#2 Pulaski rallies past Lincoln County, 61-35

Somerset — For the Pulaski County Maroons, the beat kept rolling at last night’s homecoming game, although visiting Lincoln County proved to be a feisty opponent before the Maroons prevailed by a 61-35 margin, as Johnny Hines club outscored Lincoln by a 40-7 margin at the intermission.

For the first time this season, the Maroons trailed at halftime, falling behind the Patriots 28-21 at the intermission.

However, thanks to four interceptions by the Pulaski defense in the second half, and another huge game from Aaron Smith and Riley Hall, the Maroons rallied to topple Lincoln County by a 61-35 margin.

The Patriots led throughout the first half, getting a pair of touchdown runs from Dionte Coulter, while quarterback Dalton Godbey threw a 74--yard TD pass to Marvin Robertson and a 32--yard scoring toss to Trevor Gaines.

Thanks to four first half touchdown on four possessions, it was Lincoln County leading the Maroons 28-21 at the intermission.

However, PC would respond and respond in a big way in the second half.
