Pulaski goes to 7-0 with 42-26 win over Jaugars

Somerset — The Pulaski County Maroons faced their biggest deficit of the season last night at PC Field, but like the other six opponents before them, the visiting North Laurel Jaguars didn’t have an answer for a high-flying, prolific Maroon offense.

Quarterback Riley Hall threw three touchdown passes, while wide receivers Jake Johnson and George Gregory both had huge night’s in the passing game, helping Pulaski County cruise to a 42-26 victory.

Senior Aaron Smith had another monster game rushing for the Maroons, gaining 140 yards on only 7 carries and 2 touchdowns.

The Jags took the lead early, thanks to a 1-yard run on a fourth and goal early in the game from quarterback Hagan Hodges.

Gabe Blair had a big night for North Laurel with 182 yards rushing on a game-high 39 attempts, but it would not be enough to keep Pulaski from moving to 7-0 on the season, and 2-0 in district play.

After Hodges quarterback sneak, kicker Keaton Kennedy booted a 32-yard field goal giving the Jaguars a 10-0 lead early in the second stanza, but the Maroons would roar back.

Hall hit Gregory for his first touchdown pass of the night -- a 57-yard strike, that got the Maroons right back in the game at 10-7.

Smith then gave his club the lead for good, thanks to his 38-yard TD run late in the first half that gave the Maroons a 14-10 lead at the intermission.

Hall called his own number in the third period, scoring on a 12-yard run, and then PC closed it out with three more scores in the fourth period, which included a 78-yard TD pass from Hall to Jake Johnson.
