Colonels fall again

Whitley surrenders most points since 1999 loss to Lawrence County

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / The Endzone Staff

PERRY CENTRAL — The Whitley County Colonels were hoping to turn things around during their first district game of the season, but didn’t have an answer for Perry Central’s offense.

The Commodores scored early and often, defeating the Colonels, 67-22, as Whitley County fell to 0-7 overall and 0-1 against district opposition.

Perry Central (4-3) scored on all 10 of its possessions, as its 67-point output being the most it has scored this season. The 67 points allowed is the most a Whitley County team has given up dating back to Lawrence County’s 68-point output against the colonels on Nov. 5, 1999.

“We just got to get better,” Whitley County coach Jim Black said. “We had a good game plan. We’ll just get back at it — get back to work.

“It doesn’t get any easier,” he added. “We’ve got Harlan (County) coming in.”

Justin Haddux’s squad didn’t waste any time getting on the scoreboard, putting together a six-play, 50-yard drive to take an early 6-0 lead. Tyler Fugate broke loose with an eight-yard run with 9:36 remaining in the first quarter to give his team the edge.

Whitley County answered, though.

Luke Woods’ 15-yard touchdown run capped off an eight-play, 59-yard drive, giving the Colonels a 7-6 lead with 6:20 remaining in the first quarter.

The offensive fireworks continued on Perry Central’s ensuing possession with quarterback Nathan Pray scoring from14 yards out with 3:42 remaining in the opening quarter, as the Commodores reclaimed a 12-7 lead.

After stopping Whitley County on a fourth and one situation, Perry Central scored on its third consecutive offensive possession, as Pray hooked up with Fugate for a 44-yard touchdown strike, increasing the Commodores’ lead to 20-7 at the 1:12 mark of the first quarter.

Another Colonel turnover led to another Perry Central touchdown. The Commodores continued to dominate on offense, as Pray and John Toomer connected for a 30-yard touchdown, giving their team a commanding 26-7 lead with 7:07 remaining in the second quarter.

Haddux’s Commodores added another 30-yard touchdown, its fifth straight, while finding themselves leading Whitley County, 33-7, with 5:03 remaining in the first half.

The Colonels got back on track on their next offensive drive with Woods scoring from one yard out while adding the two-point conversion, cutting Whitley County’s deficit to 33-15 with 2:38 remaining in the second quarter.

Just when it seemed as if Whitley County had gained some momentum, Perry Central’s offensive attack scored once again. Pray ran one in from 10 yards out, giving his team a commanding, 39-15, lead. Fugate added a two-yard touchdown run right before the first half, as Perry Central entered the locker room with a 46-15 advantage.

The Commodores started where they left off in the third quarter, as Pray caught a touchdown pass, increasing his team’s lead to 53-15 at the 9:15 mark.

Both continued to score during the game’s final 20 minutes, but the damage was done early, as Perry Central cruised to the win.
