TIMES-NEWS, HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, OCTOBER 10, 2002, PAGE 2-B Continued from front page mark, and a Grigsby run for a two-point conversion, gave Daviess County the lead at 21- 13. The Panthers got the ball next at their own 25, followinga 43- yard Fuqua punt. But the home team struck quickly, reaching the Ohio County end zone in just three plays--all runs. Flaspoehler got nine yards on a quarterback keeper play, fol- lowed by Johnson's 27-yard burst up the middle of the Eagle defense, carrying to the Ohio County 39. Grigsby got the call on the next play, and broke sev- eral tackles enroute to his 89- yard touchdown run, with :45.7 still left in the third period. A pass for the PAT failed, leaving the score 27-13 in the Panthers'favor. Ohio County got a break on their next offensive series when Daviess County was called for a personal foul on an Eagle punt, giving the Eagles an automatic first down at the Panther 46. But an Eagle penalty moved Ohio County back to their own By Sam Ford RAW and Smackdown were both highlighted by big matches, with Smackdown's main event seeing Rey Misterio Jr. getting his second main event win in two weeks, this time by defeating Chris Benoit, while Kane retained the World Tag Team Titles in a four cor- ners match by himself after The Hurricane had been attacked. Kane is quickly being built around as one of the top guys in the RAW promotion, as Misterio is being built, around on Smackdown. The biggest news of the weeks as far as changes in the WWE: first of all, I do not know who Katie Funk is Or if Kane murdered her, but I am inter- ested to see if this is just a cheesy storyline or something with some kind of a point. A1 Snow has jumped to RAW, al- though I don't suspect that he will have a huge impact on the brand. My guess is that Godfa- 48 and three downs later a Farris pass was intercepted by Panther defensive back Brandon Moseley at the Daviess County 16. Johnson got the Panthers out of that hole quickly, bolting 54 yards up the middle of the Ohio County defense on the first play after the turnover. That took the ball to the Eagle 30, and set up Derrick Roberts' 13-yard scoring run four plays later. A run for the PAT following Roberts' score left Daviess County on top 33- 13, with 7:34 left in the game. Ohio County got the ball fol- lowing that score at their own 29, and the Eagles then went to the air to try and get back in the game. Farris threw six consecu- tive times in the drive, with Beddow catching two and before the officials blew their Robbins and tight end Wes whistles. Ohio County recovered Moore one each to move th'e,p g- the ball but a measurement skin to the Panther six-yard lin showed the Eagles short of a first A Panther penalty took the ball down, with the Panthers taking to the three and Vincent blasted upthemiddh for a touchdown on the next play. Farris then hit Moore with a PAT pass, cutting the defi- cit to 33-21 with 5:43 still left. And the Eagles got another big break when freshman Justin Woods recovered a well-executed onside kick at the Ohio County 49. Farris picked up three yards on a first down run but then threw two incomplete passes, bringing up a fourth down play. Then, on a controversial ruling by the game officials, Farris hit senior wide receiver Tristan Pope with a 10-yard pass which should have been good for the first down. But the Panther de- fenders pushed Pope back and stripped the ball from his hands The Ohio tmWEagles vil! try to get back on the winning track this Friday night in a non- district contest against Edmonson County in a game to .be played in Brownsville. Friday's meeting between the Eagles and Wildcats will feature two teams coming in having lost their last two games, and need- ing a win to right their courses. After opening with four straight wins, including a dis- trict win over Grayson County, Ohio County has struggled in their last two contests, losing at Greenwood 27-13 and last week at Daviess County 41-21. Edmonson County has had an up-and-down season thus far, winning three of seven games, but coming in with back-to-back losses to Monroe County (45-6) and Glasgow (20-0). Friday's game could set a tone for either for the rest of the campaign. Ohio County and Class AA Edmonson County do have one opponent in common, as the Wildcats lost to Grayson County 36-0 in the opening game of the season for both squads while the Eagles beat the Cougars at ther did not jump to Smackdown but just made a one-time appear- ance because of his gimmick. Trish Stratus's feud with Victoria is becoming more inter- esting, as is the Lesnar/UT match now that it will be "Hell in a Cell." Nicole Bass's sexual harassment trial has continued to get a lot of attention, as have comments from the WWE that Hulk Hogan is under contract to them, despite what Hogan said last week in a radio inter- view. The WWE's decision to elimi- nate the Intercontinental Title and the beginning of a tag team tournament on Smackdown were both major changes. D-Von and Faarooq seem to be getting a major tag team push and are favorites to win the bolts at this point after defeating Billy and Chuck in the first round. So far, the Guerreros have also ad- vanced, another solid heel tag team on the Smackdown brand. Paul Bearer has left the WWE aRer 12 years with the company, according to the WWE web site. Bob Holly suffered an injury in his match with Brock Lesnar recently that will cause him to be out for half a year. David Flair has been released by the WWE but is still under evalua- tion according to a recent internet report by Jim Ross. Also, Ross said that officials were considering making a per- anent Lance Storm/William Regal team on RAW. Ivory is likely to come back to RAW once she finishes Tough Enough Ill, while Hugh Morrus will be going back to Smackdown and likely competing under his real name. Be sure to check out my weekly wrestling biography in the Ohio County Messenger, which comes out the same day as this newspaper. That's it foi this week. I'll see ya at the matches! sive ends. Russell and Dial