First-quarter woes lead to district loss

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CAWOOD — Coming into Friday’s contest against Harlan County, Colonel coach Jim Black had warned despite the two teams being even on paper, he felt like the Black Bears were a better, more physical team than his.

It didn’t take long for the Black Bears to prove him right as Tom Larkey’s squad jumped out to a 19-0 lead with less than five minutes to play in the first quarter while going on to grab a 40-13 win.

After the loss, Black said the early deficit was due to several things.

“We made it easy on them in the first quarter,” he said. “They are a good team and I knew they were going to be able to run the ball like that, but we didn’t do anything to help ourselves in the first quarter.

The Black bears struck first, rattling off three straight touchdowns to start  the first quarter. Two of which came via runs by Jake Middleton (six yards and 13 yards) with a 70-yard punt return by Treyvon Long sandwiched in between them.

Whitley County responded with 1:48 to play in the first quarter on a 26-yard touchdown strike from Austin Ysidro to Zack Mills to trim the deficit to 19-7.

After another touchdown run by Middleton to push Harlan County’s lead to 26-7, Boston Bryant was able to find the end zone for the Colonels on a three-yard scamper to make the score 26-13 with just over three minutes to play in the first half.

That was enough time for the Black Bears to strike again as Middleton capped a Harlan County drive off for the fourth time in the half with a touchdown, this time from one yard out, to put his team on top 34-13 at halftime.

Harlan County would add one more touchdown to close out the scoring as Scotty Bailey scored from one yard to put the Black Bears on top 40-13.
