The Cougars made the trip to Madisonville on Friday night and played an exciting game against the Hopkins County Central Storm. The Cougars lost the Class4A, District 1 matchup, 12-13.
This past Friday night was a night of firsts for the Logan County Cougars. It was the first District game of the 2015 season. It was the first time the Cougars were to score first this 2015 season. It was the first time the Cougars held a lead at halftime this season. And, unfortunately, it was the first game of the 2015 season that the Cougars lost in an opponent’s come-from-behind effort.
The Cougars offense rushed for 85 yards and passed for 117 yards, a total of 202 yards. In the game, A.J. Sydnor rushed for 29 yards, and Billy Vick rushed for nine yards, including a five yard TD. Robert Dancer was three for eight passing for 117 yards, a TD and two interceptions.
The Cougars’ defense was able to hold the Storm to under 200 yards total offense. But it was turnovers that continued to plague the Cougars. In the game the Cougars turned the ball over five times.
With the win the Storm go to 2-4 and are 1-0 in District play.
The loss continues the Cougars’ winless streak and drops their 2015 overall record to 0-6, including 0-1 in District play.
Next up is a bye week for the Cougars.
After a week off, the Cougars return to action on October 9 when they host the Hopkinsville Tigers at LCHS. After their first loss of the season to Christian County, the Hopkinsville squad will return to action after a bye week this past weekend when they play their first District game of the year against Madisonville-North Hopkins. The Tigers’ overall record is currently 4-1.