open at inside linebackers with Poteet and senior Tyler Turner(5-9,205) at outside linebackers, Wells and senior Daniel Skaggs(5-10,150) at cornerback, and J.R. Graham at safety. Russell also handles the punting chores for Edmonson County. Ohio County's biggest chal- lenge this week will be to try to sustain its offensive and defen- sive momentum for the entire game. In both their losses, the Eagles jumped out to 13-0 first- half leads only to Greenwood and Daviess County come back to score 27 and 33 points, respec- tively, while shutting the Eagles out offensively. According to the Eagle coach- ing staff, Ohio County's game plan is simple: "-We must get fo- Continued from front page may begin to question which was the aberration, the Eagles 4-0 start or their recent two game losing streak? While talk of an undefeated season were cer- tainly premature when after just 5 weeks of a ten week season, a third straight trip to the playoffs still seems completely plausible. Two positives from the last two weeks: One, the Eagles first loss to Greenwood seems to be less embarrassing after the Gators last week narrowly missed upsetting Owensboro Senior. Two, the Eagles loss to Daviess County, although disap- pointing, may not be without some plusses. The Eagles were able to move the ball on the Pan- thers, perhaps indicating that the offensive woes from a week ago are nearly behind them. And the Eagles dominated the first half of action against a strong district opponent. Now the Eagles must find a way to finish. That's the task before the coaches and players. Fradk Ba nes Sta um three weeks ago. Coach Dennis Longs V rddcats run their offense from a variety of formations, including a con- ventional I-formation to a pro- set with three wide receivers, and continues to be a "work-in- progress" during the season. Running the offense is junior quarterback B.J. Russell(6- 0,180), a converted wide receiver, with fullback Jonathan Dial(6- 0,180), a converted tight end, and tailback Ryan Wells(5- 7,150), both also juniors. Sopho- more Dustin Poteet(5-10,155) opens at flanker with junior J.R. Graham(6-0,160) at wide re- ceiver and junior Todd Webb(6- 3,190), a converted quarterback, at tight end. The Edmonson County offen- sive front includes five juniors-- center Kyle Whittinghill(6- 1,205), guards Brandon Hawks(5-9,175), and Brandon Graham(5-11,260), and tackles Daniel Priddy(6-0,225) and Daniel Phelps(6-0,205).

Play every play as hard as (we) can!!...We must be mentally ready to play two halves of football." Kickoffat Wildcat Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m, Friday night. These next two weeks could be critical for the stretch run. The Eagles should be able to work out some kinks and find the fo- cus they've lacked for the last couple weeks. The Eagles continue on the road this week at Edmonson County and next week at Barren County before wrapping up the season hosting Apollo and Owensboro respectively. Soccer season has come to a close once again and the Lady Eagle soccer program has a lot to look forward to. As most of you may know, Ohio County did not field a var- sity soccer team this year since there were too few high school players. Since soccer is consid- ered a full-contact sport, middle school aged players are ineligible for varsity play, which explains the fact that Ohio County had two JV squads this season. The good news is that next season Ohio County will be field- ing a full-fledged varsity soccer squad and will be eligible for promising post-season play. The JV Lady Eagle soccer squad was fairly well-known for causing their op- ponents to bring varsity players down to the JV level so that they could compete with OC, usually with little success. Next season for Lady Eagle soccer will be a season of many firsts. One can't entirely specu- late as to how the Lady Eagles will do, bdt they have the poten- tial to make a serious impact. If this group of girls sticks to- gether until they are seniors, it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that Ohio County couldn't make a run for a state championship. That's how good these girls appear to be. For the sports that have wrapped up their season, thanks to the fans that supported their efforts. For the sports that are coming to an end, let's get some fans out there and support our Eagles and Lady Eagles and they fight it out every point and every yard for a chance at post- season glory. over at their own 43. The Panthers went the 57 yards to the Ohio County end zone in seven plays--all runs-- with Roberts getting his second touchdown on a two-yard run with :35.2 left on the clock. Holder Greg Free ran for the two-point PAT following that score to account for the final 41- 21 margin. On the PAT play, Ohio County reserve linebacker Michael Schroader(5-4,130jun- ior) and Panther lineman Aus- tin Edge(6-5,285junior) got into an altercation resulting in both being ejected. The ejections mean neither will be eligible to play in this week's games. Ohio County got the ball af- ter the Daviess County score at Continued from front page senior Nick Phelps shot 86, and freshman Evan Nelson recorded a 93 for Shown's squad. Hancock County's Nick Grif- fin qualified for the state meet with his score of 72, while Apollo's Brian Richards and Hopkinsville's Tyler Osteen fired rounds of 74 to make the state fmals. their own 35, with Farris scram- bling for 12 yards and a first down on the first play. On the play, Farris was pushed out of bounds into the Daviess County bench and was knocked down there, where he had to be at- tended to. After a couple of'min- utes, the Eagle senior managed to get up and returned to the Ohio County sideline, with se- nior Jodie Snodgrass taking over at quarterback. Snodgrass threw an incomplete pass on first down, then hit Pope with a 15-yarder and then found Beddow with a 30-yard bomb to the Panther 5. A final pass at- tempt from Snodgrass was caught by Beddow in the Daviess County end zone as the clock expired, but an official ruled Beddow had stepped out of bounds before the catch, ending the game.
