Southwestern found themselves in a hole early, as visiting Harlan County jumped out to a 16-0 halftime lead. The Warriors would claw back to make it a game, but it would not be enough in the end, as the Black Bears came away with a 23-18 win on Friday night at the Reservation.
With the five-point victory over the Warriors, Harlan County claimed the Class 5A Region 4 Championship trophy.

Within the game’s first two minutes, it was evident that it was going to be a big night for the home standing Southwestern Warriors against Perry County Central.
