Maroons put down Cougars, 56-22

Goins, Helton, Wooldridge all have 2 TD’s as Pulaski County moves on in playoffs

Somerset —  

On paper it was considered to be a mismatch with two teams heading in opposite directions.
On the field, it proved to be as big of a mismatch as it was on paper.
Homestanding Pulaski County — coming into last night’s opening round of the post season with a 7-3 mark on the year and a third district championship in the past four seasons — made short work of 2-8 Letcher County Central on Friday night at PC Field.
Freshman quarterback Riley Hall looked like a wily veteran last night, completing 24 of 36 passes for a season-high 349 yards and five touchdowns, as the Maroons ran their all-time playoff record at home to 8-0 with an impressive, 56-22 beatdown over the Cougars.
“That was a pretty good offensive showing by our team tonight,” stated a very happy head coach Johnny Hines, after watching his club move to 8-3 on the year with the win.
“When you put up that many points, you’re certainly going to have a lot of yards,” added Hines, when talking about his club’s 593 yards of total offense in the victory. “I’m really proud of our offense, and I think our offensive line has really came together better than it has all year long — those guys have done a great job all season for us. Tonight we started with Kyle Varney at tackle and Hunter Merrick at guard on the left side. Isaiah Jasper of course is our anchor at center, and we moved Jacob Gross to guard on the right side, and we had Tristan Tilley at right tackle. This was probably the best our offensive line has played all year long.”
Indeed, with Pulaski’s offensive line seemingly giving Riley Hall all kinds of time to throw the football, the youngster certainly took advantage by turning in the most prolific night of his young prep career through the air.
