Big Wins
Big team performances were also a part of the weekend.  Clay County knocked off Scott County in Georgetown (Ranked #5 in Class 6A) 41-26.  Middlesboro also got their first win under new coach Randy Frazier by topping Letcher Central (Ranked #8 in Class 5A) 13-9. 

Pike's Peak
It was another great Pike County Bowl this weekend with big crowds for both nights.  The biggest win in the 4 games has to go to Brad Allen and East Ridge after the Warriors beat Shelby Valley for the first time 31-6.  Belfry avoided their first 0-2 start to a season since 1998 by rallying to beat (Cov.) Holy Cross 20-14.  Pike Central looked very impressive in their 47-14 victory over Phelps by jumping out to a big lead.  The Hawks scored on their first 3 possessions (under the direction of new starting QB Allan Boggs) and got a nearly 100 yard interception return for a TD by Cory Shouse.  Pikeville struggled early before beating Boyd County 16-7.  The defense looked excellent and QB Randy Maynard ( a converted WR) ran for 2 touchdowns.

    If I can remember right Breathitt has dominated alot of football in Pike County. Its going to interesting to see what comes of Pike Central in November. Could we see a Pike Central Breathitt game up at the Hawks field? If so who my money is on Central. Bigger line and more people going in and out of the game. But Breathitt has alot of heart. Ive never seen a team that has so many young kids playing, yet still finds ways to win a game. Seems like the Pike Central program got a big jump when Shouse and Boggs left the river bank for the hill!

    Congrat's East Ridge on a huge win. From the sounds of things in Pike County, Breathitt County boys are running wild over there. With Brad Allen (head coach at East Ridge), Chapman(head coach at Pike central) and the arrival of Alan Boggs and Cory Shouse, also young athletes from Breathitt County. Holcomb knows how to build smart and athletic people. Congrat's Breathitt County on dominating the Pike County Bowl
