Harlan knocks off 'Cats

The Times-Tribune

CORBIN — By John Middleton For the Times-Tribune

With a 21-point lead reduced to nine early in the second half, the Harlan Green Dragons decided they had allowed visiting Lynn Camp to remain in the game long enough.

The Dragons reeled off 26 straight from that point to cruise to a 53-24 victory in the first round of the Class A playoffs on Friday.

“I just think the kids got regenerated and determined to put an end to it,” Harlan coach J.B. Donahue said. "They showed what they were made of in the second half."

The Green Dragons threatened to put the game away early, scoring the game's first 21 points. Cody Logan was responsible for all three scores. The senior tailback hauled in a 12-yard screen pass for a touchdown on the Dragons’ opening drive. He then went in on runs of 9-yards and 13-yards. Logan carried the ball 22 times for 106 yards to power the Harlan rushing attack.

David Allen hauled in a pair of touchdown receptions on passes of 33-yards and 53-yards respectively. Allen had six receptions for 189 yards and three touchdowns.

“David is a big play guy,” Donahue said. “He is such a steady kid, and I can't say enough about the effort he puts forth every week.

“I thought we got a little stale there at the end of the first half, but other than that I thought we controlled the line of scrimmage,” he added. “We ran the ball real well.”
