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.
Through their first five games of the 2017 high school football season, the Harlan County Black Bears stood at just 1-4 on the year.
After last night at Southwestern’s Reservation, the Black Bears stood alone as Class 5 A, Region 4 champions.
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.
The Southwestern Warriors came into Friday night’s first round of the Class 5 A playoffs as the defending district champions, and Larry French’s club looked every bit the part and then some, blowing out visiting Perry County Central by a final tally of 56-8.
In their last meeting against Lexington Catholic, Southwestern walked off the field in defeat, having lost to the Knights on a last-second field goal.
On Friday evening at the Reservation, the home standing Warriors would avenge last season’s one-point loss, taking down Lexington Catholic in overtime, 53-47.
Southwestern senior running back Patric Edwards may wear number four on the back of his jersey, but last night at The Reservation, the Warriors go-to guy was number one.
Southwestern’s last trip to PC Field was a miserable one. In that 2015 meeting at Pulaski County, the home standing Maroons defeated the visiting Warriors by a score of 52-6.
On Friday evening, the Warriors’ trip to PC Field was much better, as they took down Pulaski County, 54-20, to claim the Class 5A District 7 championship trophy.
Pulaski County had won nine of the previous 12 meetings against Southwestern coming into Friday night, including last season’s 41-27 win over the Warriors in the regional championship game, but the blue and orange had the answers and then some last night at PC Field, downing Pulaski County 54-20 to win the district title for the third time in Larry French’s tenure at Southwestern.
STANFORD – Paced by a combined seven-touchdown performance from Drew Sawyers and Patric Edwards, along with a strong effort from the defense, the Southwestern Warriors left Death Valley with a 48-7 victory over the Lincoln County Patriots.
STANFORD – The Southwestern Warriors scored about every way imaginable last night on the road at Lincoln County, as the blue and orange set up yet another showdown against arch-rival Pulaski County next week for a district championship, by holding off the homestanding Patriots by a final score of 48-7.
