are (6-4) on the season. Allen County has over 1000 yards receiving as a team this season. They have around 2000 yards on the ground in 2018 with nearly 30 touchdowns.
