Russell, Lawrence fall

PARIS — Bourbon County rolled up 28 first-quarter points and cruised to a 49-0 victory over Russell in the second round of the Class 3A playoffs on Friday night, ending the Red Devils’ season. The host Colonels (12-0) scored on their first five possessions, led by the rushing of Brent Holman and Charles Johnson.

The Red Devils (7-5) stopped Bourbon County on a pair of fourth-down plays late in the first half to prevent the Colonels from extending their lead. However, on their opening drive of the third quarter, the Colonels needed just four plays to claim a 42-0 advantage with a touchdown at the 9:04 mark. After that score, the clock ran continuously for the remainder of the game. Bourbon County added its final touchdown early in the fourth quarter to cap off the win.

“We never quit. We haven’t quit all year and we didn’t quit tonight,” said Russell coach Ivan McGlone. “The thing about tonight with them (Bourbon County) was I thought they were very good defensively, very physical, very good offensively, and like I told somebody, 'They have speed, speed and speed.'”

The Colonels will host Mason County next Friday in Paris in a repeat of last year’s regional championship game.
